One of the most positive and upbeat persons you’ll meet, Rebecca Binnendyk’s personality shines through on her upcoming debut album, Some Fun Out Of Life. This album is refreshingly eclectic in its song selections. American Songbook standards by, amongst others, Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael are given fresh life via Binnendyk’s supple, pure and versatile vocals, while her renditions of more contemporary tunes by Corinne Bailey Rae (“Put Your Records On”), Joni Mitchell (“Night Ride Home”) and Phil Collins (“You’ll Be In My Heart”) fit seamlessly alongside, as does the most left-field choice here, Bon Jovi’s hit “You Give Love A Bad Name”. As the title suggests, the mood is predominantly light and upbeat, making for a fun listening experience. Binnendyk is a new talent to watch very closely.

It features fresh reworkings of standards and hits from songwriters ranging from Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael to Joni Mitchell, Phil Collins, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Bon Jovi, plus two new and emotionally eloquent original compositions. The classically-trained vocalist possesses a fluid and pure singing style and receives ace accompaniment here from an A-list band of Toronto players (including horns and strings), all produced with clarity by John ‘Beetle’ Bailey. As the title suggests, the mood here is predominantly light and upbeat, making for a fun listening experience.
