Beccy Cole's Biography

Country songstress Beccy Cole has delighted Australian listeners and concertgoers for more than twenty years. The Adelaide-born star’s glowing warmth, honeyed voice, bawdy sense of humour and perpetual smile have helped make Beccy one of the nation’s best-loved and most celebrated artists. With her stunning tenth release Sweet Rebecca, Beccy colours these winning qualities with bittersweet remembrance and reflection on her life thus far – both onstage and off.

 

With the 1993 Toyota Star Maker title and nine subsequent Golden Guitars to her name (including four for Female Vocalist of the Year), as well as multiple ARIA Top 10 Country and Top 40 Mainstream records, three gold-certified releases, more than a dozen No. 1 Australian country singles, several song writing awards, two Entertainer of the Year awards, a Top 10 DVD, ARIA nominations, and countless sold-out shows Australia-wide stretching out behind her, Beccy Cole is one of Australia’s most successful singer-songwriters.

 

Since self-titled debut Beccy Cole appeared in 1997, Beccy has piloted a succession of stellar releases, from Wild at Heart (2001), Little Victories (2003), and Feel This Free (2005), to Live @ Lizotte's (2007), covers collection Preloved (2010), and the ARIA-nominated Songs & Pictures (2011), which features Golden Guitar-winning hits ‘Waitress’ and ‘Millionaires’ (with Kasey Chambers). Then already overdue, “Best of” collection Beccy's Big Hits appeared in 2013.

 

Sweet Rebecca follows hot on the heels of Beccy’s phenomenal collaboration with Melinda Schneider, Great Women of Country and the Songs that Made Them (2014), as well as hit cabaret show The Cowgirl and The Showgirl, produced and performed by Beccy in collaboration with her partner in love, life, and lights Libby O’Donovan.

 

As the title promises, Sweet Rebecca is the most personal album of Beccy’s career. The release coincides with the publication of Beccy’s strikingly candid memoir, Poster Girl. It was the frequently gruelling task of writing this tell-all account of her life and career so far that inspired the twelve tracks of Sweet Rebecca.

 

“For me, every time I write songs it’s a very cathartic experience, because I write about my life,” Beccy says. “I think the more honest you are, the better the song is going to be. After I wrote the book, I was ready to write songs – or at least ready to write some words that rhymed!”

As Beccy’s remarkable story demonstrates, the truest measure of a life well-lived lies not in personal achievement, but in the people who choose to come along for the ride. Sweet Rebecca is a dedication to the people who have made Beccy the treasured artist she is today: from her musical parents Carole and Jeff, to faithful friends, colleagues, and confidants met along the way.
