Rebecca cut her musical teeth on show tunes and vaudeville as a young child in the late 50s and early 60s. Her first LP was a 78, which her Grandmother bought for her after a birthday dinner in Seattle, Wa. at 'Steve's Gay 90s. At the age of 4, she witnessed Barber Shop Quartets of banjo and ukulele-playing, pinstriped suit-wearing men with straw hats singing impeccable harmonies. The record was a 78rpm of Sophie Tucker, which Rebecca still owns.
Rebecca's music career began in 1975 with her first band, "Mother Country" - a bluegrass, country band based in North Carolina. In 1978 she played in a 4-piece swing band (un-creatively) named "Rebecca & Friends." Mid 1981 she and co-writer Keith Guile put together "Rebecca & the Hi-Tones," still a North Carolina institution after 30 years. The Hi-Tones are a 7-piece swing/jazz/r&b band containing the "core four" members from 1981.
Rebecca has been commissioned by National Public Radio to write and produce feature music for "All Things Considered," and was mentored by Tony Award winning playwright Jim Wann (Diamond Studs, Pump Boys & Dinettes). Rebecca composed the music for "Napoleon's China ©", a play with music, which premiered at Salt Lake Acting Co. and also composed the book for the musical "At Home with Carson Taylor," by playwright Jon Courie. For well over a decade Rebecca performed as half the famous duo 'Pinky Wyoming and Duke LaCrosse' (Jim Watson, founding member of the 'Red Clay Ramblers' and current member of 'The Original Red Clay Ramblers." Jim plays bass with Sugar Hill Recording Artists Robin and Linda Williams). Rebecca has worked in the studio with national and regional recording artists and continues to perform regionally. She is totally devoted to her Cane Corsos, her custom Martin HD-40, her Gibson ES-135, her 1913 Gibson H2 Mandola, her Taylor DDSM, her ukelele, her Engelhardt bass, and her Crafter 12 string - in that order. She has various other instruments but no clue who's using them or what's happened to them.
