May 13, 2014  •  Leave a Comment



Becky DePass is the latest upcoming artist on the Jamaican music scene. Her vibrant personality and emotional lyrics make her shine like the upcoming star that she is. Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, she was introduced to all genres of music growing up. She began singing at a very young age and her parents ensured that she went to voice classes and was an active member of her school choir. Her professional career in music started with her singing background vocals for other local artists. After "getting her feet wet" and garnering useful experience over a two year period she felt comfortable moving out on her own. Her love for music is reflected in the music that she sings, which remains unrestrained by the boundaries of " What genre of music do you sing?" Her two singles out now include a reggae version of the Procol Harum classic "Whiter Shade of Pale" and her breakout original "Run Away", a dance song. A graduate of the University of the West Indies with a degree in Literature, her lyrics are layered with meaning and imagery.

She currently performs live music at both private and public functions across the island. The musicians that grace the stage with her are some of the most talented in Jamaica. They perform songs across all genres from reggae and soca to disco and pop. She is no stranger to long hours of hard work but she quotes Bob saying "when the music hits you, you feel no pain" To see her perform is to understand and feel how much she loves what she does. Her performance to a small audience at Jahva cafe in 2013 had patrons that filled inside and even more who stood outside, watching through the window. Later reviews expressed that her audience could feel how much fun she was having and created a feeling of exhilaration, which was positively enhanced by the intimate setting. Ensure you don't miss the opportunity to visit her Facebook page and Youtube channel, we look forward to seeing and hearing great things from her.
