"Me" aka Rebecca Newton, has been labelled “The Triangle’s Impresario” by NC-based journalist Jack Bernhardt. She cut her musical teeth on show tunes and vaudeville as a young child in the late '50s and early '60s. Her first LP was a 78, which her Grandmother bought for her after a birthday dinner in Seattle, WA. At the fresh age of 4, she witnessed Barber Shop Quartet of banjo- and ukulele-playing, pinstriped suit-wearing men with straw hats singing impeccable harmonies. The record was a 78rpm live recording of Sophie Tucker, which Rebecca still owns.
David Burney grew up in Leland, NC, where he cropped tobacco, played baseball and listened to his parents album collection. While his father preferred the classic country songs of Buck Owens, Hank Williams, Hank Snow, Johnny Cash, and Roger Miller, his mother leaned towards the R&B greats – Sam Cooke, Fats Domino and Chubby Checker. To David, it was all simply great music.
