Beccy Cole + Libby O’Donovan

Country songstress Beccy Cole has delighted Australian listeners and concert goers for more than twenty years. The Adelaide-born star’s glowing warmth, honeyed voice, bawdy sense of humour and perpetual smile have helped make Beccy one of the nation’s best-loved and most celebrated artists. With her stunning tenth release Sweet Rebecca, Beccy colours these winning qualities with bittersweet remembrance and reflection on her life thus far – both onstage and off.

With nine Golden Guitars to her name (including four for Female Vocalist of the Year), as well as multiple ARIA Top 10 Country and Top 40 Mainstream albums, a Top 10 DVD, three gold certified releases, and more than a dozen No. 1 Australian country singles, Beccy Cole is one of Australia’s most successful singer-songwriters.

Since 1997, Beccy has piloted a succession of stellar releases, including most recent ARIA nominated studio effort Songs and Pictures (2011), featuring the Golden Guitar-winning hits ‘Waitress’ and ‘Millionaires’ (with Kasey Chambers). Sweet Rebecca follows hot on the heels of Beccy’s phenomenal collaboration with Melinda Schneider, Great Women of Country (2014).
As the title promises, Sweet Rebecca is the most personal album of Beccy’s career. The release coincides with the publication of Beccy’s strikingly candid memoir, Poster Girl. It was the frequently gruelling task of penning this tell-all account of her life and career to date that inspired the intensely, grippingly honest songs of Sweet Rebecca.

A stunningly personal release veined with humour, Sweet Rebecca brims with striking, sometimes painful honesty. Above all, it reveals that, after ten albums, two decades, and countless trials along the way, Beccy Cole remains undimmed in her commitment to friends, family, and Australia’s everyday heroes. Sweet Rebecca is a breathtaking showcase of heart-on-sleeve song writing, softened by Beccy Cole’s unwavering warmth, grace, and eternal, nourishing smile.
