Interview with Geeks Unleashed:
Rebekah had told me to meet her in a quiet bar in central London, which is a tautology if I ever heard one. Nevertheless, Miss Delgado is a woman of her word, and I found myself alone in the back room of a Medina-themed bar and restaurant, my head filled with the ethereal scent of wafting incense. And as is the case with all rockstars worth their salt, Rebekah was late, partly due to the fact that I had gone to the wrong Medina-themed bar… I never banked on there being two on the same street.
Interview with God Is In The TV:
“London-based Rebekah Delgado has produced a marvelously theatrical self funded album entitled ‘Don’t Sleep’ unlike many one or two track albums that are padded out with filler. Don’t Sleep resembles more of a musical novel to be explored and savoured: its themes and sounds shifting from from sprawlingly cinematic (‘Lamentine’) and perky French Pop about self gratification (‘Manage A Moi’) to Nick Cave-esque blood soaked gypsy waltzes(‘Little Boy Blue’ and ‘Scoundrel’). Don’t Sleep seems to have an Eastern European presence hanging over its sound and aesthetic(starting with the album cover), thus these shadow over her historical murder ballad narratives and rousing observations of tough times laced with insomnia and depression led by Spanish guitars, pianos and grand melodies (‘Don’t Sleep’, ‘Sing You Through the Storm’). These songs are threaded together with Delgado’s husky weathered tone residing somewhere between Kirsty Mccoll and Amanda Palmer, but sounding utterly knowing, devilish and laced with black humour. Don’t Sleep is a pop album of great worth. We caught up with the very talented flame haired lady herself for a little Q & A session…..”
Radio interview with Bob Fischer on BBC Tees – June 2012:
From the Von Pip Musical Express:
“If hard work, talent and passion for your craft were the sort of attributes big record labels valued when signing artists, then Rebekah Delgado would surely be doing that whole Jools Holland thing whilst being regularly playlisted by radio stations the length and breadth of this sceptic isle. But the truth is even in the internet age, it can still be difficult to break through to the next level without a reasonable budget or the backing of the corporate big boys.”
