Becca Mancari is rewriting the rules. Born in Staten Island, New York, to an Italian-Irish preacher and a Puerto Rican mother, Becca 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 roots where she could evolve personally and musically to a seasoned artist beyond her years. Her debut album, "Good Woman," is hauntingly lonesome, with dust- cloud swells of electric guitar and don't-look-back lyrics revealing scenes from her well-travelled story. As a gay woman in the south, Becca has had to face her own set of divisions and has fought hard to reconcile her spiritual beliefs with her sexuality. Though she’s faced her own struggles, she has only emerged stronger.
