Without question, the best part of this SEA AND BE SCENE adventure has been the people you meet along the way – and as luck would have it – way back in 2013 when we were on Prince Edward Island to film our Holiday Special which included a stop into the Charlottetown Christmas Market only to discover the loveliest voices of Rachel and Amy Beck. In the years that followed we loved covering their musical releases and catching up to them whenever we could – so fast forward to 2018 when Rachel Beck releases her self-titled debut solo CD – that has since gone on to win multiple awards and have the very first single “Reckless Heart” sit in the #1 position for six weeks straight. Now as we’ll discover she’s busy recording her sophomore solo project and about to hit the road with fellow Islanders the Atlantic String Machine for a tour of Atlantic Canada including a stop just down the shore from our CoveFM studios at the Chester Playhouse, Friday, November 8th. So we’ll talk about all of that and so much more including her mega-talented producer Daniel Ledwell, her truly chilly video for “Hearts on Fire” and how listening closely to the lyrics of an 80’s dance smash moved her to record a surprisingly moving version. Plus we’ll get to First Things First, play a fun round of INsights IN 10 and naturally play as much of her marvellous music as we can squeeze into the hour – so now without further ado – here’s my conversion with the one and only Rachel Beck.
