BECA (born Becca Schack) is an LA based composer/producer who records and performs as a solo electronic artist. A graduate of The Juilliard School, she creates music that straddles both contemporary and cinematic worlds, applying conservatory training to modern pop sensibility. As a solo artist and producer, the NYC to LA transplant is known for her emotive pop, dreamy synths, and ethereal vocals. From the ballet stage to beats for the dance floor, she “has honed her voice into a sound that is both fresh and truly her own.” (Filter Magazine)
A number of BECA’s songs have been licensed to television, including Ice Cream that aired on UK hit series Made in Chelsea, and 2 Sapphires on Lifetime’s Dance Moms, which garnered over two million views online. She wrote, performed, and produced her song Who’s Checking Out Who for a Boots 17 Makeup commercial in collaboration with Partizan, Mother, and Red UK which went viral in its first launch week. Other tracks of hers have been licensed to shows such as Bones and One Life To Live.
Releases include two EPs via UK label This Is Music Ltd, Ecliptic LP, and her most recent In Deep Love EP. Her concerts have spanned the US, Europe, and Mexico, including festivals SXSW, Sundance Film Festival, NYC Gay Pride, POP Montreal, and NXNE. Over 50 radio stations have aired her music including NPR’s The Essentials and LA’s famed KCRW. She has been featured in numerous press outlets including Consequence of Sound, Galore Mag, and Stereogum, among others. Collaborations have included notable disco pop producers Morgan Wiley of Midnight Magic and Blake Robin aka Luxxury, English producer veteran John Fryer, and more.
BECA started winning public recognition for her compositions at age eleven at ASCAP's Young Composers competitions and studied composition with Samuel Adler and Pulitzer Prize/Grammy winner Christopher Rouse at Juilliard, where she earned a Bachelor of Music. As part of the Buddy Baker Film Scoring Workshop at NYU, members of the New York Philharmonic performed her score Liberators. She started forging her own path toward electronic music while studying with multi-instrumentalist / composer Elliott Sharp and attending The Dartington Music Festival in Devon, England - melding electro-acoustic elements and vocals with classical instrumentation. Commissions include ensembles ranging from brass quintet, women’s choir, to symphonic band.
