Rising Blues star Rebecca Downes announces second album 'Believe' and 2016 live dates

Rising blues star Rebecca Downes returns in 2016 with her highly anticipated second album BELIEVE, released on 4th March.  The release will be celebrated with a special album launch show at London’s iconic 100 Club on 23rd February.

Written by Rebecca with co-writer Steve Birkett and produced by Mark V Stuart (Magnum, Jim Lea, Diamond Head and more), BELIEVE is the follow up to Downes’ 2015 debut album 'Back To The Start', which garnered critical acclaim from press across the board, with support from Radio 2's Paul Jones, BBC Introducing, Planet Rock Radio, and making Blues Magazine's Top 50 albums of 2015 in their end of year edition.

For West Midlands-based Rebecca, who has repeatedly turned down offers from X Factor producers in the past year in order to carve out her music career organically and sincerely, this second album represents a significant landmark in her journey.

She comments:


“The album title represents the belief that I have needed to get this far and the belief we now have in the quality of our music and our live performances.  2015 allowed us to measure ourselves against some of the best around and we believe we made our own mark.


“The mood of the album reflects the progress we have made – musically and personally – since the first album.  I am both more comfortable in my own life and skin and our own music, the mood of the album reflects that, showcasing different aspects of the journey and vocally how hungry I am to get that live feel onto the tracks.”


Since her debut, Rebecca has toured the UK and Europe extensively, selling out clubs on the UK blues scene and supporting the likes of Blues rockers KING KING in the UK, and Norman Beaker in Europe, continuing to win the affections of her audiences and further establishing herself as one of the star attractions amongst the new vanguard of blues performers in the UK.
