11:30pm – Rebecca Loebe – Black Oak Artists – #454

Rebecca Loebe has signed with Blue Corn Music for her February 8 release ‘Give Up Your Ghosts.’ Though she appeared on the Voice in 2011 and was courted by Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera (eventually joining team Adam), Loebe has built her reputation through road-dogging, one show and one fan at a time. It’s resulted in over 50,000 fans on social media; support slots for The Civil Wars, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Gregory Alan Isakov; airplay on over 600 stations for her previous album ‘Blink.’ ‘Give Up Your Ghosts’ marks the fifth album and a high-water mark of storytelling and emotional power for the Austinite.
