Becky Pine at UCPAC | 8:00pm - 10:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Live Music, Music, Songwriter, Acoustic- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Becky Pine to Play The Fazioli Room at UCPAC on June 1st
Indie singersongwriter brings her music and stories to Rahway in an intimate acoustic performance
“Some people’s lives bring them full circle. Mine goes in circles,” Becky Pine jokes. Ten years ago, the singersongwriter packed big dreams into her little blue pickup truck and moved to Nashville. Until then, she’d lived down a long dirt road in the foothills of upstate New York’s Catskill Mountains, spending as much of her childhood baking pies with her Mom as she did working on antique cars with her Dad.
Pine was always drawn to music and fell in love with Country Music in the late ‘90s, an era when female voices like The Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain, Martina McBride, and Lee Ann Womack had a strong hold on the genre. She remembers seeing Carolyn Dawn Johnson open for Kenny Chesney at an arena show when she was 15, and recognizing a feeling she’d never had before. She knew in that moment exactly what she wanted to do with her life.
From there, one might think her path would be clearly marked, but it was not. Upon arriving in Music City, 18 years old and on her own for the first time, Becky quickly found the exorbitant magnitude of talent to be overwhelming “little fish in the big sea” syndrome, if you will. She set aside her desires to perform and refocused her energy on the business side of things, where she excelled. After several years of working in the world of management, labels and touring, feeling unfulfilled, Pine decided to take a step back from the music industry, move home and explore other career options.
“As much as I tried to fight it, the longing to sing and write never left me alone. I’d see my old Belmont classmates signing publishing deals, debuting their videos on CMT, or going on tour and have a sinking feeling that I was missing the boat. I finally gave in and starting picking up the guitar everyday and the songs started coming,” Pine says. The more she wrote, the more she wanted it. Now she’s made the move a second time to Music City, exactly 10 years, nearly to the day, from the first time.
“I’m ready this time,” she says confidently. “I know I haven’t taken a traditional path in this industry, but that’s what makes me who I am, and I’m proud of it. It’s about the journey, not the destination.” The highs and lows between her initial move to Music City and now provided the adversity and growth needed for Pine to emerge as a genuine and emotive songwriter on her debut release, Perfect Timing. The EP is filled with poignant lyrics and melodies that have more than a few Nashville insiders predicting the girl who fell in love with country all those years ago will be experiencing her own “full circle” moments in no time.
Becky Pine will play a solo acoustic show of her original songs and some of her favorite covers in The Fazioli Room at Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, NJ at 8pm on Wednesday June 1st. Tickets are available at http://www.ucpac.org/events.
