Rebecca Blasband

Born and raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Rebecca Blasband grew up in a lively, educated family of scientists and artists. In 1985, Rebecca attended NYU, Tisch School of the Arts for film and studied theater for three years with David Mamet, William H. Macy and The Atlantic Theater Company at its inception. During this time, Rebecca began performing her original songs in the downtown NY music scene, partnering with Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne, Ivy, That Thing You Do). Her first demo caught the interest
of MTV/Bunim-Murray producers who cast her among six others in their first season of The Real World, NY, 1992. This “documentary series” sparked the Reality Television genre, reached 55 million households worldwide and re-ran for ten years. Rebecca signed with Warner Chappell Music publishing and Mercury Records. She toured opening for Squeeze and Aimee Mann, Matchbox 20, Chris Whitley and Jon Bon Jovi.
She participated in Miles Copeland’s two week long “Troubadour’s Songwriting Retreat” at ChateauMarrouatte, along with Cher, Zucchero, Chris Difford, and eighteen other artists and songwriters. In 1997 Rebecca released her CD album, RAPT with a full band, produced by Warren Bruleigh (Lou Reed, Violent Femmes) and Gordon Gano on electric guitars. RAPT was well received by press, college radio, AAA and Modern Rock. In 2000, after Mercury Records dissolved, Rebecca produced sound design and music for television and film, in Santa Monica and Venice, CA. She briefly returned to her screenwriting roots, leading her to collaborate with Academy Award nominated producer, Antonin Svoboda on his feature
narrative film, “The Strange Case of Wilhelm Reich,” released in 2013. In 2015, Rebecca attended the Chris Difford/Buddy Holly Foundation songwriting retreat at Pennard House, Somerset, England. She lived in London and Southern France from 2015 until 2017, when she returned to the States record HERE with Danny Uzilevsky producing at the helm, at his studio, Allegiant, in San Anselmo, California. The album was completed and mastered in May, with a release scheduled for the 16th of November.
