Rebecca Lappa

Genres: Indie / Pop

Rebecca Lappa is an Edmonton singer-songwriter, who delivers alternative music with folk undertones thru a pop vein. Just signed to Tonic Records, Lappa will release a new album “Tales of a Taurus”, funded by her second FACTOR Juried Sound Recording grant, in fall 2023. This venture into Indie Pop reflects Lappa’s growth as a writer and willingness to take sonic risks. Her story based compositions, emotive vocal delivery, and image filled lyrics captured Lappa three 2019 Edmonton Music Awards nominations, winning Singer Songwriter Recording of the Year. She’s a Canadian Folk Music Awards winner, who has not only won 1st place 3 times in the Calgary Folkfest Songwriting contest but also won the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta’s Spirit of Vimy contest and the Adult Alternative Recording of the Year at the 2015 Edmonton Music Awards. Lappa has toured Canada and entranced audiences at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival (2014, 2018), Rogue Arts Festival (2018), Calgary Folk Festival (2013, 2015), Canmore Folk Festival (2014) the Ottawa Blues Festival (2016, 2017), Alberta House during two Grey Cup (2010, 2018), Edmonton Rock Festival (2019) and Seven Music Fest (2018). Lappa is honoured to have opened for The Crash Test Dummies, Jenn Grant, Digging Roots, Basia Bulat, Reignwolf, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Maria Dunn, Amy Bishop, Mike Plume, Lissie and Leeroy Stagger. Lappa is a star on the rise, with her electric live performances, 20K social media followers and charting nationally on campus radio. With powerful vocals and honest stories, Lappa is an emerging Canadian talent who is clearly “one to watch”.   Lappa graduated from MacEwan University with a Composition Diploma in 2017 and attended Canada’s Music Incubator with the Bell Media Prize in 2018. Since Fall 2020, Lappa has studied Music Therapy at Capilano University in BC and is currently doing her Music Therapy Internship at the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary.
