Rewth is a 23-year-old singer/songwriter born and based in Costa Rica. Her artistic skills began to show at a very tender age, but her musical side was kept undercover until her high school years. At that time, she began losing her fear of singing in public and learned, by herself, to play the acoustic guitar. Shortly after that, inspired by bands such as Eisley, Newsboys and Mutemath (her “musical trinity”, as she likes to call them) she would start composing her own original songs and experimenting with some DAWs in order to record them. At the age of 15, she was already convinced she wanted to pursue a musical career, and against all the odds, she kept on learning, writing, composing and recording. She studied musical composition and arrangement at VonKelemen School for two years, and in her second year there, she started plans for professionally recording an EP for public release. On January 2019, she began recording her project at Sweet Home Studios (Escazú, Costa Rica) alongside music producer Ale Fdz (who has also produced projects for artists such as Entrelineas, Fuego, Avi, Majo León, Sebas Guillem, Geancarlo Calderon, and many others). Rewth has composed about 50+ original songs to this day, five of those can be heard on her first EP "Kaleidoscope" released on 6/21/19. Also, she's currently leading worship at La Viña del Este (Montes de Oca, Costa Rica), where she has found a faith community to belong, and a loving place to share her musical and spiritual gifts.
To me, music is a way to people's hearts. It's a type of language. It has given me so much throughout my life, there have been songs that have deeply touched my soul, that have gotten me through rough phases and problems, some other songs have always inspired me to be better and to create.
My music dream? Well, I guess mine is to create music that can be relevant to someone at a specific moment in time (and why not? maybe relevant through their whole life!). To compose songs that are gonna be there with people when their heart aches, when they need peace, when they want to reconnect with God, when they've lost hope and want to be inspired once again. I want to do what other musicians have (unconsciously or indirectly) done for me through their art.
With myself... that's where the change begins, one cannot aim to change the world without first aiming at our own selves :)
I have a bunch of them, and the list would go on and on, but the ones that came into my mind right when I read the question were: - "Alabayeye" by 95Norte (This one was my first favorite song, I think I was 1-2 y/o at the time) - "It Is You" by Newsboys (I loved this song! Little I knew this band was gonna have a huge impact and influence on me in my adolescence and for the rest of my life)
Bands: MUTEMATH, Newsboys (The Peter Furler era and the John James era), Eisley, Earthsuit, and Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil, The Marías. Artists: Peter Furler, Paul Meany, Stacy DuPree-King, Steve Taylor, Alice Phoebe Lou, Helado Negro.
Being able to create new and beautiful sounds, to see a song being born and grow up to be released and played live... but mainly God and what He does in/with my life is what inspires me to make music :)
The one the listener is needing at the specific time he/she is playing my music. It could be empowerment, love, hope, peace, relaxation... anything positive.
Quite nervous, but I also feel excited and free? it's hard to describe my exact feelings when I'm on stage!
I think it's a great tool for us newbies out there, that are trying to be discovered and heard. Also, it's cool to have a social network special for musicians where we can support and help each other, and share our work with the community as well ?
