Direct-To-Vinyl Live Session #344: Rebecca Haviland
We were thrilled to welcome Rebecca Haviland to Direct-To-Vinyl Office Sessions on June 11th, 2018. Rebecca's session was available via preorder, which has now closed.
Each of these 14 takes were cut directly to their own individual 7" vinyl record, and only one copy of each take exists in the world.
Our limited edition lathe cut record releases are made on a modified antique record cutting lathe from the 1950's. Each record is handmade, one at a time, in real time, by a real person.
Rebecca Haviland is a Grammy awarding winning vocalist and multi- instrumentalist with extensive songwriting, performance & touring experience. She recently completed a year playing keyboards and guitar for multi-platinum selling pop artist Rachel Platten, which included television performances on Ellen and Good Morning America with performances across North America, Europe, Australia and Japan. Rebecca, the granddaughter of jazz musicians, got her start at a young age when her father started sneaking her into bars when she was 13 to sit in with her uncle's band.
Her own band, Rebecca Haviland and Whiskey Heart, includes members Chris Anderson (Martin Sexton), Todd Caldwell (C S & N) & Kenny Shaw (Dispatch). They have performed in support of Roberta Flack, James McCartney, Rick Springfield, Martin Sexton and Chris Young. Their first album, released in 2012, received awards in the International Songwriting Competition and Unsigned Only Competition. Rebecca was also voted in Aquarian Weekly as one of the Top 10 must see bands of 2014.
Rebecca recently finished recording a new album with producer Don DiLego (Jesse Malin, Hollis Brown) at Atomic Sound in Brooklyn, which reflect Rebecca’s experiences on the road encompassing American roots music. The first single from those sessions “Bright City Lights” was released on November 15th 2017, with an album to follow in early 2018.
