At the age of now 23, the songstress has performed alongside acclaimed musicians like Will Young and Kelis. She has also been featured on several television programs. Currently, Becky is working on her upcoming EP.
The singer elaborates on the single off of the EP “’Don’t Darken My Door’ is influenced by a specific weekend where two family members went through a break up at the same time and they both were influenced in different ways. One family member was bombarded with text messages and just said back “don’t darken my door” and I just thought ‘WHAT A GREAT LYRIC!’ I based the song around their breakups and created this song. The song is a vibe, it’s not supposed to be your usual break up song it has the level of ‘I don’t want you in my life anymore’ but in a more relaxed way and not throwing it in the audience’s face. It’s a non-aggressive breakup song for any person.”
