Rebekah Higgs (born May 19, 1982) is a Canadian indie rock singer, songwriter from Halifax, Nova Scotia.[1]


She released her debut self-titled album in September 2006, recorded in Toronto with producer Thomas Payne of the Canadian band Joydrop.[2] The album was written and performed entirely by Higgs and Thomas and is a fusion of shoegaze, folk and pop. In 2007, Higgs released her album on Outside Music and was nominated for the 2008 East Coast Music Awards, as best female solo recording and best new artist.

Higgs tours Canada frequently with guitarist Jason Vautour, bassist Sean MacGillivray, and keyboardist Colin Crowell. All four musicians also perform in the dance pop group Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees.
