Biography

At first glance, Stefi Beck is a unique singer, songwriter, and classically trained guitarist, but that's only scratching the surface. What sets her apart is the way she can capture an audience with her soothing, soulful vocals, or how she can play guitar like it is an extension of her heart and, most importantly, how her songs can tell a story and get it stuck in your head for days.

Her song, “Hums Along” earned Stefi Factor’s Demo Award in 2006. After recording a 3 song demo, Stefi met up with drummer Justin Dillon and bassist Paul McKay to form The Stefi Beck Band, affectionally known by fans as the "SB3” .

In 2008, "SB3" recorded an 8 song EP, including fan favorites "Open Road" and "Can't Go Back". The songs relate to everyday experiences, told in a way that offers comfort, as well as a sing-a-long quality with solid infectious guitar riffs.

Over the last year The Stefi Beck Band has enjoyed performing in various venues around Toronto, including recent gigs at The Sound Academy, The Rivoli, The Cameron House and The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern.

Lyrics

Hums Along

Written By: Stefi Beck

Know a man
He seems tense
He’s walking out on a girl he might miss
He’s waking up to a phone call alarm
As recorded voices tell him “Baby move on”

At the sound of the tone leave a message
You should be here but there’s always no answer
I sit alone with the moan of a slow song
And I hum along

Sunday night
Midnight snack
I pour myself one or two to relax
I’m holding onto this thing in my past
It’s still hurting and lurking won’t get off my back

At the sound of the tone leave a message
You should be here but there’s always no answer
I sit alone with the moan of a slow song
And I hum along

With no one around
It’s your favourite song
It’s that song that you need when you’re feeling low

At the sound of the tone leave a message
You should be here but there’s always no answer
I sit alone with the moan of a slow song
And I hum along

Can't Go Back

Written By: Stefi Beck

My own reflection’s always
Cloudy in my home
My only kiss is always on the way out
I don’t know as far as
Where I’m going
I don’t have a lot ‘round here

You’ll hold a place in my heart
But this time you can’t be there right in my way

That’s why I can’t go back
That’s why I can’t be where you want me
That’s why I only fit
In little places where you can’t come in
You’ll hold a place in my heart
That’s why I can’t go back

My gambling has always been
The only risk I’ve taken
My only chip is being flipped
Outside this box I live in
I don’t know the odds
Of taking over
All I have is not my all

You’ll hold a place in my heart
But this time you can’t be there right in my way

That’s why I can’t go back
That’s why I can’t be where you want me
That’s why I only fit
In little places where you can’t come in
You’ll hold a place in my heart
That’s why I can’t go back

All I had is off my shoulders
I cannot see you

Open Road

Written By: Stefi Beck

Oh please don’t skip me
‘Cuz I made it here
I went back through all of the pages
Still I made it here
Holding onto my patience
Which I held on for way to long
Stay composed or just hit the road or just
Get out on the road and go

Don’t tell me ‘bout those guys
They can hypnotize I know
He has only one try
Not just any guy can go
Is he nice? Got those eyes? Will he drive all night
If he wont be careful
Or just get out on the road and go

I watched life pass me by
So still at times
But fire tends to burn out
Or spread out
I’ll be on the open road til I know

Oh please don’t skip me
By the way I made it here
I went back through all of the pages
But I made it and I’m here
Every cent dime and nickel
All my mind body and soul
Stay composed or just hit the road or just
Get out on the road and go
