About Me

New-England treasure Becky Bass is known for her “euphoric steel pan playing, soulful voice, and powerful stage presence, on and off camera. A native of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, Bass utilizes her talent to highlight Caribbean music’s evolution through human necessity and resilience, and share the complex history of Caribbean music and its influence on the U.S.” A 2013 graduate of Brown University in Theatre Arts & Performance Studies, Becky received Brown’s Weston Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre, is now a two-time New England Urban Music Award winner & RI Motif Award winner, and can be heard while performing her Caribbean Soul music solo as well as with several bands all over the New England area, such as Zili Misik, Natural Element, and Sidy Maiga & Afrimanding. She also lends her musical talents to Rhode Island’s RPM Voices, a cross-cultural, multi-generational gospel choir led by Dr. Clarice Thompson and Delbert Collins, as a soloist, musician, and youth choir director. Since the start of her career, she has performed in many professional theaters across New England as well as in a few films, TV shows, and commercials, including a national commercial with Kohl’s & Hulu, a regional commercial for AAA, and most recently, a speaking role in the show Julia on HBOMax. Favorite Regional Credits: Ain’t Misbehavin (Armelia McQueen); A Night with Lady Day (Billie Holiday); Hairspray (Motormouth Maybelle); RENT (Mrs. Jefferson/Blanket Lady); Aida (Nehebka). Becky has had the opportunity to open for and perform with many international artists, including Emmy Award-winning composer/performer Daniel Bernard Roumain, Grammy Award-winning vocalist Oumou Sangare and violinist Damien Escobar, Yellowman, Warrior King, and Wyclef Jean. She also has performed at the National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.), New York City’s Lincoln Center, Chicago’s Underground Wonder Bar, and Off-Broadway theater LaMaMa. During her free time, she teaches music & theatre to students every chance she gets because she believes giving back and mentoring youth are extremely important aspects of being an artist in the community. She extends so much gratitude to her family and friends for their continued love, support, and care.
