Dark disco diva Beca creates sensual and emotive pop that will leave you spellbound at first listen. The NYC to LA transplant’s critically acclaimed catalog re-imagines '80s/'90s pop, intimate lyrics, and dreamy synths into an ethereal sonic sphere. For inspiration, she turns to mythology, classical music, film, art, romantic stories, and her personal life.
Beca is a prodigiously gifted musician who graduated from the Juilliard School, and forged her own path away from formal training. During school she sought out opportunities to explore avant-garde electronic music, compose for amplified string instruments, and soak up New York City’s thriving underground club culture.
Since 2012, she has released two of her EP’s via the UK label This Is Music Ltd., self-released her full-length album Ecliptic in 2015, and worked with such notable names as producer Morgan Wiley of Midnight Magic, and remixers Ashley Beedle, Klic, Night Drive, and Madeaux. She's garnered praise from such tastemaking outlets as Flaunt, Galore Mag, Stereogum, and Lucky Magazine, among others. Beca has also accrued radio spins from over 50 stations nationally including NPR’s “The Essentials” and LA’s famed KCRW. In addition, she has been finalist in the International Songwriting Competition and the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Live concerts have spanned the US, Europe, and Mexico, as well as the likes of CMJ, SXSW, Miami Fashion Week, Sundance Film Festival, POP Montreal, and NXNE.
Her latest release, the sweetly haunting In Deep Love EP, produced by Blake Robin of Luxxury and Fabian Ordorica (Goldroom, Nylo) reflects a time of transition and hope. Standouts include the pastel pop colourings of “Captivity" and the title track, called "a shimmering and propulsive, club-banger that sonically seems indebted to Giorgio-Moroder-era disco disco and 80s freestyle,” carried off "with all the touch of glam and alluring panache of a new generation pop princess." Out now.
"...Something a little darker to sooth the needs of that black-hearted princess inside of you...[Beca's] haunting vocals mixed with dazzling pop-synths give us that perfect mix of yin and yang; good girl…and bad." - Angie Piccirillo

BECA PLAYS SOFAR SOUNDS ON 7/28 - The Deli MagAzine
"Electro pop artist Beca's mix of dance and synth pop sounds brings back the term throwback in the best possible way. Her kinetic songs demand your immediate response, with dark, Euro disco-tinged rhythms that could be described as if Cold Cave enlisted Kylie Monigue to collaborate on their latest project. Which exhibits the potency of her focus: Beca surely wants you to join the dancefloor, but she'd appreciate it if you'd pay attention to her propulsive tempos, too." - Juan Rodríguez
WHAT’S IN YR FRIDGE, BECA? – Flaunt Magazine
"Your pupils are dilated, your heart is racing, and you’ve suddenly got a hankering for ripped t-shirts and fingerless gloves. No, you’re not high, but you may as well be. Streaming Beca’s latest LP Ecliptic is like taking your first bump (sans any regrets of abandoned purity). You’re euphoric, maybe a bit horny, and ready to let naughtiness ensue. With her dark electro pop sound, reminiscent of Goldfrapp cut with the purest of Kylie Minogue pop, Beca steadily bewitches you, addicting you, begging you to come back for more. Tracks like “Meteor” and “Hunted Me Down“ dream a little dream of catchy hooks that will have you humming along in (till night becomes day and you finally fall asleep). The Juilliard School alumnus serenades you with unmitigated talents. Submission, yes, by the time you’ve finished her album it’s too late. She’s seduced you, had her way with you, and she’s not letting you go. Our recommendation? Keep your eyes closed as you listen to this songstress’ latest collaboration, the Caleb Stone remix of “Ice Cream.” Let the kaleidoscope of color flood your ears, a kind of synesthesia to keep you warm on cold nights when that pesky lover of yours can’t get away."
