Country-folk musician set to release new single

Rebekah Hawker will perform Sept. 29 at Common Good Cafe & Social House, followed by show at Toronto's Cameron House the next night
Local songwriter Rebekah Hawker will be performing at the Common Good Cafe and Social House in Barrie on Sept. 29.

Award-winning songwriter Rebekah Hawker, a rising country folk artist local to Barrie, is set to captivate audiences once again with her latest single, Ticket.

Hawker explores the emotional roller-coaster of dealing with life's curveballs, from encounters with heartbreak to the challenges of navigating the digital age.

This classic, mid-tempo country song delves into two things that never go out of style, of broken hearts and broken dreams. 

She sings of good-for-nothing men and radio play, social media and getting ghosted, but flips the script in a canny way, declaring a positive outlook despite the rest.

It's a powerful reminder that hope is a beacon even in the darkest moments, encouraging us all to find worth in our journeys.

This poignant single marks Rebekah's triumphant return to music, marking her first release since her mother's sudden and heartbreaking death two years ago.

Through the grieving process, this song brought comfort, reassuring her that music could heal and bring support through the hardest of circumstances.

Rooted in the rich traditions of country and folk music, Rebekah Hawker brings her unique blend of '90s country pop and contemporary folk to the forefront. Her distinctive sound, influenced by the likes of Lori Mckenna, Kathleen Edwards, Kacey Musgraves, and others, offers emotional insight and yearns for connection, making her a true artist of our time.

To celebrate the release of Ticket and to connect with her local community, Rebekah Hawker will be performing two show dates in Barrie and Toronto. Don't miss this opportunity to experience her raw talent and heartfelt storytelling in person.

Release show dates:

Sept. 29 — Barrie — Common Good Cafe & Social House - Tickets

Sept. 30 — Toronto — The Cameron House (Backroom) - Tickets
