by Alexa Criscitiello - Feb 8, 2017

BRIC is pleased to welcome acclaimed, Brooklyn-based singer/composer/multi-instrumentalistBecca Stevens to BRIC House on March 30. Always reaching, always expanding, Becca Stevens - whom The New York Times describes as a "best-kept secret" and "impressively absorbing" - reinvents herself once again with her latest album, Regina. In the years since the release of her critically acclaimed third album, Perfect Animal, Stevens has undertaken a journey that began with a study of Queen Elizabeth I as inspiration for a commission to write a concert of new music, which expanded into tributes to various queens from history, literature, folklore and her own imagination. The result is a collection of songs inspired by the regal and divine, and finally Regina as a voice, like a trusted friend or an alter ego.
