Rebecca Lappa may have been Canada’s best kept folk-rock secret – until now. The Canadian Folk Music Awards recipient and Edmonton Music Awards winner is Canada’s brightest new voice.
The Edmonton based singer-songwriter won top prize for her song, “Valiant of Vimy Ridge” in the Spirit of Vimy contest hosted by the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta. Rebecca enjoyed her prize trip to Vimy Ridge (2017) to mark the centennial of the First World War battle. While her music is a combination of folk, pop and rock, there’s “that” voice – compelling in range, certain with every note – and her lyrics – strong, thought provoking, storytelling in nature and sometimes peppered with wit.
