Growing up in Wasaga Beach, Canada, 2019 Boots and Hearts Music Festival Emerging Artist Showcase Finalist, Rebecca Rain, now splits her time between her hometown and Nashville writing and recording her debut album. Although considered a new face in Canadian country music, Rebecca is no stranger to the stage, having grown up performing in bars and restaurants in the GTA. Over the past few years, she’s created an industry buzz with her relatable songwriting and soulful country powerhouse vocals, both of which have landed her opening slots for award-winning artists Meghan Patrick, Tim Hicks, James Barker Band, and Canadian Country Music icon, Charlie Major.
Introspective and empowering, Rebecca Rain’s new music embodies a fresh country sound exploring themes of dating, heartbreak, and facing life’s various challenges head-on with strength and determination.
The first single, “I Don’t Take Shit” off Rebecca’s debut album was released on August 26th, 2022 and has since been added on Topsify’s “Complete Country” playlist, as well as landed her opening slots for Beverly Mahood at St.Thomas Summer Harvest Festival 2022 and for Jess Moskaluke on the Barrie, ON Stop of the award- winning country stars “Map Dot Tour”. Simply put, we’ve all met those people who we think might be a good fit, before we notice the red flags and have to decide whether to turn a blind eye or run in the opposite direction. Rebecca wrote this song from channeling her personal experiences of turning a moment of potential heartache into one of liberation and freedom. This empowering female anthem provides that ‘tell it like it is’ feisty sass, mixed with the upbeat confidence of being in control of romantic situations and not settling for any less than you deserve. Rebecca’s relatable lyrics, mixed with her powerful vocals and staying true to herself make this the song we didn’t know we needed, and now have on repeat. Writing this song with critically-acclaimed producer, and friend Doug Romanow, Rebecca sends this song out to “everyone who needs that special reminder to trust their gut and know their worth, ‘cause ‘I Don’t Take Shit’ – and neither should you!”
