Musical careerEdit

BackgroundEdit

 
Rebecca & Fiona at Way Out West in August 2014

Stockholm born Rebecca Scheja and Fiona FitzPatrick, daughters of musicians Staffan Scheja and Greg Fitzpatrick respectively, met at a friend's house party and started to make music together in 2007. After a couple of years touring around Sweden as DJs, they made their public breakthrough in 2010 with the release of their first single "Luminary Ones". In the same year, the Swedish Public Service (SVT) presented the docu-drama Rebecca & Fiona. The awarded show was the network's first to be produced exclusively for the web and proved to be a massive hit.[2]

In 2011 their debut album I Love You, Man! was released, followed by the single "Bullets" and their second album Beauty Is Pain in 2014. Both albums won a Grammis for "Best Electro/Dance Albums".[3]

Contemporary careerEdit

In the past few years, Rebecca & Fiona have pursued more of a pop sound with singles like "Holler, Sayonara" and "Shotgun". After breaking free from a major record company, spring 2018 marks the release of their third album Art of Being a Girl.

"We're really aware of what we do. It’s important for women and young people. We stand up for what we think and believe, and we want to inspire people to do cool stuff and to not let anything hold them back. Look into yourself and discover what you want to do. That’s the way we live and make our music."

They released their first independent single, "Need You" in April 2018, followed by single "Fool's Gold" on May 18, 2018.

They performed with a T-shirt with the communist symbol hammer and sickle at Stockholm Pride 2018.[4]
