J-14 is scouting out the hottest music around... and this week's pick is Becca!
Here are five things you need to know about Becca, whose debut album Alive!! is out now.
Becca goes by just one name for two reasons -- it's "epic" and because when she went over to Japan to play music, Becca was easier to pronounce than "Bec Hollcraft."
Her fave track off Alive!! is called "Make You Mad." "I get to be an unapologetic ex-girlfriend," Becca explains to J-14. "It's an, 'I hate you for screwing me over so I want you to suffer' song."
Despite going all out on stage, Becca tells J-14 that she's actually really introverted! "Except, of course, around friends. I tend not to speak unless I really have something to say," she admits.
Becca doesn't mind getting measured up against strong rock chicks, saying, "Here's the thing about comparisons -- someone is always going to find another artist to compare you to because they need a way to describe "who you are like" to their friends. Avril Lavigne and [Paramore's] Hayley Williams are both very successful female artists, so I can take it as a compliment, but of course I hope to be different."
Even though she's from the U.S., Becca spent a ton of time on the road in Japan! She realized the one thing she has to have while touring is her iPhone. "I listen to music on it, read books on it, take pictures with it, and write songs on it -- it's quite a handy little piece of technology!" she says.
