American singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Becky Krill is destined to become a household name within the next few months, and new single ‘Bubble’ explains why. Taken from Becky’s new album ‘Little Girl’, ‘Bubble’ is the type of song you’d sing into your hairbrush while dancing around your room. Based in Brooklyn, Becky is a breathtaking artist with layers of star-quality. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Ani Difranco, Sara Bareilles, TLC, The Rolling Stones, Alanis Morissette and Robyn, Becky Krill is known for her diverse sound.
Speaking about the release, Becky Krill shares, “I was very inspired by the Dixie Chicks when I sat down to write Bubble. I guess you could say this is my “shut up and sing” song. Bubble features Rootstock Republic on strings & noteworthy percussionist Allison Miller on drums. The song explores how our gender, race & overall identities can put us in harm’s way & encourages everyone (especially young women) to stand up to bullies, racists, chauvinists & oppressors of all kinds.”
Adding to how the track was made, Becky states, “I wrote Bubble at home alone on my guitar. I went into the studio the next day to record it with producer and recording engineer Craig Levy. Craig had some ideas/suggestions to streamline the lyrics and improve the melody, which I happily accepted. From there I got in touch with Juliette Jones (violin) and Jarvis Benson (viola) of Rootstock Republic to arrange and record the strings. Cellist Aaron Stokes also performed on the recording, along with drummer Allison Miller (toured with: Ani Difranco, Brandi Carlile, Natalie Merchant). Craig performed the bass, ukelele and banjo parts and I played guitar. Group effort.”
