ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rebecca Loebe is best known for her energetic live performances. Her songbird voice carries the show while her buoyant personality captivates audiences and has them laughing, shouting and singing along. Fans of the Americana/folk tradition identify with her breezy storytelling while audiences of mainstream pop/rock sing along to her catchy, confessional original songs. In the past year she has performed 150 shows and shared the stage with Sophie B. Hawkins, Ellis Paul, Halcyon and classic rock legend America.

It hasn't been too long since Rebecca was working as an engineer at a Boston recording studio, fresh of out college and quietly recording on her own folk/rock songs during off-hours. Encouraged by support and participation from 2-time Grammy award winner Robert Hadley (mastering engineer whose credits include Stevie Nicks, Carly Simon and The Dixie Chicks), Rebecca released this collection of material as her full-length debut solo album, Hey, its a Lonely World. The debut album quickly got the attention of critics and music fans in the northeast (Mary Hamilton of the Northeast Performer hailed her vocal delivery as "part inside joke and part prayer"), and Rebecca began calling out shifts at the studio to keep up with her rapidly-increasing tour schedule.

Fresh off a whirlwind college tour in the spring of 2007, Rebecca is gearing up to release her second album, an EP entitled The Brooklyn Series. This 6-song EP has its origins in a month-long break from touring Rebecca spent in New York last spring. During this respite she divided her time between song-writing in a rented room in the notorious Bed-Stye neighborhood of Brooklyn and seeking inspiration in the city at large. The new body of work was road-tested at various open mics and songwriter circles around New York City and integrated into her live set during her summer New England, Southeast and West Coast tours. Recorded at the very end of 2006 and the beginning of 2007 with Atlanta producer Will Robertson (Blake Guthrie, Arlington Priest), The Brooklyn Series is a reflection of Rebecca's growth as a songwriter and a young woman as she takes a darker and more humorous look at the world around her. Best enjoyed with dark chocolate and red wine.

Very, very nice.
This is almost a whiplash change of direction from "...Lonely World", but it's worth a serious listen. The compositions retain the same well-structured quality we've heard before from Ms. Loebe, but the lyrics are much darker and almost brooding. The departures from the introspective tone ("Call me Baby", a cover of Smokey Robinson's "You've Really Got a Hold On Me" and the return of "Lay Me Down Lowly") bring well-placed changes in mood, but somehow hold together the overall haunting feel of the album. A very, very nice layover to keep us happy until the next LP is released. 5 stars on this one as a nod to the bravado needed to tread the fine line between introspection and darkness, which is done excellently.
