Rebecca Lynn Howard

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Rebecca Lynn Howard shows off a big voice and some impressive songwriting chops on her self-titled debut. With a bit of ingratiating twang, Howard employs phrasing, timbre, and effects reminiscent of pop-country contemporaries Shania Twain, Trisha Yearwood, and Sherrie Austin. Howard has already created a stir with her songwriting, having had tunes cut by Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, and John Michael Montgomery, among others. Cowriting ten of the 12 songs on this disc, Howard focuses more on the feel-good aspects of love than the heartbreak, and that's fine -- she's only 20, after all, and there's plenty of time for learning how to cry in a beer. Still, exploring deeper feelings of newfound self-reliance in "I ...

Rebecca Lynn Howard shows off a big voice and some impressive songwriting chops on her self-titled debut. With a bit of ingratiating twang, Howard employs phrasing, timbre, and effects reminiscent of pop-country contemporaries Shania Twain, Trisha Yearwood, and Sherrie Austin. Howard has already created a stir with her songwriting, having had tunes cut by Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, and John Michael Montgomery, among others. Cowriting ten of the 12 songs on this disc, Howard focuses more on the feel-good aspects of love than the heartbreak, and that's fine -- she's only 20, after all, and there's plenty of time for learning how to cry in a beer. Still, exploring deeper feelings of newfound self-reliance in "I Don't Paint Myself into Corners" and "Move Me" she admits to a darker -- some would say more realistic -- worldview than her up-tempo songs suggest. If there are any doubters left after those two moments, check out her bluesy approach to heartache on the Tom Douglas-Harlan Howard gem "Melancholy Blue." Even more impressive is her own "Was It as Hard to Be Together," a honky-tonk torch song that finds Howard summoning a husky, sensuous tone in the verses before declaiming high and lonesome in the chorus as she kicks herself over an ill-considered breakup. Good work, and a good start for an artist with a lot going for her. David McGee
All Music Guide - Maria Konicki Dinoia
Influenced by the likes of power singers Reba McEntire, Michael Bolton, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey, it's easy to figure out that Rebecca Lynn Howard's debut album is going to have a sound that combines traditional country with contemporary pop. And at only 20-years-old, the singer/songwriter she wrote or co-wrote 10 of the album's 12 tracks has created a sound uniquely her own. Having been in the business since she was 10-years-old and written songs recorded by Reba McEntire, John Michael Montgomery, Patty Loveless and Lila McCann, you can hear her experience and stand-out vocals in "I Don't Paint Myself Into Corners" a ballad Rebecca received a standing ovation for at Fan Fair '99 even though the crowd wasn't familiar with her music. Rebecca Lynn Howard offers a little bit of country, a little bit of rock and roll and even some r&b and bluegrass combined to create a refreshing new sound for a refreshing new talent.

    Rebecca's CD is hot

    Rebecca is truly a talent among many mediocre new artists. I love country music but also enjoy many other types of music. I am glad to find an artist that isn't afraid of creating a wide range of music - it shows a very versatile artist. Everywhere you turn there are those that say we need to get back to only hard-core country but there are so few that will actually buy this level of country music that many artists feel the need to branch out to appeal to a much larger audience base. Rebecca has managed to put enough country on this CD to please country-music fans and yet there are some powerful ballads that make the CD enjoyable for non-country fans as well. Thanks for the great CD!
