ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Rebekah is refreshing for the excessive "pop"-ulation of female artists these days and something different is much appreciated. A melting pot of sweet vocal fondue. Her sound is as alluring and thankfully not over-dressed with instrumentation rather what instruments are there are working to showcase the real talent behind the project...Rebekah's vocals. Nice. Lovely. I'm a fan. "
- Annette Warner

"absolutely refreshing..Every song and I do mean EVERY song on her CD is a jewel..Bravisimo!"
-Unsigned Music Magazine, Issue 13

"Her voice keeps you in a state of suspended animation as she delivers poignant stories, heartfelt lyrics, and subtle intensity that engages your emotions."
-Gian Fiero
The Muse's Muse

"very well written..a nice glimpse into what this artist has to offer..Her voice is beautiful, soothing, the kind you could listen to all day..These songs are just dripping with soul. I don't mean "soul music" but that kind of conviction that seeps inside the listener."
-Amy Lotsberg
Collected Sounds



Rebekah Jordan grew up in an all black neighborhood in Cleveland listening to everything from James Brown to João Gilberto, Motown to Mozart, Paul McCartney to the Pixies, which explains the eclectic sound of her music.

A budding songwriter, Rebekah's song "Beautiful Disaster" was recorded by Kelly Clarkson, the first American Idol winner. Kelly loved the song so much she put it on both of her albums, produced by Matthew Wilder (of No Doubt fame) on her first self-titled release and as an acoustic bonus track on her most recent release, Breakaway.

Though she's had had lead roles in the Warner Brothers movie "Liberty Heights" directed by Barry Levinson (Avalon, Rainman, Diner) and most recently in "Latter Days", an indie film written and directed by C. Jay Cox, who also wrote the hit movie "Sweet Home Alabama", for Rebekah, music is her love.

"Everyone in our family was musical. But music was something you did at church or at home on the weekends. So as a kid, it never occurred to me that making a life of it was feasible or even wise." So after high school, Rebekah went off to study biomedical engineering. "I showed up wearing mocassins and tie-dye with a crystal around my neck, blasting the Cocteau Twins. To say I didn't fit in would be an understatement. People always thought I was in the wrong building, they would point me towards the art department. One day I realized they were right."

Rebekah financed, produced and has now released her CD independently through her own Tea Party Records. The 6 song EP, titled "The Trouble With Fiction" includes 5 original songs and what is becoming a signature recording of the Stevie Nicks classic, "Dreams".

For the recordings, Rebekah enlisted the help of the very talented musicians who play with her on stage: Jessica Catron, John Ballinger (Rufus Wainwright) and Butch (from the Eels, Rufus Wainwright, and Tracy Chapman).

Love Rebekah and Love This CD :)

Gentle, mellow and refreshing
Very professional recording for an indie EP, I found the album after hearing 'Dreams' (Stevie Nicks' remake) on the local college radio station. The gem of the album is 'Bliss' especially if you like similes, but it flows very nicely. Rebekah has a lilting voice that genuflects pleasantly as she gets used to a chorus. All the songs are good, and you won't feel the need to skip over anything. This isn't groundbreaking original, but if you're the type who just likes to listen (as I am), this album is for you.

I hope to hear more from Rebekah soon.

absolutely refreshing
THE TROUBLE WITH FICTION is my favorite album right now. I fell in love with Jordan's music with REMEMBER TO BREATHE, which is in my top 5 favorite contemporary albums. Her sound and voice is so unique and a refreshing change from the banal female vocalists popular right now. I'd recommend this CD to any and everybody.

Your Voice...Your Songs
The true definition of a songwriter. Nobody could sing YOUR songs like YOU do. The command of a genius with the innocence of a flower. I would relish the opportunity to create with you in the future...

Excellent CD! Definitely love Dreams and Bliss. Just hits the spot for my musical taste!

Blast from the Past
Last summer, I was in a used cd store when I came across a cd by Rebekah called "Remember to Breather" on Elektra Records. the first and last track are two of my all-time favortie songs. But I could not find anymore material by her except a live version of one of her songs on a Lilith Fair Comp.

Well, SHE'S BACK BABY! My favorite track is "The Art of Losing." Grab this record, its hot.

Impressive
I have been waiting for something from Rebecca ever since Latter Days and this is well worth the wait. Her sound is refreshing and honest. An impressive group of songs on this EP. Brandon Shea, www.brandonshea.com
