Although she is fairly new to the world of songwriting, Rebecca proves to have a penchant for writing infectious tunes and relatable narratives. Her newest single “Girls on Fire” was recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN. She worked with producer Bryan Clark (Bonnie Raitt, Kelsea Ballerini, Lisa Loeb) and collaborated with some of Nashville’s finest musicians on this track.

A Listening Room Experience Hermit Woods is excited to bring talented artists from New England and beyond to perform for you. Each performance will provide you with an intimate, up-close, and personal experience with the performing artists. We ask our audience please refrain from talking during the featured show. Your silence will allow the artists and the audience to immerse themselves in the experience, which is not otherwise possible in larger, noisier environments.
