ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Everybody leaving a Rebecca Loebe performance is either a friend or a fan. The energetic presentation of her original songs makes a personal connection, describing everyday events and emotions with touching poetry and powerful honesty. Quirky effervescence one minute and smoky angst the next, Rebecca's friendly, alluring and comfortable presence on stage can only be attributed to her years of performance experience. Rebecca first appeared on the Atlanta club and coffeehouse scene at the age of fifteen, and has been hooked ever since.

Determined and driven, Rebecca graduated high school early in order to study music and sound engineering. Living in Boston, she is currently performing to enthusiastic, receptive crowds at clubs, colleges and coffeehouses up and down the east coast.

In late November of 2004, Rebecca was very excited to release her debut album to a packed house at Atlanta's renowned Eddie's Attic. The independent release "Hey, It's a Lonely World," is the 21-year-old singer/songwriter's first full-length effort and was self-produced in the summer of 2004.

Born outside of Washington DC, Rebecca moved to Atlanta while a small child. Although she had been singing her entire life, it wasn't until she received her first guitar (a cheap black Washburn Flying-V knock-off with yellowing humbuckers and a whammie bar) that she began to write songs. Once she got her hands on her father's acoustic guitar, a 1967 Martin, there was nothing holding her back from the local folk scene. Her early attempts at songwriting were well received in the Atlanta folk community - she made her first appearance on the Eddie's Attic stage, at the renowned Monday Night Open Mic, at the age of 15. Bolstered by a favorable local response, she continued work on her songwriting and musicianship and left home days after her 17th birthday to study at Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music.

After graduating with a degree in the college's highly selective Music Production and Engineering department, Rebecca launched her most challenging project yet: her first full-length CD. Her primary goal was clear from the beginning. She says, "It was most important to me that I create an album that represents who I am musically right now. If a stranger pays me the high compliment of purchasing an album based on my live show, I want the music that they hear in their CD player to be recognizable as the music that they heard performed live!"

The resulting album is a reflection of Rebecca's highly energetic, and highly emotional, live performances. To learn more about Rebecca's exciting career and tour schedule, visit www.rebeccaloebe.com.

Becca has grown into an amazing songwriter.
Rebecca Loebe is a capable singer and a very talented songwriter. "Grace" is the best song on this disc, and the others are quite good as well. This young woman has stories to tell and the medium to tell them.

Jenny Jenny

whew- it's hot
The songs touch you the way that Christina Amphlett, the lead singer of the Divinyls and the song ‘I Touch Myself,’ does when she thinks about you… Ok, well actually, maybe not exactly in that same way, but I guess what I’m saying is just that the music is reeeeaaal good.
To sum it up, listening to the CD is like eating a fireball… an incredibly delicious fireball… with red hots on top… and hot tamales.

Ciro Pietri

Wonderful!
Great storytelling & composition. The production is very well done, retaining the earthy folksy feel of Rebecca, yet adding just a touch of gloss. The entire album works well as a cohesive work, with good mood shifts and the feel of a complete musical arc when listened to beginning to end. Some of the songs run together, though, and that's what makes it 4 stars. Otherwise - wonderful!

This is a terrific CD, especially for a freshman release. I can't wait to see Rebecca live, and am looking forward to her next CD.

Phillip Reid

Stands out
We have an excellent local adult alternative station, which is where I first heard songs from Hey It's A Lonely World, performed live in the studio by Rebecca, who was in town for a gig. Every song on her record is better than 30-40% of their playlist. Her voice, her playing, the arrangements, accompaniment--it's all spot-on. The production is perfect, too--more credit for Rebecca, who produced it herself. Buy her CD and see her live. She's worth it.

Terri

The stuff life is made of
It is very rare that I enjoy the intire CD the way I have enjoyed this one. I put this CD on at leased once a day and sing along to the words. It has become the sound track in my head!

Davey Jimbo

The most amazing indie album to come in a long LONG time...
Hearing an album of this quality and caliber leaves you with a thirst that could only be quenched by more of the same. 'Hey it's a lonely world' teases listeners like a drug addiction. Entirely satisfying at first, but now you yearn for another album that will do the same. This disc has only left my cd player long enough to cool off. Any music fan will testify that Rebecca Loebe has both a sweetness and intensity unmatched by anyone in the industry today. Do yourself a favor and pick up this disc.

It was a great CD, I'm happy I took the time to listen to it.

Roger McColly

CD was in perfect condition and sounds great!!
CD came soon after I ordered it. The sound is excellent. I really like having the words to the songs. The day after I received it I listened to it while driving 8 hours. And a few hours each day since then. It is great listening to someone that you know feels each song with personal experience. Thank you all so much.

Stella Omega Krauz

Absolutely love the CD, she has a beautiful voice, love the lyrics!!
When I first heard her song on Podshow I wanted to buy it right away. I am so happy that I did, I am very happy and satisfied. I wish I could see her live. I am looking forward to her next CD.. please keep me informed. Many Thanks
