About Becca Mancari
A singer and songwriter whose music puts a fresh spin on classic folk-rock tropes while adding an indie rock undertow, Becca Mancari was born in Staten Island, New York to an Irish-Italian father who was a man of the cloth and a mother of Puerto Rican heritage. As a girl, Becca read the works of Jack London and Mark Twain, which gave her a taste for adventure at an early age. Mancari led a nomadic life in her teens and twenties, as she worked odd jobs in Florida, ran with a gang of modern-day hobos hopping freight trains across the country, followed her first true love to Arizona, and visited India on a spiritual pilgrimage. After a spell in Virginia, Mancari settled down in Nashville, Tennessee, where she began focusing on her musical career, believing that the town's competitive nature would force her to work hard on her songs. Mancari began playing out regularly in Music City, and she grew an audience for her rootsy, deeply personal tunes. In 2015 Mancari released her first single, "Summertime Mama," and her touring extended throughout the South and Southwest. Mancari's profile got a boost in July 2017 when she joined the group Bermuda Triangle, which also featured Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes and singer/songwriter Jesse Lafser. In October 2017 Mancari released her first album, Good Woman, which was produced by Kyle Ryan, best known for his work with Kacey Musgraves.
