With her debut EP Sing You Through The Storm (April 2012) garnering support on UK radio (BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio, Q Radio and more), Spanish national radio (RTVE Radio Tres,) on influential blogs (The 405, The VPME, The Girls Are, God Is In The TV and more), and as a New Blood featured artist in Artrocker Magazine, Rebekah Delgado prepares to launch her debut solo album.
Entitled Don’t Sleep – it will be released on 15th October through Four In The Morning Records, supported by the Menage A Moi EP one week earlier. Recorded in a bedroom studio but lacking that bedroom studio feel, Don’t Sleep opens with the nightmarish Little Boy Blue (which led 6 Music's Tom Robinson to declare Rebekah to be “a female Nick Cave”) and sets the scene for a dark yet eclectic album, tinged with a brooding disquiet borne of Rebekah’s chronic insomnia. Its contrite opening wreathes through to the cheeky pop of Menage A Moi by way of the uplifting and hopeful Sing You Through The Storm and the quixotic The Hunger That Never Sleeps.
After previously fronting two successful bands who enjoyed national press and radio success in the UK, Spain and Italy and toured the US, Rebekah embarked on a solo career in 2010 when her previous band, The Last Army broke up. When playing live Rebekah is often accompanied by a variety of other musicians, including musical saw, violin, harmonium, trumpet, cello and drums - as well as the now infamous Drunk Choir.
