One Night Only! With a special guest performer Raina Rose kicking off the show!

Rebecca Loebe is a laid-back award-winning indie-folk singer from Atlanta, GA. Since quitting her job as a full-time recording studio engineer in 2006, she has performed 100+ shows per year at colleges, coffeehouses and theaters in over 30 states of the US and in Europe. In the spring of 2011, her performance on the US premiere of “The Voice” impressed celebrity coaches Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine, prompting them both to ask her to work with them.

Although participating in a major network television show gave Loebe’s career an undeniable boost, she had already been supporting herself as a fulltime touring indie/roots singing songwriter for 4 years. In the May of 2009 she was honored as a winner of the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Award, and the next year her full-length album ‘Mystery Prize’ spent over 2 months on both the US and European Americana Charts. In the UK, Mystery Prize received a 4-star review from Maverick Magazine, which reported the “sophomore album sparkles and bubbles.” Ed Muitjens of Johnny’s Garden in The Netherlands wrote, “’Mystery Prize’ exhales originality and creativity.” Of Rebecca herself, TX music critic Jeanna Goodrich said, “Her voice instantly took my breath away; I could tell right from the start: Rebecca Loebe was born for this.”

About Raina Rose:  

As the second daughter of a country music historian and a Jewish poet, Americana musician and songwriter Raina Rose revels in sharing with you her beautifully twisted, yet refreshingly optimistic perspective on the world. Her unique voice and exceptional guitar playing transcend age, gender, generation, and even catch the ears of those who aren't typically into acoustic guitar-driven songwriting. Born in Reagan-era Los Angeles, Raina moved to Portland, OR with her family in 1988. Growing up in a house alive with ‘60s pop and good ole' fashioned country music, Raina was given a guitar at age eleven and sent around the corner for lessons. She now lives in Austin, TX.   "...bursting with talent" - WFUV, John Platt NYC. Here's "Neighbor's Trampoline."
