Becca is a singing tutor, lead singer with Decomposing In Paris and will be assistant bar manager at the upcoming Belfast Beer & Cider Festival (November 19-21).
Belfast. I was raised in Kentucky, but I’ve grown-up in Belfast and have the strange mid-Atlantic accent to prove it. This is now unquestionably my home… in spite of the rain…
Tell us something your mum doesn’t know about you?
This would have been much easier to answer a few years ago, but we have a great relationship (now that we are oceans apart). I tell her nearly everything, and what she doesn’t know, I’m pretty sure I don’t want published ;). I am sure, however, she’s not aware of every single tattoo I have.
What would you do if you had the keys to the city for the day?
Change all the locks 😉
What’s the most interesting discovery you’ve made in Belfast?
Which building would you most like to be locked in overnight?
With “good company” and room service – The Merchant, of course.
Alone – Ikea. I would feng shui the s*** out of that place.
Thor…not Chris Hemsworth. Thor.
Describe your perfect day in the city?
Lou Reed’s sounded pretty good… I like the zoo!
Earliest Belfast memory?
Boarding at Methody (summer 2003) and partying at “the bar that used to have a name”. Oh yeah… and meeting the man who would become my husband. He was clearly a man of means; providing a tasty Domino’s alternative to Methody’s canteen rations.
What movie most closely resembles your life story and why?
Well, I’m the wee singer girl from small town America, who left for the bright lights of the big city and found requited love in a songwriting Irishman… It’s probably too cliche to actually be a movie.
Sum up Belfast in three words?
It’s your round.
Becca will take a break from bar duties when Decomposing In Paris play a special acoustic set in the Ulster Hall as part of The Belfast Beer & Cider Festival on Friday November 20 from 2-4pm. They will perform unplugged versions of their own material as well as original interpretations of their favourite songs (from Tom Waits to Adele).
