Darts, Dire Straits, and The Voice: Rebecca Loebe

This week on The Music Room, we spoke with Texas singer and songwriter Rebecca Loebe about her newest album, “Blink.” Rebecca was inspired by mix tapes and, oddly enough, the IRS while writing the album. Regarding mix tapes, Rebecca told us about how powerful she thinks songs can be, and that their ability to transport us to different periods of time in our lives. With the IRS, Rebecca discussed how distracting herself from  preparing for an audit motivated her to write many tracks on “Blink.”

Aside from the album, Rebecca also briefly discussed her time on NBC’s first season of The Voice. During the blind audition, her cover of “Come As You Are” landed her a spot on Adam Levine’s team. Although Rebecca did not win, her audition song remained one of the top-selling singles of that season and gained iTunes popularity worldwide.
