Rebekka Bakken is without any doubt one of the most distinctive voices in Europe. Although she performs regularly in many jazz festivals and venues, her music definitively reflects a wide mixture of styles: the connection to blues, soul, folk and country is more than evident. Bakken uses her virtuous 3 octave vocal range in first place to tell great stories, without caring too much about music labels. Critics often highlight Bakken´s ability to deliver memorable live concerts showing a hypnotizing stage presence and establishing a meaningful connection with the audience.
Her new album Things You Leave Behind presents Rebekka Bakken as an extraordinarily mature singer and songwriter.
