Becca Mancari first brought her raw grit to The Mill stage during Mission Creek 2019, and in support of her upcoming album, we are excited to welcome her back to Iowa City this fall. Since her music is the landscape of all she’s seen, her upcoming debut album, Good Woman evokes the sound of city grit and the mountain music of her youth, swirling into a fresh, nostalgic sound. It’s these planetary frontiers, along with the powerful fragility in her voice, that make Mancari’s music stand beyond easy categorizations. Perhaps more striking than Mancari’s sound is the tender honesty and vulnerability present in each of her songs. Her strong sense of self enables her to be a spokeswoman to the outcast and the misfit, helping her redefine the categories that so often divide people.
