BECKY BOYD

"Becky Boyd, a singer of such strength, she could make a lot of 'No Girls Allowed' signs get ripped off the clubhouse doors... She possesses a powerful blues/jazz voice that’s forceful, sensuous and as clear as spring water. If there’s a jazz buff in the Cleveland area who hasn’t heard Boyd sing yet, do something about that. She has got the art of scat singing down cold. Becky Boyd is a local talent to watch." - Steve Byrne, Scene Magazine

"Becky Boyd is a local pro, who makes the magic happen." - Harmonica Blue, Strange Brew Magazine

About Becky Boyd

Becky Boyd has been playing the Cleveland club scene for 40+ years. Her vocals are outstanding, combining great tone, with tremendous feel. In addition to singing with many bands over the years, Becky has opened for such acclaimed artists  as The Outlaws, Brownsville Station, Marshall Tucker Band, Fairport Convention, Buddy Miles, Robert Lockwood Jr., Billy Branch, Walter Trout, Chad & Jeremy and Todd Rundgren. A career highlight for Becky was singing backups for McKendree Spring at their reunion concert Memorial Day Weekend 2008 at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland Ohio.

Becky has been nominated several times as Best Vocalist & Best Female Vocalist in the Freetimes and Scene Magazine. Becky received the Best vocalist Award from the Cleveland Blues Society in 2018. 

She has recorded two CDs with her previous band Real Life, as well as studio work with many Cleveland artists.

In 2010, Becky joined up with blues guitarist Tim Matson and competed in the Memphis Blues Challenge, sponsored by the Cleveland Blues Society. Taking first prize in the Cleveland solo/duo category, they won the chance to compete against over 100 acts at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. Becky and Tim performed at the famous Orpheum Theatre and placed in the Top 8.
They recorded a CD titled "Becky Boyd & Tim Matson.”  

Her current band, Becky Boyd & The Groove Train, made their debut in January 2015. The band features bassist Alfredo Guerrieri, drummer Jim Wall and keyboardist Chris Hanna. Check the calendar to plan a date to see them at a venue near you.

More recently, Becky has joined forces with Kristine Jackson, Rachel Brown and Emma Shook, to form Sisters in Song - a group rich in harmonies, performing both covers and originals.

In addition to the acts listed above, you can also find Becky performing as a solo-acoustic act and in duos with Cleveland artists such as keyboardist Chris Hanna, Austin Walkin’ Cane, Kristine Jackson  and also has a duo with her daughter - Claudia Schieve.
