ARTIST: Rebecca Roubion

SONG: “What Love Looks Like”

BIRTHDATE: June 5, 1987

HOMETOWN:  Mobile, AL (by way of New Orleans, LA).


AMBITIONS:  to master all accents, to write songs that impact people, tour worldwide, canoe Milford Sounds, open a cheesery called “{w}Holy Cheeses” (each whole, local cheese named after a spiritual guru – examples:  “Ghandi Goulda”, “Jesus Jack” “Muhammad Mozerella”, etc etc. I think it’d make a killing.

TURN-OFFS:  talking during a good film, cockiness, laziness, mediocrity, someone who disdains cheese or coffee.

TURN-ONS: appreciation of a good film, humility, ambition, dedication, intelligence, anyone who enjoys cheese and coffee.

DREAM GIG:  Sydney Opera House / Carnegie Hall.  I could die after that.

FAVORITE LYRIC:  currently? “Hope was a letter I never could send, well love was a country I couldn’t defend” – Gregory Alan Izakoff  (listening to his records as I type this now.)

CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW:  My best friend Lauren.  She’s a riot, a hilarious mess and when we talk, half of the conversation is constant belly laughs.

SONG I WISH I WROTE:  Jolene. Dolly Parton’s or Ray LaMontagne’s, for that matter.

5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH:  Man, tough one!  Tom Hanks, Deb Talon of the Weepies (my favorite band), the Pope, Eva Cassidy, Carole King, my parents and grandparents. So much wisdom!

MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE:  Bruce Hornsby – he makes me remember I have no right to touch the piano.

I WROTE THIS SONG: “What Love Looks Like”
