Biography

Becker was born in Bay Shore, New York, raised in East Islip, New York, and began playing in coffeehouses while teaching music and taking opera lessons. Having graduated from James Madison University with a degree in communication, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1985, and signed to Sparrow Records as a songwriter; soon after she toured with Rick Cuaas a backup singer and sang on Steve Camp’s 1986 album One on One.

The next year she landed a contract as a solo artist, and released her debut album, Never for Nothing. The single “Fight for God” was her first hit, and her second LP, The Reckoning, followed with two more hits, “Light in the Darkness” and “Find Me”.

Becker began working with producer Charlie Peacock starting with 1989’s Immigrant’s Daughter, and a string of successful albums followed, including a Spanish language LP. She won two Dove Awards in 1992, for Rock Album (Simple House) and Rock Song (“Simple House”).
