The latest songstress to emerge from the Nashville CCM scene mixes pop and acoustic styles for a rootsy experience reminiscent of the music of Carolyn Arends. Beccah has made a smooth transition from session backing singer to in the spotlight performer, turning in an assured sparkling debut. At the boppy end of the album, "Tell Me Where Your Love Comes From" is a catchy piece of pop and the album's opener "Hands Tied" is a groovy acoustic rock song of surrender. The title song and the haunting "Love Looks A Lot Like You" take us firmly into Arends territory with a variety of rootsy sounds - dulcimer, violin, light percussion, etc, undergirding strong moody songs. Two songs stand out, Billy Batstone and Matt Huesmann's song "He Will Build A Bridge", a powerful ballad. The latter portrays the way in which God pulls us back to him when we stray. In a scene where there seem to be so many female singer/songwriters, Beccah Jackson has the talent and the debut album to make an impact.

Tell the family that I said hello. I know Judy, my sister has your CD, butt my family does not. If anyway possible, Please let me know if you can COD me one to Moms, Judy's or my home. Patric has listened to it for the last few days while he is going through a rough time in his life and it has carrying a whole lot! Trust me you and the songs has inspired him to get his life straight. I tell him when life is not going good, pull out your computer and just listen. I would love to have the D for him to carry around. This seems to help him when tempted with the world. I miss you all and so wished you were back here. Please try and find a way to send me a CD and send it COD if you need to. I just want to keep Patric, and myself and the family to have some inspirational music that inspires them and that will help keep them in God's word.
Thank you and God Bless you, Bro. Randall and children.

Hi Becca,
I heard you in concert with Kathy Triccolli some years ago and I became an instant fan. I have listened to your your tape, "It'll sneak up on you for years and it continues to be my favorite." I have been waiting for you to record more. Your music is so meaningful and touches peoples hearts. Please continue to bless us.

Heyyyy Becca!
I saw you do a mini concert in Houston, TX put on by KSBJ radio station there. It was called a 'Brown Bag Special' and was done at a shopping mall at lunch time. lol
KSBJ played 'Hands Tied' a lot and I fell in love with it and drove way across town to hear you sing and see how you played the guitar on it. I did learn to play it and the youth at church and the high school thought it was a great song too. I played your cd at the school when I was subbing and the kids would comment on how much they liked the music and want to know who it was. I have bought every one of your cds I could find and have given them to friends and relatives.
Your song 'It'll Sneak Up On You' is such a GREAT song!! It provided me with many a reality check when I needed it and still does!
What happened to your cd? How come we can't get it anymore? People need to hear the message in all those songs! OMGsh...'You're My Rock' is such a great song of comfort and encouragement. The way you did it was just perfect! I figured out how to play it, but could never play and sing it at the same time. lol Awesome song! Your song 'He Will Build A Bridge' is a favorite also. Girl, that whole cd is just so relevant and full of wisdom for believers and the gospel for the lost. It just couldn't have been put together any better! Is there any chance it will be available again? I would buy a bulk order!
I hope you are well and blessed. Are you still doing any concerts or singing engagements? Please let me know.
Thanks from a 'kindred spirit'.
Lynette Korpita :)

I am so glad to have found someplace with some information! Becca, your album is so meaningful and thought provoking. I selfishly pray that your ministry will grow so that I can learn more from your insights in the Lord through your songs. I have been looking all over for another copy of "It'll Sneak Up on You". I had a tape cassette which was eaten because I listened to it so much! That also tells you how long I've been a fan. I haven't been able to listen to it for three or four years now and I was hoping to find somewhere online I could order it. Do you have a website? How can I get another copy of this album? Thank you for your ministry; it has touched so many.

God Bless,
Jenny Gary

Re: Posts here.
So sorry to hear about Chris. He was very special and not sure if we knew about the funeral before it happened. I don't think any of my music is downloadable.
Randall will be at Leesburg for Homecoming, but we won't make it.
Also, to Tonya, I will try to find a CD (we have moved recently) and get you one. Please let me know how I can contact you. Sorry about your losses in Katrina. I know that was very trying.
And finally, my Tracy, I have thought of you so often. Please respond and let's get back in touch. I miss you. Remember our book?????????? :)
Love to you all,

dear becca,

i have been trying to find a way to contact you for some time now. all roads were dead ends.
your album is great. others have asked about why nothing new, and i don't see that you addressed that.
why did you seemingly disappear after that recording? I hope you are well.
i have written a song that i wondered if you would consider.

sincerely, kevin.

Ms. Jackson,

I first came across your album at a prior GMA/Dove awards week some years ago. My wife and I have never forgot the music and would like to find another copy of your album. Of all things... are you ready for this... our dog ate the only copy I had. Which would stand to prove that our dog has good taste in music.

However, that still leaves us without one of our favorite albums.

You music has touched both of us and I would like to know how I could bless your ministry by buying another copy or two.

Please send an address and cost of the album to

Craig Richards

Can someone, please, help me? "It'll Sneak Up On You" was one of my FAVORITE CDs and I lost it in Hurricane Katrina. I have searched high and low, including area Christian book stores and online and cannot find this CD ANYWHERE! I want to replace this CD more than you can imagine. Please, PLEASE, tell me where I can purchase this CD!

Miracles & Blessings!
