We are RebekkaMaria & The Hymnboy, but we’re not a band!
I’m known as RebekkaMaria (formerly ‘As In RebekkaMaria‘), but my real name is Rebekka Maria Andersson. Before I started my solo career I was lead singer in Lampshade.
I’m The Hymnboy, but my friends know me as Jonas Petersen. I’m lead singer in and founder of the band Hymns From Nineveh. Before that I was lead singer in Attrap.
We’re friends from way back, and given our different experiences in music, back in 2010 we decided to join forces in the intimate shape of duo concerts. We sang and played quiescent versions of songs from our respective piles of work, and it was all just fun and games, until we realized that these friendly duets actually gave new life to our songs; and thus RebekkaMaria & The Hymnboy emerged.
Our duo concerts are based upon vocal harmonies, piano, guitar and cello. We find it truly delicate, serene and zealous – and we’re happy to find that the critics feel the same way.
We’ve played in Rebekka’s home, at cathedrals, art galleries, jazz clubs and regular venues. Now we’re looking forward to play for you.
