Becca Mancari expands September tour and announces festival appearance16-04-2018
When Becca Mancari sings, she shines with authenticity. It is evident that Mancari knows exactly who she is, and her music has a strong sense of identity. But it is her refusal to subscribe to molds and societies trends that sets Mancari apart. Mancari is challenging all of us to throw away the old book and create a new genre of music
Becca Mancari is rewriting the rules.
Born in Staten Island, New York, to an Italian-Irish preacher and a Puerto Rican mother, Mancari has lived a life of transition - from working as a janitor in South Florida, to writing songs with train hoppers in the Blue Ridge Mountains and seeking spirituality in India. But it was her time in Virginia and Nashville where she found the roots music that would continue to inspire her musical evolution to today.
Her highly anticipated debut album, Good Woman, is hauntingly lonesome, with dust-cloud swells of electric guitar and don't-look-back lyrics revealing scenes from Mancari's well-travelled story. Mancari's curiosity to see the world with eager, fresh eyes draw her to travel and experience all types of people and places. Her travels would in evitably impact her music; since her music is the landscape of all she's seen, her music evokes the sound of city grit and the mountain music of her youth, swirling into a fresh, nostalgic sound.
