I am Rebecca. I'm a visual and musical artist, retired, and live in Hawaii. Life is good.

Music production has always fascinated me and I'm thankful that digital audio applications have taken music production out of the expensive studios, transforming anyone's home and imagination into their own expression tool. The DAW I currently use is Logic X. I have an assortment of guitars, an Ensoniq ESQ1 synthesizer, various percussion gizmos, and many sample libraries from EastWest and VirHarmonic. In the last couple of decades I've grown very fond of composing digitally, so mostly what you'll hear here was composed by writing note-by-note, beat-by-beat, in MIDI, using sampled instruments and synthetic sounds.

I grew up hearing the classical composers that my mom liked; Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Chopin, & many others. Mom bought one of the first stereo record players in the late 1950's. It was a Magnavox, 2 cabinet console system with 12" speakers. She wanted to be able to rattle the windows when the cannons fired in Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. Thanks, mom, for showing me that music has a great place in my life.

In rural south Georgia, I played oboe in my elementary school orchestra and clarinet in the marching band. When I was 12, my family moved to Atlanta. I was devastated, at least for a year or so, until I learned how to be a city girl. Turns out that Atlanta was a good place to experience the happenings of the 60s. I remember secretly staying up past my bedtime, in the dark of my room, to catch a progressive new 2 hour radio show that played Hendrix, Procol Harum, The Who, Moody Blues, Deep Purple ... ironically on a popular country radio station in Atlanta. Times, they were a'changing.

After collecting lots of 45s, my first LP was The Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was 1967, I was 15. That same year, my first live concert was Cream, on their first US tour. In 1968 I saw Soft Machine open for Jimi Hendrix. I saw Led Zeppelin in a high school gym in some South Carolina town on their first US tour. I throughly enjoyed the progressive rock scene of the 60s and 70s.

I began playing guitar in my early teens. In the mid 1970s I managed a retail record store in north Atlanta. By 1978 I worked for a major label in their southeast regional sales & promotional office.

In 1986, I started an independent record label, based in Atlanta, that produced Alternative music with national distribution of about 20 artists. In 1994, I sold my Indie label to a larger record company.

Also, in 1986, I moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia and thought that was THE place for 20 years, until I visited Kauai. The banner above is a painting I did of the view from my home in Kauai.
