Rebecca Roux is a rising star

Sooke Coffee House performance scheduled for Oct. 20

This Saturday, Oct. 20, the Sooke Folk Music Society is pleased to be presenting singer/songwriter, Rebecca Boux, a rising star on the Victoria music scene. Rebecca has graced our open stage in the past and last year was one of four songwriters at our “Songwriters Circle” performance.

When she was only 10 years old, her dad (Kim Boux) created the very first “Motormouth Studio” and that is where she began recording her first songs. With just a Casio keyboard playing behind her, she started the journey she is now on. Since then, the studio has grown with her and has followed her the whole way. But now she is in search of something bigger than she can achieve in Sidney. She wants to sing for the world, and live in music. It’s her dream, and she plans to make it happen. She had numerous people helping her along the way, from guest musicians (Chris Palmer, Jordan Diandra-Harvey, Sunny Shams) playing on her tracks, to the feedback she’s received from talented, successful artists (Jessie Farrell, Morry Stearns) not to mention family, friends and teachers. She has performed at markets, art fairs and summer festivals and has garnered local press for her performances. She was a contestant and semi-finalist in the RE/MAX Island Star Search 2011 and her song Time Traveler from her independent album One Day available on iTunes, was nominated for Song of The Year at the  2012 Vancouver Island Music Awards.  She also participated on a collaborative album to benefit the local food bank, plus multiple shows and concerts at the Mary Winspear Centre and the Butchart Gardens, to promote the CD release, Feed the Soul Vol. 2 Second Helping.

 

She is now in the midst of forming a group of backup musicians and is raising funds to record her first fully produced, professional album.

Rebecca sums up her love for music this way, “I love doing,  making music, using what has been given to me to make people happy, deliver the Lord’s messages, communicate and express myself. It’s an amazing feeling, seeing people enjoy what you do, and knowing that you can make another person smile just by doing what you love. It’s something so simple, and un-superficial, and I hope I can do that for the rest of my life.”

Please join us this Saturday, Oct. 20 for an evening of fine music from this talented lady. The location is Holy Trinity Anglican Church.

Doors open at 7 p.m. with the open stage at 7:30 and our feature at 8.
