Rebecca Emily Hollcraft is an American singer/songwriter and guitarist. She was born on May 9, 1989 in Portland, Oregon. Also known as Bec Hollcraft and Becca Chan.
She began singing and writing songs at a young age and started playing guitar when she was 10 years old. During her school years she was very active in choir and acting. When she was 13 a family friend had recorded her at a choir event in school. The tape found its way to Meredith Brooks who had been looking for a new artist to develop. "Bec has a powerhouse voice, and when I realized she could write songs too…I was sold” said Meredith.
With the support of her parents, Becca spent her summer vacation that year in Los Angeles with Meredith working on songs for her demos. Becca’s talent soon caught the ear of radio programmers in her hometown of Portland. After some airplay on local specialty shows, Bec was soon added into full time rotation and received incredible response. Bec was also covered by local television stations, featured in The Oregonian, and was the cover story in Two Louies, Portland’s premiere music magazine. She began performing around Los Angeles under the name Bec Hollcraft, playing at clubs such as The Roxy, Troubadour, Key Club, Knitting Factory, and the House of Blues with a full band. She also performed smaller acoustic shows at places like The Derby, and The Rainbow Room.
In early 2008 Becca signed a deal with Sony Music Entertainment Japan and released her single "Perfect Me" on April 9, 2008 in Japan. The song was featured on the TV show "Damages" in its Japanese release from April 2, 2008 to June 1, 2008. Becca's debut 5-song EP "Perfect Me" was released in Japan on June 4, 2008 with a second 5-song EP "Turn to Stone" released August 6, 2008. Her full-length debut album will be released later this year. Starting July 1, 2008 Becca's songs "Falling Down" and "Guilty Pleasure" will be featured as the title and theme songs of the animated series "Ultraviolet: Code 044." Becca also contributed a cover of "I Drove All Night" to a Cyndi Lauper tribute album that was released July 23, 2008. Becca played both dates of the 2008 Summer Sonic festival in Osaka and Tokyo.
