Rebecca Bakken is a singer. She is a Norwegian. She was born in 1971. Raised in Norway in the Seventies, without a radio or stereo, but lots of homemade music in the house, she started singing in Pop and Rock bands in her teens. She moved to New York in October 1994."That wasn’t courageous. It was just something I wanted to do”, she says with a laugh. "I went to New York to make music. And was shocked, because nobody called to make me a big star. So I started walking around the city, cleaning my apartment five times a day. Until I realized that if I wanted something in my life, I had to go out and get it. I can’t expect others to get it for me.”

She started writing - stories, poems, lyrics. By and for herself, without any intention of ever showing or reading, let alone singing, them toanybody else. ”I wrote because it was the only nice thing I could do during the daytime. The only thing that gave me some pleasure. I didn’t write for other people to hear it, but because I wanted to write. That’s when I started being comfortable with who I am.”Rebecca became famous for her jazz music and her title album. "The art of how to fall".This she explains is the art of how to fall in love,but not just love, it is also the art of letting go."Not holding on, not controlling, is a beautiful art.” Says Rebecca
