Rebecca Kane – Introduction
Hello all Cool Grrrls!
My name is Rebecca Kane and I am an artist on many levels. Music is near and dear to my heart, so when I saw this opportunity to write a blog on female musicians, it is a dream come true.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I currently live in Raleigh, North Carolina, although I am originally from a small town called Qualicum Beach, on Vancouver Island, Canada. Being raised on an island left one to their own devices, mainly because there was nothing to do for miles around. I submersed myself in singing and writing. I used to love walking to the beach and I’d make up songs along the way, then sing to the ocean once I got there. My mother had an old manual typewriter that she let me use, and I would pretend I was a writer, plunking my little heart out with the stroke of each letter.
As I got older, I still continued writing and became fascinated by people like Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Chrissie Hynde, and Annie Lennox. I wanted to be like those women, and so I started to focus on writing songs instead of stories. I didn’t play an instrument, and finding someone to create a song around my melody was proving to be difficult.
I knew I had to learn to play an instrument if I was ever going to give a life to these songs. I bought myself an acoustic guitar and taught myself to play. It was frustrating at first, however I was determined to rock out and leave my imprint on the world. I wrote a couple songs and played them at open mic. I listened to the critiques that other artists gave me and before I knew it, I had my very own band, and that opened many doors for me.
To this day, I can say I am an accomplished musician, writer, photographer, singer and artist. My idea is to spread love throughout the internet through this monthly blog. I want to use all my talents, squish them together, and who knows what next month will bring… so stay tuned, my Pretties!!!
