Becca Burn is a singer and songwriter from just outside London. She writes music that has a country pop folk sound, with a splash of gospel and a hint of the classical. Her music has a warm and organic feel, with catchy melodies and honest lyrics.
She writes to make connection with people - to tell the story of the unsung life. She writes because she can't not.
She loves telling the womanhood story through her music: giving a mic to the ordinary life. She writes honestly out of her own experiences to tell the story of motherhood and middle age; mental heath and hope; juggle and struggle; aspiration and acceptance. She aims to give voice to a story that she could not hear being told .
She is perhaps not a conventional artist. She has three degrees and three young children - although the children are probably a bigger influence than the degrees! She also draws on her work as a Music Psychotherapist in her songwriting, and believes that music has a therapeutic power.
Her first solo artist EP, ‘Edge of Myself’ is being released in Feb 2021. This EP is part of collection of songs written out of the early years of motherhood. This may not be seen as the coolest thing to write about but it is unbelievably important; and the themes are universal whether or not the listener is a mother.
The songs on this EP provide snapshots into the overwhelming challenges and joys of the ordinary life of many women. They chart a journey through the stretch to body and mind; the changes to identity and self; the struggles with mental health; the importance of relationship and connection; the fight for equality; and ultimately trying to find a sense of hope, purpose and acceptance.
Perhaps never before have women experienced such extremes in role and expectation. This is the ‘juggle-struggle’ generation; and yet this story is not told loudly within history; the arts; or society in general. This EP voices Becca Burn’s own experiences as a member of this generation; using her 'big voice' to talk about the 'little things'.
It hopes to raise the profile of that narrative within the world of music. It also aims to honour and value the experiences and stories of every woman; and every person who needs to connect to a sense of hope.
