Rebecka Edlund is a London-based Swedish singer, lyricist and composer with a soft spot for the ocean, anecdotes and rusty orange. Her music is a concoction of jazz and folk music traditions, whale song, bird whistles and other strange, beautiful sounds. She explores freely improvised story telling and contemporary song writing. 


Her debut album  'Något om en björk'  (Something about a birch tree) is a collection of little stories about the big world recorded with her quartet Oknytt and released under her record label Rebecka Aurora.


Rebecka graduated as a Gold Medal Finalist with first class honours from Trinity Laban Conservatoire where she studied a BMus in Jazz. Prior to that she studied a combined degree in Composition and Scandinavian Folk Music, specialising in traditional singing and herding calls, at the Music Conservatoire in Falun, Sweden.


Her music has been preformed at the London Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, King's Place, Green Note and many more renowned venues and festivals around Europe, together with esteemed musicians including Rob Luft, Mark Lockheart and Bruno Heinen. Rebecka is the singer in drummer Corrie Dick's  Sun Swells and in saxophonist Asha Parkinson's Kalpadruma Collective.


Rebecka will be joined by Laura Jurd on trumpet and Elliot Galvin on piano and synthesiser. Both have appeared at Listen! previously, Laura with Total Vibration and Corrie Dick's Sun Swells, while Elliot has performed with Mark Lockheart's Dreamers.
