REBECCA LOEBE ‘GIVE UP YOUR GHOSTS’ EARNING CAREER-BEST REVIEWS AS TOUR KICKS OFF, OFFICIAL SXSW SHOWCASE OFFERED, FOLK ALLIANCE SHOWCASE CONFIRMED

 

Rebecca Loebe’s new album ‘Give Up Your Ghosts’ is earning raves as a high water mark for the singer-songwriter as her tour kicked off last week. She also earned official showcase invitations from SXSW and Folk Alliance and released a new music video for the song “Tattoo.”

 

‘Give Up Your Ghosts’ is an experiential look at life as a woman in the 21st century through the guise of advice Loebe would give her younger self. She talks about that inspiration in this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8kgN5hlKMA

 

The Bluegrass Situation just did a Q&A with her.
