Rebekah grew up in a talented family, with both of her parents working as professional musicians in Australia. Always surrounded by live music and wrapped in a blanket of classic soul, blues, jazz, country and gospel music, she fell in love with the stage and started performing at a young age.
Established as a backing vocalist, Bek has recorded and toured nationally with some of Australia’s finest artists, including Jimmy Barnes, Tina Harrod, Sleepy Jackson and Paul McDermott, and has released numerous original recordings, both signed and unsigned, under different guises. In 2007 Bek teamed up with producer/composer/guitarist Marty Hailey (Jimmy Little, David Campbell) to release an original album titled COUNTING THE DAYS by THE FAVOURITES.
In 2009, Bek and her musician husband, Michael Wheatley, built their own professional recording studio, Nut n Butter Studio in Marrickville, Sydney and started preparing for Bek’s first solo album. She began collaborating with friends, and taught and played gigs around the country to raise funds for the project.
In 2010, Bek was offered a 4½ month singing contract in Japan and left her family to keep her dream alive and reconnect with her own unique sound. Following this, she called upon some of Australia’s finest musicians – Tim Curnick, Banel Martinez, Calvin Welch, Hamish Stuart, Jon Zwartz, Alphamama, Ngaiire and Serg Coniglione – and produced BEK KIMOCHI, an album of raw, honest and heartfelt songs. Recorded and mixed by Michael at Nut n Butter, this album was released in 2012.
2014, Bek is delivering a fresh new sound with LUCKY, her new EP. In collaboration with producer/composer Tim Hall (The Whitlams, Chakra Diva, The Strange), and making it possible through crowd funding, Bek rocks our world with a blend of organic, electro soul. Lucky is quirky, adventurous and soulful with each song delivering emotions that give the listener a thrill that only Bek can deliver. With edgy and very catchy sounds, it’s fun to listen to on those days when you’re feeling good, the sun is shining and everything is going your way. The EP also includes the single Sugar Pie which Bek released earlier in the year along with an explosive and colourful filmclip.
