Up-and-coming singer-songwriter, Rebecca Correia, who Vance Gilbert called a ‘broken-winged angel’ after their first shared performance, is a young veteran with already over 200 songs to her credit.

Growing up on a rural horse farm in the little town of Rochester, Massachusetts, Rebecca savored her natural surroundings and began writing songs at age nine. After having earned a degree in music education vocal emphasis from the prestigious Hartt School of Music in West Hartford, CT., Rebecca paved her way on the road, averaging 150 shows a year, from Boston and New York to Miami and Los Angeles. She now splits her time between Rochester, MA and Leipers Fork, TN (the haven for music lovers and legends just outside of Nashville), where she has been embraced as a formidable talent by fellow musicians and garnered a loyal following of discerning fans.
