    Jazz

    Always reaching, always expanding, Becca Stevens reinvents herself once again with Regina. In the years since the release of her critically acclaimed third album, Perfect Animal, Stevens has undertaken a journey that began with a study of Queen Elizabeth I as inspiration for a commission to write a concert of new music, which expanded into tributes to various queens from history, literature, folklore, and her own imagination, songs inspired by the regal and divine, and finally Regina as a voice, like a trusted friend or an alter ego.

    As for her muse for the album, Stevens explains, “Regina is like an alter ego, or an imaginary friend. Like a dream, she exists separate from me but is reliant upon my consciousness to exist. I carry her with me in everything now. So I guess you could say that neither ends; in Becca, there is always Regina, and in Regina, there is always Becca.”

    Produced by Troy MillerRegina features creative and performance collaborations with Snarky Puppy’s Michael League, Jacob Collier, Laura Mvula, and the legendary David Crosby. The album was recorded in several phases – in London with Miller, a second London session with Collier (a co-producer on the album along with Stevens and League), a session with Miller in Brooklyn, NY, a session with League in Brooklyn and a final session with League and Stevens’ bandmates in Brooklyn as well. Additional collaborators include Alan Hampton, Jo Lawry and the award-winning Attacca String Quartet as well as Stevens’ trusted band members Liam Robinson, Chris Tordini, and Jordan Perlson (performing here).

    The New York Times, describes Stevens as ‘a best-kept secret’ and ‘impressively absorbing’. She has recently featured on Snarky Puppy’s new Family Dinner Volume 2 as well as collaborating with various artists such as Esperanza Spalding, Brad Mehldau, Jose James, and recently on David Crosby’s new tour Lighthouse.

    Stevens style has always evaded categorization, and with Regina, even more so. One hears pop, rock, R&B and funk side-by-side with traditional Appalachian and British folk, classical, world music, and jazz. Intricate instrumentation and rhythms seamlessly intertwine with vocals and melodies that work their way into your brain. Stevens has been compared to Bjork, St Vincent, Tori Amos and Joni Mitchell and is certainly making her mark on the international music scene in a big way, establishing herself as a long term and important artist for the future.

    Tonye Aganaba

    Pop

    Tonye is a singer-songwriter born in London England to an a Nigerian father and a Zimbabwean  mother. She moved to Canada in her teens and started a career in music at 17. Her style can be described as Soul/ Neo-Folk/ Hiphop. She has been likened to folks like Lauryn Hill, Ani Difranco and Sia. She is a Much More Music Video Award recipient, social justice advocate and the kind of singer/performer that turns heads wherever she plays. 

    In 2015 her trajectory was interrupted by a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. Her career was put on hold at a time where she was starting to gain real momentum. She had signed a label and management deal, completed a record and was about to embark on a worldwide tour to support the release of her CD. Shortly after receiving the diagnosis she was also in a car accident where she fractured her spine in 6 different places. Her dreams and plans were waylaid as she was bedridden and isolated for months. 

    For the past 2 years Tonye has been working on healing and finding herself again. A new Phoenix-like person is emerging from the proverbial ashes. She now calls MS the best thing that ever happened to her. It was a wake up call. It has offered her a new lease on life and more importantly, a new perspective. She now has a new career trajectory. One that involves connecting deeper with her audience and that sees her creating a new community for herself. She's not only interested in taking her music to the traditional venues but also into schools, community centers, hospitals and generally places where her music can heal, connect and make a difference. 

    In many ways she's starting over again with the scars to show and a repertoire of songs that are bound to draw the listener in and bond with them. She plans to release new music in 2018 and is ready to start touring again. She hopes you can be part of her new journey.
