Combining enigmatic visual artistry, thought-provoking lyric writing, and genuine wonder, Rebekah Fitch is a new artist that will spark intrigue. The power of music is in its ability to carry a message, and this is exactly what Rebekah does. With a love for memorable melodies alongside a thirst for artistic and sonic experimentation, Rebekah is an artist always striving for something new, and not afraid to push the boundaries.
She has already gained commercial success with playlisting on Cool FM, U105 and Dublin’s FM104 (as their Select Irish Artist), as well as performing live sessions on BBC Radio Ulster, Metro Radio, SPIN1038 and more. Her dynamic multi-instrumental live shows, complete with mesmerizing live-looping, flute, and powerful vocals, are now in constant demand.
Poison is a question to the listener, addressing the way we are taught to think and what we are taught to value by society. We are constantly bombarded with magazines, images, things that tell us what we should want and who we should be, but in reality, so many of these things are superficial and unattainable. It is used as a means of control – what to buy, what to prioritise, what to spend our time on. This constant focus on surface level things is numbing our brains from focusing on the more meaningful aspects of life; distracting us from becoming the fullest version of our unique selves – but we are starting to call it out.
In 2018 she released her debut EP, Broken Mind, which was praised by Clash Magazine, Nialler9, The Thin Air and more. Following this release, she embarked on her first tour of the UK and Ireland, supported Britain’s Got Talent Winner, Tokio Myers, in the SSE Arena Belfast, and performed to a sold-out Koko in London. Further critical acclaim came from being awarded the PRS Foundation’s Lynsey De Paul Prize, as well as being a nominee for the NI Music Prize Oh Yeah Contender Award (best emerging act). Rebekah’s most recent release, Need To Feel, was picked up by tens of thousands on Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist, made No. 6 in Chordblossom’s Top NI Releases and No. 88 in The Thin Air’s Top Irish Releases of 2018. The video for the track sparked a strong reaction of admiration online due to the bravely honest narrative surrounding mental health.
