Rebecca Perl is a New York born, Los Angeles based artist whose music fuses both honest folk and catchy pop. Raised in a family of musicians, Perl picked up the guitar at just 12 years old, learning her love for music was the best way to articulate all the complexities and riddles that love and life had to offer. With each year, Perl has found a way to create a sound that is both fresh and familiar, while questioning, embellishing and celebrating the most human experiences and connections that rent space in all of our hearts and minds.
Perl’s songwriting often touches on love in all forms – with herself, with others, a night out, a moment in time. “I never run out of things to say when it comes down to it”, she reveals. Her latest single “Blame You” is highly inspired by personal experiences. Perl confides, “When you go through heartbreak, it’s easier to blame the other person than yourself. Nobody wants to take blame for a failed relationship. Sometimes it’s nobody’s fault, and that alone can keep you up at night. At the time, blaming him was the only way I found peace with the situation and it helped me move on.” The stunning song features delicate instrumentation, warm, emotional vocals and soaring soundscapes, creating a cinematic atmosphere, certain to pull at your heartstrings.
Inspired by the likes of Sasha Sloan, Julia Michaels and Maggie Rogers, Perl shares, “I’m very into female pop artists that tell stories and make you feel something.” The songwriter hopes that by sharing her own perspectives, it may help others feel heard and bring clarity to different situations. “We all go through the same things and it’s nice to know that you’re not alone”, she continues.
Perl has seen success having garnered over a million streams for her music to date, selling out Webster Hall and landed opening spots for pop rock artists like Gavin Degraw, Teddy Geiger, Howie Day, Ryan Cabrera, Tyler Hilton, Olivia Newton John and more.
