Besides her Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology, Rebecca Aadland holds a Bachelors Degree in Music, specializing in voice and music education. She has been playing guitar and writing songs for over 40 years. She is currently working with several musicians and a skilled engineer, recording songs for her second album in a professional studio. From 1985 to 1999, Rebecca taught music and conducted high school choirs in Minnesota public schools.

Rebecca’s focus has been to write and perform songs that matter. Her edgy lyrics seem to resonate with a variety of people and age groups. There is much in her songs for the broken hearted, those seeking love again, those that dare to look closer at themselves & spiritual seekers that defy tradition. Rebecca Aadland’s album, Foreign Soul, includes the talents of eleven Minnesota musicians providing instrumentation on guitars, keyboard, cello, mandolin, harmonica, bass, percussion. Some of Rebecca’s songs may be purchased on iTunes or CD Baby.

“Through the development of her own musical gifts, Rebecca Aadland intuited what health researchers are finding: music is powerful beyond its ability to delight us—it can actually affect the way we perceive the world. Rebecca’s artistic journey through an intimate emotional landscape charts a course available to all of us—to navigate, via creative gifts, our own personal passage to understanding and growth.”
