Rebecca Everett Bio
FilmTV and Songwriting Highlights
Composition and Bespoke songs for Film
“This indie-rock noir goddess has entranced me with her beguiling sounds. Mix a little rockabilly with Portishead and The Doors and add a female singer with some serious moxie.”
A Little Bit of Sol
Rebecca is currently composing and recording for TV, film, theatre, records and performing in Toronto and internationally
Victoria bred and Toronto-based musical artist Rebecca Everett has a keen melodic sense, which is ideal for a working songwriter and composer. Bespoke songs crafted for scenes in film along with her orchestral background and cinematic feel is a perfect match for her songwriting and composition sensibility
Since her relocation to Toronto she’s been busy co-writing and was an in-house writer for OLE. She collaborated with many different writers in Canada, the US and Europe. Some highlights are the radio single ‘I Remember’ on Shiloh’s JUNO nominated album ‘Picture Imperfect’ and a song on Jimmy Rankin’s, Forget About the World (JUNO nomination). Rebecca’s songs have turned up on TV with placements on Katy Keene, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Lost Girl, CH Live, CBC and Next Star and on many upcoming film releases
Her most recent award was being granted a Residency with the Slaight Music Residency at the prestigious Canadian Film Centre for 2016 - 2017. The residency was a micro-lab of songwriting and composing for films by Canada's top, upcoming directors, producers and writers
"Rebecca Everett is a proven songwriter with a unique talent to sing and deliver a performance that captivates and penetrates the heart and soul of life"
- Roman Klun (Sarah McLaughlin, Levon Helm, Ornette Coleman)
Rebecca recently released her third swampy rock n roll EP, Seven Shades to numerous, glowing reviews. FACTOR also appreciated the album and provided financial support for Rebecca Everett and the Dead Ringers to travel to SXSW in Austin, TX and perform
iSpy – another Rebecca Everett project, received a recording grant from FACTOR for a short film showcasing their original work. Rebecca is the singer and songwriter for this playful, 5 piece vintage swing, jazz-manouche inspired band. iSpy has residencies at the Cameron House and Castro's Lounge and plays frequently in and around Toronto
Rebecca's eclectic experience as professional violinist, singer and multi-instrumentalist has brought a rich tapestry of sound in a diaspora of genres to her songwriting and compositions
