Underground Profiles: Rebecca Zimmerman.
The spry 21 year old, Rebecca Zimmerman brought her folk sounds to the Original Slacker podcast. Zimmerman, who first appeared in the Underground playing before comic book band, the Stereotytans’, found her passion while exploring the cliffs of Ireland. Rising to the occasion of doubters, Zimmerman wrote 10 songs before returning home.
Zimmerman’s lyrics complement the introspective mindset she maintains in her career focus. A soon-to-be graduate of Arcadia College, Zimmerman always looked for a way to fuse her passions of understanding the mind with music. She discovered autistic patients’ ability to focus through singing songs which led her down the path to develop music therapy to assist patients.
Zimmerman credits her interest in folk to such inspirations as Bob Dylan and Angus and Julia Stone. Mild and composed on the outside, her music tends exudes a strong sense of conviction. “I’ve been lacking domestication, I’m moving again, I’m shifting my friends” go the lyrics of ‘Empty Spaces.’ In her music, she molds together layered stories inclusive of both direct and assumed meanings creating greater depth to each song.
