Rebecca Kingsley is an American-born singer, songwriter and performer whose smooth, warm, seductive sound-infused with a rich mix of Jazz, R&B and Latin rhythms and a sultry dose of strength and soul- has received industry support and critical acclaim in New York City and all over the world.
Kingsley was born in Portland, Maine, USA. She studied Jazz Voice at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City, and graduated from Eugene Lang College in May of 2011. She has recorded three albums since.
In 2012, Rebecca assumed the role of the artist, writer, producer, executive producer, arranger and bandleader in the making of her first ever album entitled "Untouched". While all of the songs on this first album are soulful fusions of Jazz and R&B with some organic hip-hop textures, the bonus track is a Bachata cover of the classic R&B standard, "Killing Me Softly". The song and music video's huge success inspired the making of an entire Bachata album in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Rebecca is celebrated for pushing musical boundaries as the first non-Latina to successfully cross over into the Bachata genre. After two years performing with her Bachata bands in New York City and Chicago, Kingsley has circled back to Jazz/Soul, her heart's home base. In 2016, she released her third album entitled "God Bless the Child".
Rebecca's albums feature exceptional musicians and collaborators including R&B legend, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie; 3-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist, Wyclef Jean; and renowned soul-jazz guitarist, Mark Whitfield.
