You may, or may not, have heard of me. I'm Rebecca Newman. A little soprano currently based in York, beavering away on my next album..
I saw a thread for Mary-Jess so I just wanted to let people know that I've been in touch with her a fair bit recently with regards to potential songs for my next album (due out in Sep 2013) and the possibility of collaborating with her on future writing.
I have to say she is an absolute delight! Such a friendly, kind and down to earth girl and I, too, am excited to hear her next album after buying Shine.
I think Mary-Jess has been pretty underrated so far, possibly due to lack promotion with Shine, but I hope we will see much more from this talented, accessible soprano in the near future.
Mary-Jess Leaverland Hello everyone, I'm very sorry about this disappointing news, Rebecca and I are talking at the moment about how we can arrange a concert together in the future. I would love to perform with Rebecca as she is so talented and I had such a lovely time singing with her for her album! Which I can't wait to hear! Hopefully some good news will be announced soon... xXx
If you read on, you will of course find that it is Rebecca's album at Number 1, a fantastic achievement for an independent artist. Rebecca's duet with Mary-Jess is indeed a delight for the ears, as is the whole album.
