Miss Becky Kapell and the Fat 6

Raised in small town Minnesota, Becky moved to Portland Oregon on a whim as a young adult and began singing back-up vocals in various bands, eventually fronting her own country cover band. Along came a husband, two kids and a move back to Minnesota. “I worked full-time, raised my kids and basically forgot about music until my son started playing guitar as a teenager. After my divorce I found myself with a little more time on my hands so I picked up one of my sons guitars and began teaching myself to play for fun.” She eventually met and started playing with local guitar stalwart Paul Bergen and her song writing morphed from the folkier sound of her first record to a more guitar-driven country sound. "I've always loved country music from the 50's, 60's and 70's...I love the earnestness of the words and the deceptively simple melodies and the songs I'm writing now reflect that love. Plus I'm a sucker for the kick-ass guitar playing on so many of those old records and it's fun to be able to hear Paul add that on my own songs.” Becky recently celebrated the release of her second record That Certain Ache. Recorded and produced by Bergen, the record also features his signature guitar work as well as guitar and drums by Erik Koskinen who mixed the record. She plays with her band The Fat 6 across the midwest.
