Rebecca Padula is a singer's singer-songwriter with a rich smooth alto and a New England sensibility. Her take on small communities is popular among audiences and her peers. The title track to her newest album, 'Time, Speed & Distance,' about driving through a Nor'Easter, was chosen a finalist in the Philadelphia Songwriters Association's Road Songs competition (2004). Her style is eclectic and engaging, but you won't find many love songs in her songbook. You will find: 'Less' a lament for farmland lost to big box stores; 'Moonlighting in VT' a lighthearted spoof on Vermont's tourism based economy; 'The Neighbors' which chronicles a domestic disturbance in her neighborhood; and 'Bagel Go Round' a tribute to a popular breakfast hangout- for Padula, politics are local. She has penned more than 40 original songs and released 2 independent albums: 'Time, speed & distance' (2003) and 'Waterfront' (1997). In addition, she has recorded themes and incidental music for local television and is producer/director of The Instant Coffeehouse, a monthly public access TV program that showcases solo performers.
