 Notes & Reviews
2015 sophomore album from the Bay Area singer/songwriter. Bekah Barnett is an operatically trained singer-songwriter who has been captivating audiences for years with her emotionally engaging songs poetic lyrics, soaring melodies, and catchy piano riffs. A refreshing blend of Jazz, Folk, Pop, and Spiritual music, Bekah Barnett's piano-driven tunes and soulful voice have been compared to Tori Amos, Regina Spektor, Fiona Apple, Natalie Merchant, Adele, and Joni Mitchell. Her sophomore full-length album Rise, available both physically and digitally worldwide with it's release on August 21st, 2015, was recorded at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California with local producer and master pianist Julie Wolf (Ani DiFranco, Carly Simon, The Indigo Girls, Dar Williams). A resident producer at Fantasy Studios, Julie was able to tap musicians for the album who have played with some of Bekah's idols such as Ani DiFranco, Natalie Merchant, The Indigo Girls, and Anais Mitchell. Todd Sickafoose contributed his melodic and captivating bass lines to the project. Allison Miller, three-time Jazz Ambassador of the US State Department, created the original drum arrangements and loops. Hans Teuber composed and played horn arrangements for several of the songs, Michael Papenburg visited the studio for a day to lend his considerable talents layering acoustic and electric guitar on several tracks, and Lyris Hung arranged and played violin on many of the tunes. Rise was engineered and mixed by the adept Adam MuNoz (Snarky Puppy, Herbie Hancock, Dave Matthews, and Bill Frisell).
