Prolific Canadian singer-songwriter Rebecca Lappa returns with new indie-pop anthem ‘Blue Lips’, and announces her new EP ‘Tales of a Taurus’.
Making music since the age of twelve in her native home of Edmonton, Alberta, Rebecca Lappa released six albums in quick succession between 2011 and 2016, winning over fans and critics alike, and has been nominated five times for the prestigious Canadian Folk Music Awards.
Now Rebecca starts a new chapter, departing from the acoustic folk/rock that has distinguished her music so far, and boldly leaning into a new pop sound with her new EP ‘Tales of a Taurus’ (out May 2023). The first glimpse of it is provided with lead single 'Blue Lips' - a captivating look into a ‘romantic with a hint of manic’ relationship, complete with addictive chorus, understated guitars and barely-there synths.
Speaking candidly about the single, Rebecca explained, “Taking you into a world of frozen hearts and blinding snow, 'Blue Lips' is a uniquely Canadian story about a friends-with-benefits relationship, combining heartache and excitement together like fire and ice. The winter imagery throughout the song brings forward the harsh realities of a situation where one partner is hoping the relationship will turn into more than it is.”
Rebecca’s forthcoming six-track EP ‘Tales of a Taurus’ is out this May on the Tonic/Fontana label.
Born in San Francisco but raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Rebecca has been singing since childhood and plays multiple instruments. After watching Taylor Swift open for Brad Paisley, she decided “That’s like me. I want to do that.”
Rebecca subsequently went on to be nominated five times for the Canadian Folk Music Awards, winning young Performer of the Year in 2015. In 2019, Rebecca was nominated for three titles at the Edmonton Music Awards, taking home the win for Singer-Songwriter Recording of the Year. Among her previous releases are 2016’s 'Reckless Heart', 2017’s 'Spirit' EP and 2019’s 'Unfiltered' EP.
