Rebecca Ireland Sphinx Rock Cafe Sunday

Rebecca Ireland launched her debut album Love and Sticky Tape early in 2011 to a packed audience in Mullumbimby. With the audience dripping out the doors the gig highlighted the respect and admiration of Rebecca from her peers and the local community. There was a warmth from the audience towards Rebecca that cannot be manufactured. The night will long be remembered as one of the many highlights of the local music scene.

Rebecca Ireland’s debut album Love and Sticky Tape is a rhythmic reflection of the artist’s life journey to date, taking the listener to places words often fail to describe. Love and Sticky Tape is as delicate as it is powerful and gutsy. The soul-driven grooves allow the songs movement and colour, with Ireland’s melodic vocals skimming across the waters of folk, rock and funk.

The album was recorded at Lucky Boy Studios with longtime Melbourne producer and veteran session musician Geoff Wright, whose Hammond and slide guitar add a soul sensibility to the record. Preserving the authenticity of Ireland’s influences and sound, the entire album was recorded and mixed on a 24-track analog desk.

Drummer Pete Wilkins (Blue King Brown, Red Eyes) and bassist, Thierry Fossmalle (The Whitlams, Grace Knight) have added their instrumentation and interpretation of Rebecca’s songs, helping to shape the final sound of the album.

Ireland’s intimate vocals and rhythmic guitar grooves transport you into her world, creating something beautiful with all the Love and Sticky Tape a girl can muster!

You can catch Rebecca Ireland at the Sphinx Rock Cafe this Sunday.
