ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Grown Up Games, the forthcoming album from Rebecca Correia

Produced by Grammy-award winning artist, Keb’ Mo’, Grown Up Games is the sixth release from independent singer and songwriter, Rebecca Correia. The album began with inspiration from a single tune that ultimately led to recording of 6 songs—as well as discovering a greater sense of community and personal growth along the way.

“It all began after overcoming a hurdle in my life around November 2016,” says the 37-year old Massachusetts native speaking from Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee, where she spends half the year. “I sat down and wrote a song called ‘Solid Ground.’ The very next morning I woke up from a vivid dream of a woman dancing on a ship,” she explains. “I recognized both the ship and the woman in my dream as the S.S.V. Tabor Boy [a ship owned by a private high school in Marion, Massachusetts near Rebecca’s hometown] and Boston Marathon bombing survivor, Adrianne Haslet.” Rebecca had been following Ms. Haslet on social media, inspired by her story of perseverance, after the terrorist attack caused the dancer to lose one of her legs. “I knew immediately the dream and the song were going to intersect in my life, but I didn’t know exactly how.”

After a call to her friend, Keb’ Mo’, and sharing her vision with him, the two made a plan to start recording “Solid Ground” with the support of his Nashville-based company, Kind of Blue Music.

Later, with the new recording of “Solid Ground,” Rebecca introduced herself to Haslet and enlisted the dancer’s help in realizing her vision for a video. The two performed on the “Tabor Boy” under full sail in Sippican Harbor that summer. Directed by Rob Ranney, the video includes cameos by Keb’, as well as friends and family. The song and video were released simultaneously in August, 2017, with 50% of the song’s download proceeds donated to Limbs For Life Foundation, a nonprofit that provides fully functional prosthetic care to those who cannot afford it. “To this day, that experience was one of the greatest adventures and triumphs of my life,” says Correia.

With the momentum of “Solid Ground,” Rebecca returned to the studio to record “Gin”, a song written and originally recorded by singer and songwriter, Amy Correia, who is also Rebecca’s cousin. “‘Gin’ has long been a staple during my performances,” says Rebecca, “and always a fan favorite with its incredibly visual lyrics and story about a young woman who loses herself.” Part of the songs’ lyrics would become the title of the new album.

After “Gin,” Rebecca recorded an original, “Brand New Day,” written with artist and guitarist, Jack Pearson, that illustrates overcoming the perils of depression. A co-write Rebecca had on Keb’s Grammy-nominated 2014 release, Bluesamericana, the tender "So Long Goodbye,” was next. Rebecca & Keb' recorded the song as a duet for the album. Then, an inspired collaboration with revered Nashville singer and songwriter, Beth Nielsen Chapman, resulted in “Looking Back,” described by Rebecca as “a wholehearted confession of the profound grip and affect one person has had on my life.”

Musical contributions to Grown Up Games include drums by Steve Turner; bass by Eric Ramey & Jonny Morrow ; cello by Jenny-Lynn Young; vocals by Alyssa Bonagura, Ernie Halter & Leslie Satcher; and guitars by Keb’ Mo’. The resulting music is a stylish blend of blues and pop, featuring Rebecca’s steady rhythm-playing on guitar and piano, expressive vocals at the helm of each song.

“I realize that I am only in the middle of my story and there are still many lessons to learn,” says Rebecca. “But the experience of making this record has been supreme in the discovery of my true musical identity and soul at this time in my life. I’m a soul survivor just like the rest.”

Grown Up Games is slated for release in Spring 2019.
