Rebecca Pidgeon – Raven
Available on backorder
Chesky Records LP115
Pidgeon’s first Chesky release, The Raven, featured Pidgeon's stunning version of “Spanish Harlem.” The Raven went on to become an audiophile classic, thanks to Pidgeon's crystalline voice and Chesky's high-fidelity recording techniques.
Rebecca Pidgeon, the acclaimed Scottish actress, has also displayed her gift as a singer/songwriter on her several well-received albums. Taking elements from folk, pop, jazz, and Celtic traditions, Pidgeon crafts lilting, intimate poetry.
Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, she later moved to Edinburgh, Scotland with her family at the age of five. As a teenager in Scotland, she sang along with the radio and her parents’ Beatles and Joni Mitchell records as a light escape from her demanding acting studies. Eventually, she enrolled in London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art at 18 where she studied drama, music, and voice.
Reflective yet contemporary, Rebecca’s lovely voice rings with honest, unpretentious confidence and vivid tenderness. While her Celtic melodies set the mood, her lyrics tell stories, full, rich, textured, and open hearted. This amazing talent makes her U.S. debut with The Raven, Chesky Record’s most striking, powerful and fully realized vocal record to date.
