Meet songwriter, Becca Mancari, latest singing to Captured Tracks. And watch the video for her first single ‘Hunter.’
Mancari on ‘Hunter’ – “‘Hunter’ was born from a true story reflecting back on a person from my childhood in church who, later in my life, would send me frequent letters in the mail telling me to ‘repent’ and that I was a ‘nasty woman’ for the way I dressed and for the things I sang about. I received one of these letters the morning I planned to go into the studio with Zac Farro, and in that moment I sat down and wrote most of the lyrics, finishing the song in the studio that day. It is a song written from two people’s perspectives: one of course being the “Hunter” figure and the other from me, saying ‘you will never stop me’.”
This September, Mancari will open for longtime musical collaborator Brittany Howard in the US.
