NEW YEAR, NEW CHEER.

I had an absolute blast on the Christmas Lights Tour, and thanks to YOU we sold over 1,000 copies and received over 200,000 Spotify streams!!  You guys are amazing.

Here's to the New Year's resolutions in music, life and love.  I'm back in the woodshed already - writing and polishing a fresh new batch of songs to release on a project in the summer / fall!  Stay tuned.  Pun intended.

Dualtone Records!

I signed my first label deal this month, and I'm so honored to be a part of the Dualtone family! 

signing a licensing and distribution deal with Dualtone Records.

Back in February, I released "What Love Looks Like" on Valentines Day.  CEO and Co-founder of Dualtone Records Scott Robinson happened to hear my song on Lightning 100 and told the team at the label to reach out to me.

The manager of A&R Will McDonald came out to my show that week and invited me to hang at the office with the president Paul Roper. I felt like I was catching up with old friends. Their philosophy on originality and our mutual love for authenticity in music had us bonding.

A couple months later, we were ready to sign a licensing and distribution deal. I know there's lots of work ahead, I'm humbled to have such an amazing team behind me, and I cannot wait to see what the partnership brings!

Thank you to ALL of the supporters who have been with me on this journey from the beginning. xoxo, RR.

The Making of "Christmas Lights"

Happy Holidays from Nashville!  Making a Christmas record in the summer is a little confusing psychologically for me.. I'm sweating. There are mosquitoes. I'm listening to Nat King Cole winter jams whilst sunbathing (SPF 85). 

But I'm super excited to finally record some of my favorite nostalgics like "Joy To The World" and to make them my own.  To take the classic songs we all know and love and to re-introduce them in a fresh, new way - to capture the actual meaning - to live in the space they were written. (We're also tracking some original holiday tunes I've written through the years!)

The record includes a co-write by myself and my long-time colleague Jake Etheridge as well as an ad-lib performance by Gospel singer Tammy Bullock!  We had an absolute blast, and we can't wait for you to hear it.

By "we," I mean producer Dan Fernandez of Nashville, TN, myself and some really great session guys in town. Dan is such a creative and talented guy.  He's worked with artists like Natalie Grant, Annie Lawrence, Great Peacock and others.

Sound Engineer David Brubaker, Producer Dan Fernandez, Cellist Scott Mulvahill.

But the coolest thing about being in the studio is the unexpected serendipitous things that happen.  While tracking "Silent Night," a thunderstorm rumbled it's way into the recording. Those are the magic moments, people - We kept the thunder rolls in the track!

Excited share these sweet songs with you this Christmas!  Get the album here!

Oh! And see all other #ChristmasLights news and happies hereStay tuned, and until Nov 18, spread the good cheer!  xoxo, RR

I had a blast co-writing the song with Angela Lauer and Chris Gelbuda - and we wanted to capture universal love, rather than solely romantic love - whether it be asibling, parent, best friend, significant other, pet, coffee, little joys, a stranger, a soul-mate, a memory or a note from a friend. 

Hashtag your own photos of #whatlovelookslike and tag @rebeccaroubion for a chance to win a free download of the song!!!  Also, I'd LOVE if you'd consider sharing the song and this link

 Every little bit helps spread the love this Valentines Day!!  Enjoy #whatlovelookslike.

a letter from a fan.

I received this special note from a man named Jerry - who streamed an online concert and loved the tunes.  It's an incredible feeling to know music is capable of connecting with people across the world - it's an incredible realization that you can visit human hearts from the steering wheel of a song.  Thank you, Jerry. This one's for you.

Dear Rebecca,

Thank you very much for creating this wonderful music. 

I am so glad I first saw you at the beautiful online show with Mark, Jessica and Michael. 

I received your 2 EPs and am very much enjoying them.

And thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell you.

I liked every song instantly, each one a gem, and I appreciate them deeper with each hearing.

Your voice is unbelievably beautiful, and so touching.

You really reach people.

Cripple Me literally brings me to tears, and feels cleansing and healing.

I smile and mentally dance through Vacherie Girl.

Not Sure Yet is uplifting and reminds me to appreciate the gifts of each day. 

And through it all is intelligence and depth that make it timeless.  

I am very thankful for your music, and look forward to everything you do in the future.

A new fan,

Jerry

LA LA Louisiana.

Oak Bar, Uptown New Orleans. 

No place feels more like my native nesting place than this unmatched, Gulf-tipped pindrop of the American South.
 
The debut Nola show Friday truly rocked socks - We had quite a crowd in tow:  old friends, new fans, locals - even my dear mom  surprised me, parading in with a crew of her cronies!  I will never forget that night.
 
Saturday, a "Baton Rougenite" 5-foot ball of sass named Sydney was kind enough to open her gorgeous two-story home for our house show, nestled next to the BR lakes in Southdowns.  
 
The audience?  Eclectic strangers. Cooler than I could ever hope to be - dressed in plaid and bayou charisma, posed like Kindergartners on blankets in the grass, waiting to be charmed by our melodic incantation.

Wes and I in "Red Stick".

Nashville's own indie-pop artist Wes Harllee joined me in true Nashville "round" style.  Check him out, people.  He's doing it.
 
"Laissez les bons temps rouler!"  Thank you, Louisiana!  You are beautiful.
