I first met Rebecca Correia while performing at Turks in 2011. Even back then I knew she had a special sound that was rare among local performers.
I snapped a photo of her performing, shared it on her Facebook wall, and we’ve been “friends” ever since.
Last night I had the good fortune of participating in a workshop Rebecca hosted for a half a dozen aspiring songwriters. Not only did I learn a lot about songwriting, but I also got a private performance of her newest song Solid Ground which was a collaboration with one of my favorite “Bluesmen” Keb Mo.

The song became available for download on iTunes at midnight last night and the video was released today. I just saw the video and immediately knew that it belonged on My Buzzards Bay.
The video opens in Mattapoisett on Ned’s Point and features sailing on The Tabor Boy and a musical performance at Tabor Academy in Marion.
I think this would be a good time to see it…
Not only is the music and imagery stunning, but if you stick around for the credits, you’ll also see that the 50% of the proceeds for downloading the song on iTunes goes for a very good cause – Limbs For Life which provides prosthetic care for amputees.
Finally, if you make it to 4:37 into the video, you’ll find the following special thanks for some guy named David Horne
Coincidence? I think not!
Please watch the video, buy the download and show Rebecca your appreciation for her talent and casting Buzzards Bay in such a beautiful light…
