SongVault Artist Profile
California, United States
Folk Rock / Adult Alternative
Long time L.A. club scene artist Becky Bishop emerges from the studio with her first ever self-produced album "Shapeshifting". Truly a labor of love, this album has been a long time in the making and features many of LA's A-list musicians as well as the tasty co-production work of Carlos Calvo and Irvin "Magic" Kramer. Over the years Bishop has re-invented her musical style a number of times, but has now come full circle with a stunning collection of original songs with a roots-rock edge covering everything from folk to rock and blues.
Shapeshifting is Bishop's journey of American Music drawing from influences of her personal music heroes such as Fleetwood Mac, The Pretenders, Rockpile and Emmylou Harris. Her versatile rich alto voice covers a wide range of feelings from vulnerable sensitivity to earthy and sassy drawing similar comparisons to Marianne Faithful, Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin and Sheryl Crow.
Bishop has taken the long way around and has gone in through the back door covering many a musical detour from a folkie and country rock earth mama to cow punker, hard rock diva and even Celtic traditionalist, but always with strong pop sensibilities. Shapeshifting is an album of clever and moving songwriting, remarkable vocals and musicianship sure to please a very broad market.
