Singer-songwriter Becca Stevens has garnered numerous accolades during the past year. Her album Regina (GroundUp) was the subject of a 5-star review in the May issue of DownBeat, and she was the co-winner (along with Jen Shyu) of the category Rising Star–Female Vocalist in the 2017 DownBeat Critics Poll.

Now she has teamed up with another talented young artist, singer/multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, for a whimsical, amazing music video: “Bathtub.” Collier, a two-time Grammy winner who’s known for his dynamic shows in which he loops tapes, allowing him to accompany himself, released In My Room (Membran) in 2016.

    “I like to just click on songs that touched me and see if I could do them in a personal way — especially if it’s a well-known song,” Alpert said about selecting material for his new album.
