Originally the lead singer for the British folk rock/pop band Ruby Blue, Pidgeon, known for her dark lyrics and bright vocals, has been touted by Rolling Stone Magazine as “one of those rare singers who convey emotion purely…” and in an interview with the Wall Street Journal’s wsj.com talks about her approach to songwriting.
Her solo recording career commenced in 1994 with the release of her solo debut album The Raven. Her last release Slingshot (in 2012) was her sixth solo effort, and she considered it a creative breakthrough. “I reached a point where I felt I had to take my singing more seriously and really make a 100% commitment to it, instead of saying this is something I do that’s not acting,” Pidgeon, said at the time. “I finally said to myself, ‘I am a singer.’”
Slingshot garnered a Grammy nomination and had her performing at Farm Aid alongside Neil Young, Dave Matthews, Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp and headlining the Wine, Women & Song Concert Series. In the past year, Rebecca has toured with noted artists Marc Cohn and Keb Mo and shared the stage with Aimee Mann, Madeleine Peyroux, Stephen Kellogg ,Rusted Root and Jeffrey Gaines, to name a few.
The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts graduate continues to juggle her musical and extremely successful acting careers. She has been featured in several films including “Red,” alongside Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman and most recently appeared in the HBO biopic Phil Spector alongside Al Pacino and Helen Mirren. The film featured Rebecca’s version of the Spector penned “Spanish Harlem” and has been nominated for a 2013 Emmy Award.
