Har man kærlighed til country eller roots lurende i blodet kan det være direkte svært ikke at falde for Rebekka Thornbech. Fra start til slut emmer 'A year in a life' af personlighed og viljestyrke - og ikke mindst af en evne til musikalsk at favne den mangfoldighed som rent faktisk kan forefindes i den ellers ret traditionsbundne country genre.
Man kan vel sige, at hvis Dorthe Gerlach og Ester Brohus hidtil har været 'Toppen af (country)poppen ' - ja, så har klubben fået et nyt medlem.

'Stilsikker, dansk Americana - Albummet 'A year in a life' repræsenterer et skridt op ad rangstigen. Den kunstneriske nerve er mere evident, fokus mere åbenlyst og utvetydigt.

Wanderlust means to have a deep and uncontrollable desire to hit the road and travel, by whatever means desired, to explore and enjoy the world. That's the exact feeling that Rebekkas music and latest album WANDERLUST sprung from - Wanderlust mixed with a longing to find peace of mind and a place to call home. In January 2018 Rebekka Thornbech began working on her new album A YEAR IN A LIFE. It's a concept album divided into 4 EP's - one for each season of the year. Rebekka will write the album during 2018 while releasing it and in that way keep the songwriting as fresh and on the spot as possibly - telling the story of a year in her life.
June 3rd 2016 the Nordic Country singer/songwriter Rebekka Thornbech from Denmark released her new album Wanderlust, which was mostly written during a long visit to Nashville, the home of country music. The music is deeply rooted within country, americana and bluegrass and is flavored with catchy choruses. Wanderlust creates a universe built on hope and longing and fuses americana with Rebekka's Nordic roots, creating a distinct Nordic country sound. The songs 'We got Time' and 'Sunshine follow me' from the album has recieved a lot of airplay and was two of the most played songs on the danish radio station P5 during the summer of 2016.
Rebekka grew up in a family where music always played an enormous part of the daily life. Rebekka and her three sisters have been singing together as long as they can all remember and that clearly shines through in Rebekkas music today, where her sisters Hannah and Emma always sings the backing vocals. Since Rebekka returned from Nashville she has assembled a bluegrass-inspired band including her sisters Hannah and Emma. With strong vocal harmonies the three sisters and the band delivers an acoustic musical universe that moves from lyrical ballads to energetic bluegrass.
Rebekka published her first single 'Woman' in 2013, a song which received a lot of airplay on Danish radio. On March 7th, 2014 her debut album SO BE IT was released, reaching number 7 on the album charts in Denmark.
In March 2014 she was a contestant in the preliminary Danish part of the European Song Contest with the song 'Your Lies', which came in second.
Rebekka released the singles 'Tell-tale heart' and 'Better days will come' in 2017 and has been touring Denmark the last years.
