Rebekah Reid is a vibrant and versatile violinist and loop pedal artist, specialising in classical and jazz repertoire as well improvisation and composition.
Reid experiments with loopers and effects pedals, drawing inspiration from artists such as Bach and Paganini, Eddie South, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus and Erykah Badu. Combining electronics with traditional classical string techniques, Reid crafts unique sound worlds with her violin and a tonal narrative that captures the listeners’ imagination.
Rebekah has performed her solo live loop pedal set across the UK, with performances at the Portico Library in Manchester supporting Matana Roberts and Kelly Jayne Jones, Manchester Art Gallery for Sofar Sounds, and the Royal Albert Hall – the Elgar Room, in March 2019 supporting Roxanne Tattei.
Rebekah also leads and manages TÄPP, a dynamic loop pedal music collective featuring collaborations with musicians from London and Manchester. TÄPP have featured on Worldwide FM, BBC Introducing, were runners up for the Nonclassical 'Battle of the Bands’ competition 2018 and Jazz North Artists 2018-2019.
