Born in Gothenburg to a Swedish mother and an American father, Rebecka grew up by the pine forests and lakes of southern Sweden. She wrote songs and poetry from the age of five, and eventually started playing flute and guitar. She left Sweden to study music in Devon, England in 1998, and spent three years in Dartington, studying, composing her songs and jamming with her fellow students. After her graduation, Rebecka went on to work as a musician for Wren, a community arts charity. She chose to stay in Devon, where she still lives, leading choirs, giving singing tuition, and performing. In 2003, Rebecka recorded the CD album Water Carvings, produced by MaJiKer. It was made in memory of her late husband Tom, a gentle and much-loved young man who died in cancer earlier that year. Rebecka released the new album Untold in 2008. Reviewers say: \'Crammed with beguiling, lovely self-penned songs...Heartfelt and haunting in equal measure\' -BBC music \'A spell-bindingly beautiful offering\'...\'The new album features her pure crystal clear vocals, a sort of Anglicised cross between Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, and some stunningly subtle acoustic performances from the musicians\' - The Herald \'It just touches you...\' \'Beautiful, absolutely beautiful\' \'You\'ve lived up to everything everybody\'s told me...\'\'I just absolutely love this\' - Judi Spiers, on the Judi Spiers Radio Show As a Performer... In concert, Rosa Rebecka's haunting and intimate songs are alternated with traditional music; Swedish heartrending love songs and joyous \'polskas\', her powerful voice a capella, accompanied by her guitar or soaring over the lingering note of the Tibetan singing bowl. She links the songs together through flute tunes and stories, adding yet another texture to the experience.
