Bec Stevens is an old soul. Not in the dust-and-mothballs fashion, but in that tugging, goosebump-raising way – something wholly familiar yet captivating and un-pinpointable. Her voice is a trigger, prompting reflections of your own life while she brazenly steps us through her own. All of it’s there in its worn grooves, its pitched valleys. Line-by-line, verse-by-verse, it’s a voice that threads you back to something thought completely faded: that first house you moved into after finishing school, a party in motion, a moment – a lost feeling – somehow intact, frozen in time.
After humble beginnings in her home state of Tasmania, 2013 saw a move to Adelaide for Bec. Despite the relocation it wasn’t long before she was welcomed with open arms by the local music community, for her friendly smile and powerful, celestial voice. Rigorous touring Australia-wide, weekend in, weekend out, soon eventuated to landing impressive support slots with Australian music royalty such as Tim Rogers and Missy Higgins, as well as countless international artists including the illustrious Julien Baker (USA).
A new home city and a new perspective, relationships loved and lost, new friends and new experiences brought to life the heartfelt solo debut release ‘More Scared Than Me’ in 2016. This would soon cement Bec Stevens as a nationally recognised, hardworking and inspiring young artist. A strong debut and breathtaking performances around the nation also landed Bec nominations for ‘Best Female Artist’, ‘Best New Artist and ‘Best Punk Artist’ in the SA Music Awards.
Now with a full band backing her and a recent signing with Hobbledehoy Records, Bec is finalising work on her sophomore album (due for release in 2019). armed for the massive year ahead.
