Becka Brown: press

"In a breathtaking debut, Becka Brown delivers a glittering, astute collection of smart songwriting with even smarter delivery. Do You Know Me is a breezy, touching record of contemporary pop and folk in the vein of Shawn Colvin and Suzanne Vega.

Delicately envisioned and deftly produced by Regie Hamm and Matt Pierson, the tracks on Do You Know Me perfectly frame Brown's bejeweled voice and her dexterous melodies. Touches of percussion and piano at just the right moments are reminiscent of Lyle Lovett's best ballads, while Brown's shimmering background vocals add an ethereal Sarah MacLachlan effect.

Even when the lyrics are at their most melancholic, as on the title track, Brown's voice possesses a certain joy in making music that can lift the heaviest heart."
Clay Steakley - Performing Songwriter
"A lilting soprano who obviously knows her way around a hook or two. Extremely melodic and catchy with a lovely innocence and freshness in its spare, ear-catching production.........I'm happy to report that there is some fine new talent in our midst. I refer to singer-songwriters Becka Brown and Carter Wood, either of whom would be at home on the main stage at Lilith Fair. They share our DISCovery Award for this issue."
Robert K. Oermann - Music Row Magazine
"Just when you thought the real singer/songwriter with an original point of view was a thing of the past, along comes Becka Brown with a stunning debut that will make a fervent believer out of the most cynical music fan. With songs that deftly explore the wonders and blunders of love and a voice that sounds like a new morning, Brown manages to sound intimately familiar and like no one you've ever heard - all at once. If you long for the same rush you felt the first time you heard, say, Joni Mitchell, Becka Brown is someone you should know."
