Becca Mancari is rewriting the rules.
Born in Staten Island, New York, to an Italian-Irish preacher and a Puerto Rican mother, Mancari has lived a life of transition – from working as a janitor in South Florida, to writing songs with train hoppers in the Blue Ridge Mountains and seeking spirituality in India. Her latest album, “Good Woman,” is hauntingly lonesome, with dust-cloud swells of electric guitar and don’t-look- back lyrics revealing scenes from Mancari’s well-travelled story.
“the voice of a quiet observer coming to realizations that matter. Some of the songs on Good Woman are joyful and jangly, others moody, but they always exude exquisite self-awareness” –NPR
“It’s the kind of album that gives you enough space to spread out and luxuriate”.
