Rebecca Riots

About Rebecca Riots

Named after an mid-19th century uprising against the British government in South Wales, the Rebecca Riots is an acoustic folk trio from Berkeley, CA. Andrea Prichett and Eve Decker met at a summer camp where they were both working in 1993. The two spent their evenings playing music together and eventually invited Prichett's guitar teacher, Lisa Zeller, to join them. The three enjoyed playing together so much they decided to form a band and spent the next few years building up a following in the Bay area. In 1995 they released their self-titled debut album, which was followed up by Some Folks in 1998. They began touring nationally to support that album and by the time their next album, Live at the Freight and Salvage, was released in 1999 they had attracted the attention of Appleseed Recordings, who provided them with a record contract and the national distribution that they needed to continue their success. Gardener was released in the spring of 2000 on Appleseed, and featured the kind of sensitive, socially conscious folk music that had characterized their sound for the last seven years. ~ Stacia Proefrock
