Music

Press


"A solid glimpse into the hearts of very woman." - Country Standard Time


"This one is full of lush harmonies, great acoustic music and a lot of sass and attitude. It's sweet one minute, an then rebellious and smart the next." - High Plains Radio


"Equally impressive doing tender and tough songs, while expressing love, anger, regret or remorse." - Nashville City Paper


"...songs that are at once literate and emotional and harmonies that strike just the right note of connection and invention while staying spare and serving the music." - Dirty Linen Magazine


"Folsom shines on the mellow almost spiritual ballads, a cross between Joni Mitchell's lush soul searching folk jazz and the Cranberries mystic pop." - Daily Camera


"Rebecca delivered an award winning performance...." - BBC Radio and Television, Belfast Ireland


"When Folsom busts her chops the word 'impressive' should be bantered about. She moves effortlessly and subtly through a seamless blend of genres." - Daily Camera


"She takes you from subtle ballads to knock-you-to-your-knees blues." - KUNC Radio


"Rebecca Folsom is a sultry vocalist" - Denver Post


"Her songs hit like little earthquakes, Rebecca shares a blues bent and a vocal prowess of Susan Tedeschi." - Westword Magazine

Bio

Rebecca Folsom has brought her music to Folk Alliance for a number of years as part of the dynamic duo The Rhythm Angels. In 2013, she released her 10th CD featuring such stellar artists as Tim O'Brien, Nick Forster, John Magnie, and Richie Furay. In live performances, she performs with 2012 Grammy-nominated artist, Mark Oblinger, as they combine their talents to provide achingly beautiful lyrics and funky New Orleans Grooves.

Westword Magazine says, "Her songs hit like little earthquakes." She and Mark perform a delicious blend of Front porch instrumentals, intimate vocals, soaring harmonies, inspiring tales of human heartbreak, redemption, and liberation, mixed to sweet and spicy perfection.

Rebecca brings both a pure vocal quality reminiscent of old Appalachia and a blues prowess. Mark Oblinger provides toe-tapping Southern grooves and fun background vocals that lift you up for a truly unique and captivating musical ride! Together their shared accomplishments are many, and include: Nashville Songwriters, a Grammy nomination, topping the Roots/Americana and College radio charts and international venues, voted best of BBC Television and Radio, to name a few.

Together they have been professional singer-songwriters and touring musicians for over 20 years. In 2013, Rebecca released her 10th CD, Reunion, a stunning tri-medium combination of music, art and poetry that Boulder Magazine describes as "achingly beautiful." A true Renaissance woman, along with being a songwriter and touring musician, she has published two books of poetry and has a BFA in Fine Arts focused in painting and drawing.

She has been teaching Songwriting and the Art of Vocal Freedom workshops for over 18 years. Through her extensive collective artistic experience she enjoys inspiring others to shine as individuals and community members, move into authentic expression and action, and find enjoyment as they explore the masterpiece of their lives.
