Known for her searing tapping leads and heavy extended range riffs, Becca is a versatile shredder whose energy lights up her music. Originally a piano player from Portland, Maine, she gravitated to guitar at the age of 10, eagerly studying a wide variety of styles. A constant craving for heavier and more intense music eventually led her to progressive and death metal, but the influences of her eclectic training still shine through.
Becca attended Berklee College of Music, where she had the opportunity to study with Joe Stump and Don Lappin. She continued her studies after Berklee with Christian Muenzner (Eternity’s End, Alkaloid, Obscura, ex-Necrophagist).
After garnering some interest on the scene through her Youtube videos, she filled in on guitar with East of the Wall on their 2014 US tour. She also did a guest solo on Six Feet Under’s album Crypt of the Devil which was released in 2015. Currently, she tears it up with her band Total Party Kill, a progressive/death metal project based out of Portland, Maine.
Initially drawn to .strandberg* because of its ergonomic design, Becca has found them to be one of the most comfortable guitars she has ever played. The lightweight design and ease of playing on the EndurNeck™ played a key role in limiting her issues with tendonitis. That, paired with the incredible tone and beauty of the instrument, has made .strandberg* her extended range instrument of choice.
