Bio

Rebecca Folsom has been described by the Denver Post as a "sultry vocalist." Westword Magazine writes, "Like Susan Tedeschi, Folsom shares a blues bent and vocal prowess." "Her songs hit like little earthquakes." 

Her music takes you from exquisite ballads to uplifting acoustic rock grooves -- taking full advantage of her near-four octave vocal range! KUNC Radio says "Rebecca and her band effortlessly take you from the most tender of ballads to knock-you-to-your-knees blues."

Rebecca’s song “Girls Like Us” charted at number 4 on the national Folk/DJ chart and top 40 on Roots/Americana and College radio. 

Her 10th and latest CD, Reunion, is a fusion of songs, paintings, and poetry that rushed forth after a two-year period requiring her to go deep into the realm of  shadows and healing. Boulder Magazine describes as “achingly beautiful.” Joined by such stellar artists as Tim O'Brien, Nick Forster, John Magnie, and Richie Furay in the recordings, she returned with creative treasures, each an elixir holding the promise of liberation. Rebecca has come back full circle, masterfully reflecting the trinity of her life’s work as a singer/songwriter, an artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree, and an author with two published books of poetry. 

Throughout her 20+ year career, she has performed on BBC radio and television in Northern Ireland, Nashville’s Bluebird, Opryland, and Tin Pan South stages, New York’s Bitterend and Falcon Ridge Music Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, and Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Folks Festival and Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Rebecca muses: "Of all things, it is live performance I love the most. My aim is to awaken and uplift people, It is important to look at the realities going on in the world today, socially and politically, but it is equally of value to laugh and spread comfort and joy. There is nothing more exciting than elevating live performance with the unpredictable spark of the moment.”"
