Humble, self-deprecating, and consistently hilarious, Rebekah Hawker smiles often and easily onstage; and it takes only one look through a typical crowd to see it’s contagious. Her musical style moves freely between the traditional definitions of country and folk music with a powerful voice that seemingly explodes from within her and reveals the refined craftsmanship and intention of her songs.
With assistance from FACTOR’s Artist Development program in 2019 and 2020, Rebekah released her debut EP ‘Careful Women’ and in 2020 her song ‘Catch You’ won Folk Music Ontario’s Songs from the Heart award; in 2022 she was selected as an official showcasing artist at their annual conference. In 2021 she released her follow up single ‘Lonely’ accompanied by a self-directed music video satirizing the exhausting experience of online dating in an increasingly virtual world.
Most recently Rebekah was selected as a participant in RBC x Music’s Launchpad Music Entrepreneurship Program for the 2023 season; a four month program hosted at Artscape Daniel's Launchpad in Toronto dedicated to supporting artists better their understanding of how to develop their career and artistic initiatives in a sustainable and profitable way.
