Becca Tremmel
So, I was born in Hackensack, NJ in 1994. I am the middle child of three. My big sister is my role model and she currently studying fashion (and she’s sort of perfect), and my little brother is a newly engaged, skiing obsessed hooligan who looks exactly like me. My family moved to Sundance, UT when I was four. I went to the Sundance Mountain School and spent most of my time hiking Mount Timpanogos and learning about all about wildlife. We technically didn’t have a “math class” but please ask me anything about owls, elk, or mountain lions. I probably most definitely know the answer… unlike math. I spent hours and hours riding my horse, Jazzie; hiking and skiing that mountain with my late, great Bernese Mountain Dog, Cassie.

And then, of course, there was music at the crazy young age of five I began to create and memorize melodies and lyrics and started to understand song structure. My favorite singers were Hannah Montana and Avril Lavigne (naturally) but honestly my world was shook the moment I heard “Teardrops on my Guitar” by Taylor Swift. I was sold. I wanted to be a songwriter.

I started taking drum lessons at six and continued until I realized that writing and melodies were more my thing. I wanted to tell stories so I started learning how to play guitar, taking voice lessons and writing in my journal. At 15 I wrote my first song, “Maybe.” It was a song about a boy who broke my heart. Typical.

When I was about 10 years old The Bluebird Cafe started visiting the Sundance Resort during the Summertime. I was absolutely wonderstruck by these legends who from a magical and must-be mythical place called, Nashville. Also, they were visiting MY mountain all the way out in Utah. The Bluebird inspired me to pursue my passion of writing songs and telling stories and I set my sights on Nashville. Along the way I attended a summer clinic at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and was then accepted to the songwriting program and the voice program, but I knew Nashville was my destination. Now I am a graduate from Belmont University’s songwriting program in Nashville. I spent 2019 sailing around the world as a cruise ship musician which was WILD, but I found my way back to Nashville.

After returning from the 7 seas I decided to really pursue the whole artist thing. I started playing full band shows around Nash with my all female band !! I put out a couple of songs, my first music video and I even started to develop my team. It’s been an amazing journey and yet I only feel like it’s the beginning.

I hope to be here for a long, long time. Nashville is the greatest town in the world. I love playing at venues around town and can’t believe the insanely talented people I am meeting.

When I am not singing and playing you can find me riding horses, shooting arrows, spelunking, skiing, rescuing wildlife, having earnest conversations with my cats, watching my talented friends play music around town or running a coffee shop.

Check out the “projects” section to see what I am currently up to! And of course send me a message or a letter. I would absolutely love to hear from you !!!

Lovesick Duo is an Italian band composed by two musicians from Bologna, both multi-instrumentalists, whose influences are deeply rooted in the American country, rock’n’roll and western swing music of the 40s and 50s. In addition to their vocal harmonies Paolo Roberto Pianezza plays electric, and acoustic guitar, as well as single and double necked lap steel, resonator and dobro guitar. Francesca Alinovi plays the double bass with the addition of a brush pad, a percussion built into the double bass to keep the rhythm with a drum brush.

The Lovesick Duo concert is a total immersion in the America’s atmospheres of the 40s-50s: with their sound, clothing and vintage musical instruments, they touch the tipical Country Music and Rock’n’Roll themes like love, betrayal and fun.

In 2015 they released the homonymous album ‘Lovesick Duo’, while in 2017 came ‘New Orleans Session’, and in 2018 they produced ‘La Valigia Di Cartone’ (with exclusively original songs written in Italian), as well as several singles released between 2019 and 2020.

In many years of activity they have been invited to perform throughout Italy, Switzerland, Poland, France, Ireland, Sweden, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Croatia the United States in festivals, clubs, public parties and private receptions, with an almost over 120 concerts per year.

In 2021 they released the album with only original songs, ‘All Over Again’, and ‘A Country Music Adventure’. The last one is focused on the golden age of country music through reinterpretations of some of the classics of the pioneers of this genre that inspired them.

For about twelve months, their songs have been broadcasted on the radios in Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Ireland, United States and Brazil, increasing their popularity in the world through the web. Thanks to their strong presence on the social media, the interest of the television production increased so much that they were called for the movie about Francesco Totti’s life ‘Speravo de morì prima’, on Sky TV – recently released in DVD format – and in ‘Lamborghini’, soon to be released in cinemas, where they are both present as actors and musicians.

In 2021 they received the nomination for the American Western Artists’ Award and the invitation to perform as guests at Casa Sanremo for the 71st edition of the Festival della Canzone Italiana, in the dedicated space “We Have a Dream” directed by Red Ronnie.

On Facebook they have exceeded 124.000 followers, their YouTube channel has over 13.500 subscribers with over 15.000.000 video streaming, more than 41.000 followers on Instagram and these numbers are growing day by day.

Thanks to this, they continue to obtain unanimous approval from their loyal public; an affection and a warmth that is fully expressed in the live dimension with the sold out in every stage of the recent tour that has touched the clubs of large cities such as Rome, Milan, Verona, Treviso and Bologna, thanks to the online and entrance ticket sale.

They played as opening act for Ben Harper, Toquinho, Edoardo Bennato and they played in the same big festivals all around Europe with The Offsprings, Ten Years After, Social Distortion, Walter Trout, Zucchero, Orchestra Secondo Casadei, etc…

They print and sold more than 12.000 copies of their albums during these years in Europe, USA and Asia. These results have been achieved with the support of AZ Press for the press and coordination office and Barley Arts agency for the booking activity, one of the biggest music managers in Italy. The two musicians inspire with their tangible joy of playing and rousing stage presence.
