ASHEVILLE, N.C. - May 3, 2018 - PRLog -- Singer and multi-instrumentalist Becca Stevens, along with special guest Cecily will perform at Isis Music Hall, 743 Haywood Rd., Asheville, NC on Friday June 15th, show time 7:00PM to 9:00PM.

The Beyond The Lyrics® Tour is a mini tour created as an extension of an award-winning musical entertainment television show created in 2013 of the same name. Beyond The Lyrics® is produced through the facilities of Arlington Independent Media in Arlington, VA.

North Carolina bred, Brooklyn based singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Becca Stevens has already received copious praise from the likes of The New York Times and Downbeat magazine, being named their 2017 Rising Star Female Vocalist. Drawing upon elements of pop, indie-rock, jazz, and traditional Appalachian folk, Stevens has been hailed for her unique ability to craft exquisite compositions both for her own band, and for artists who run the gamut of genre from the legendary David Crosby, to singer José James to classical pianist Timo Andres. Stevens has toured the world with her band and collaborated with the likes of: Brad Mehldau, Esperanza Spalding, Billy Childs, Ambrose Akinmusire, Jacob Collier, Vijay Iyer and many others. In 2015, Perfect Animal, the highly anticipated follow up to Weightless (Sunnyside), produced by engineer Scott Solter was released on Universal Music Classics. Becca's music is featured on the latest Snarky Puppy Family Dinner Vol 2. and she released her latest album Regina in March 2017 Featuring Laura Mvula, Jacob Collier, David Crosby and produced by Troy Miller (Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, Amy Winehouse) and Co-produced by Michael League of Snarky Puppy.

Regina is a tribute to strong women and figures in literature, history and legend as well as her personal life (Ophelia, Venus, Elizabeth I, her Grandmother) with various songs inspired by the regal and divine nature surrounding that word as well as Regina as a voice, like a trusted friend or an alter ego. Stevens' style has always evaded categorization, and with Regina, even more so. One hears pop, rock, R&B and funk side-by-side with traditional Appalachian and British folk, classical, world music, and jazz.

The innovative Japanese designer Koshiro Ebata (Lady Gaga, Dior, Louis Vuitton) designs the look for her album and videos. This is the first album under Becca Stevens rather than Becca Stevens Band and marks a clear new direction in cementing her career as one of the most important, authentic and talented singer songwriters of a generation.

Cecily brings her own vulnerability to each song, telling her story, and hopes that, at the end, the audience feels vulnerable enough to tell their own stories.

Cecily is a vocalist and songwriter whose sweet soprano and honest lyrics have garnered attention and loyal fans not only in her native Washington, DC, but also up and down the East Coast. Unmoved by passing trends, Cecily's sound is rooted in a deep appreciation for mid-century soul and jazz, 90's R&B, and re-imagined folk music. She has drawn comparisons to artists as distinct as Deniece Williams, Brandy, Corinne Bailey-Rae and Minnie Riperton.

Cecily has graced many stages and performed in front of audiences as large as 30,000. She has opened for Grammy Award winning jazz and soul artists Gregory Porter, R&B stars Johnny Gill, Kenny Lattimore, Elle Varner and alternative soul pioneer Bilal. Beyond her hometown, she's performed in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Richmond, Charlotte and New York City.

In her youth, Cecily spent more than ten years studying voice, primarily at the Peabody Institute, as well as singing in church and school gospel choirs, classical choruses, and a cappella groups. A 2012 graduate of Swarthmore College, with a degree in Political Science and Black Studies, Cecily's passion for performing and writing led her to make music her career.

Cecily's self-titled 2015 debut EP included work produced by legendary Grammy Award winning producer and arranger Benjamin Wright, and co-written by famed songwriter and singer Vaneese Thomas, as well as DC rap legend tabi Bonney.'s review of the EP described Cecily's work as "soothing and nostalgic."

Cecily is currently a Strathmore-Artist-in-Residence, releases her first full album on May 4th and will present her album release concert at The Strathmore Mansion on May 9th.
