Alaskan born singer/songwriter, Rebekah Pulley, broke into the Tampa Bay music scene in 2000. She has since garnered numerous songwriting awards for her soulful blend of Americana and rootsy folk.
Rebekah’s ethereal vocals and poetic lyrics made her a favorite among fans and critics alike. Her latest release Back to Boogaloo landed on numerous best of lists across the country. 3rd Coast Music, declared Back To Boogaloo, “an outstanding album, immensely enjoyable and a master class in DIY” in his 4 star review of the new CD. Tampa Bay’s Creative Loafing says that it is a “beauty and a brilliant folk-rock affair, 4 stars.”
Rebekah has earned five Best of the Bay awards from the readers and editors of Creative Loafing. That publication has described her live singing as “both technically spot-on and emotionally devastating. It can drop your jaw and break your heart”.
Rebekah was raised in a musical household with her nine siblings in rural Alaska. A self taught guitarist, she gained an ear for music by listening to her father practice and perform country western and rockabilly guitar licks with country greats such as Charlie Ryan (with whom he recorded the original version of Hot Rod Lincoln).
Rebekah has enjoyed the last 15 years performing at venues ranging from intimate coffee houses to large festivals. Her natural home is now on stage both solo and with her backing band, The Reluctant Prophets.
Rebekah has recorded 4 full-length CD’s that have permeated American and European airwaves. Each CD contains its own distinctive blend of tough but tender songs reflecting heartache, love, self-discovery and worldly chaos. Her unique combination of skilled songwriting and powerful stage presence has earned Ms. Pulley a place in the hearts and CD players of fans and critics across the nation.
