Glowing with catchy pop hooks, Rachel Beck’s distinctive piano melodies and emotive vocals are captivating audiences across Canada. The PEI songbird’s first single, Reckless Heart, hit #1 on the CBC Music Top 20 in March 2018, just one week after the release of her multi-award-winning debut record. “Beck clearly establishes herself here as a force to be reckoned with, both as a songwriter and as a performer.” (The Guardian Newspaper)
