Beccy Cole (Wintersun Hotel)
Country songstress Beccy Cole has delighted Australian listeners and concert goers for more than twenty years. The Adelaide-born star's glowing warmth, honeyed voice, bawdy sense of humour and perpetual smile have helped make Beccy one of the nation's best-loved and most celebrated artists. With her stunning tenth release Sweet Rebecca, Beccy colours these winning qualities with bittersweet remembrance and reflection on her life thus far - both onstage and off.
With nine Golden Guitars to her name (including four for Female Vocalist of the Year), as well as multiple ARIA Top 10 Country and Top 40 Mainstream albums, a Top 10 DVD, three gold certified releases, and more than a dozen No. 1 Australian country singles, Beccy Cole is one of Australia's most successful singer-songwriters.
Since 1997, Beccy has piloted a succession of stellar releases, including most recent ARIA nominated studio effort Songs and Pictures (2011), featuring the Golden Guitar-winning hits 'Waitress' and 'Millionaires' (with Kasey Chambers). Sweet Rebecca follows hot on the heels of Beccy's phenomenal collaboration with Melinda Schneider, Great Women of Country (2014).
As the title promises, Sweet Rebecca is the most personal album of Beccy's career. The release coincides with the publication of Beccy's strikingly candid memoir, Poster Girl. It was the frequently gruelling task of penning this tell-all account of her life and career to date that inspired the intensely, grippingly honest songs of Sweet Rebecca.
"For me, every time I write songs it's a very cathartic experience, because I write about my life," Beccy says. "I think the more honest you are, the better the song is going to be. After I wrote the book, I was ready to write songs - or at least ready to write some words that rhymed!"
As Beccy's remarkable story demonstrates, the truest measure of a life well-lived lies not in personal achievement, but in the people who choose to come along for the ride. Sweet Rebecca is a dedication to the people who have made Beccy the treasured artist she is today: from her musical parents Carole and Jeff, to faithful friends, colleagues, and confidants met along the way.
