Becky Kessler's sound is moody and low, electric, resonant, and influenced by a combination of folks like Jeff Buckley, Elliott Smith, Morphine, Chris Whitley, Tom Waits and Nina Simone. When it comes to the writing process, Kessler tends to begin with the chords. "The process is different with each song, but I would say that the music part comes first," she says. "Lyrics come next and some tunes never quite make it that far, because for me, that part takes more time and by then I've moved on to other tunes."
Becky Kessler was named the "Best Singer-Songwriter" in Connecticut in the Advocate/Weekly's Grand Band Slam 2012. See her winner page on CT.com.
