Becky Lawrence has been performing for the majority of her life: from having the lead role of Kim in the European Premiere of ‘Miss Saigon’ to singing the Manx National Anthem for the opening of the Island Commonwealth Games back on the Isle of Man where she called home. Music and singing have always been her true passion.
Her upbringing was surrounded by an eclectic mix of music, where she could be found listening to bands such as AC/DC and Alice Copper with her dad, or Genesis and The Carpenters with her mum, even a bit of classical music!
Becky left the Isle of Man and headed for the bright lights of London and gained a place at the prestigious London School of Musical Theatre where she gained a Diploma in Musical Theatre, however, this ultimately wasn't the path that was destined for her.
Becky has always been drawn to words, poetry and lyrics and eventually started to experiment with writing lyrics herself. It was then she started to listen even more to country music, focusing on the words of Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris & Reba McEntire. She discovered that this genre just seemed to encompass more passion than any other music she has listened too and it was then her own lyrics seemed to just fit with this genre.
Since moving to the south-west of England, Becky started working with a platinum-selling producer in Bristol and a fantastic sound engineer at Phoenix Studios, resulting in her first EP
'A Child's Tears'. As well as gigging with her own music, co-writing with Indie Folk singer/songwriter Amie K, Becky could also be found singing backing vocals for Clyve & The Soul City Foundation in Bath and The Bourbons.
After the release of her second EP 'What It Takes' co-written with Danny McMahon, its been a whirlwind of writing and gigs, with her most recent gigs being at The Queens Head in Box, co-headlining with Amie K, Rock and Ribs Fest, Watchet Festival & The Bristol Fringe.
