Hi Rebecca, and Welcome to LiveTrigger Magazine!
Please tell our readers who’s Rebecca Jed and where is she based?
I am a hillbilly country style singer songwriter based out of The Ozark Mountains in Arkansas.
I have been nominated twice for Ameripolitan outlaw female.
My focus is on honest real toe tapping country music with deep roots in traditional country.
Tell us a little about what you’ve been up to in 2019?
Relocating back to Arkansas after 13 years in Nashville.
I have been working on my fifth album and will be busy touring Arkansas and Texas this summer.
Where did you get inspiration for your music?
Growing up on a farm in Texas and a ranch in Arkansas.
Rodeo, horse shows and listening to old time music on the square in Mountain View Arkansas had a huge impact on me.
Who are your favourite artists and how did they influence your style & sound?
Rebecca, how much time does it take to create a song?
Depends…sometimes twenty minutes and other times a few days.
What’s the best live music show you’ve seen recently?
Billy Joe Shaver
How do you create music?
It just comes to me in either melody or words.
I play guitar and a little mandolin.
What is your best and your worst memory on the road?
Best – playing to a big wonderful welcoming audience at the Tennessee Muddy Roots festival in 2018
Worst– driving all the way to New Orleans to play a show on a tour and finding out last minute that I wasn’t really welcome to stay at the place I was told I was welcome to stay at. Then having to spend the little money I did make on a hotel.
What do you think about Live trigger?
I truly appreciate folks like y’all that support artists like me because it’s a tuff // yet wonderful path to pursue.
