Rebekah Todd grew up in Benson, surrounded by music. Her father, a musician himself, flooded the house with sounds of classic rock and folk, playing everything from Pink Floyd to the Righteous Brothers. This led Rebekah to instantly find her musical niche somewhere between melodic soul and alternative folk rock.
With her soulful voice and musical style, Rebekah pulls inspiration from a wide range of musical genres. She cites singer/songwriters like Lauryn Hill and Susan Tedeschi as her inspiration and credits them for shaping the music she writes and performs today.
Currently based in Wilmington, NC, Rebekah has several releases under her belt — Forget Me Not (2011), Roots Bury Deep (2014), and most recently Crooked Lines (2017). Rebekah and her band, Rebekah Todd & The Odyssey, won the On The Rise series for FloydFest 2016.
The one-hour livestream concert is free, but you can help support Rebekha and the band with a donation to their virtual tip jar during the show. Set a reminder and join us on Facebook Live at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, August 12.
