If you haven't heard of Becca Richter that could soon change.
The granddaughter of Sturgeon Bay's Jerry and Lucy Richter has been making a steady mark on the music scene, earning a 2012 WAMI "Rising Star" nomination and winning "Video of the Year" in Season 3 of Teenage Rockstar.
Her first album, "Little Things," was recorded in Sturgeon Bay at the Holiday Music Motel Studio.
Although the 19-year-old singer-songwriter penned her first song when she was just 7 years old, she tells DoorCountyDailyNews.com it took her a while to convince herself that she could be a singer.
The Waukesha native says the recording of her first album at the Holiday was memorable, working with the likes of pat mAcdonald, melaniejane and Grammy-nominated sound engineer Billy Triplett.
Richter says her writing process is a bit different for each song. She says one song ("The Ground I Walk On") even came to her in a dream.
Richter (www.BeccaRichter.com) says her musical style is still evolving, but she describes it as a "singer-songwritery" mix of indie, acoustic, pop, country and jazz. She says some of her biggest influences have been John Mayer, Taylor Swift and Christian artist Francesca Battistelli.
Richter is currently a freshman at the University of Mobile in Alabama where she's a worship leadership major. (And yes, she's in the school choir.)
She says she'll be back in Sturgeon Bay in June to perform at the Steel Bridge Songfest.
