Rebecca Loebe | Friday, February 7, 2014

Rebecca Loebe makes her Sundilla debut on February 7, but odds are excellent that it won’t be her last Sundilla appearance; the phrase “back by popular demand” is likely to become a staple when introducing Rebecca. Showtime at the AUUF is 7:30; admission at the door will be $12, but $10 advance tickets will be available on this very site, and at Spicer’s Music and Mama Mocha’s Coffee.

Award winning singer/songwriter Rebecca Loebe is both candid and self-deprecating, attributes that shine through in her songwriting and laugh-out-loud storytelling. Since quitting her job as a full-time recording studio engineer, she has performed an average of 150 shows per year in listening rooms, festivals and theaters in over 30 states of the US and in Europe. Last spring she took a break from the road to appear as a contestant on Season 1 of NBC’s “The Voice,” with a performance of Nirvana’s ‘Come As You Are’ that inspired Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine to offer her mentorship and charted on iTunes worldwide. An Atlanta native, Loebe now makes her home in Austin. She is touring nationally to support her 3rd full length release CIRCUS HEART, an album that mixes intimate folk with jubilant pop and has received rave reviews from all over the world.
