“Hey Dear” by Rebs ft. BAO

16 Mar 2021
Listen to “Hey Dear,” a new single by Rebs, produced by BAO. “Hey Dear” is an 80s-inspired tune written by 20-year-old indie artist Rebs. It tells the story of a mother missing a child who moved away. The song was inspired by Rebs’ own journey of leaving for college. Hope you like the new work and support Rebs in their musical adventures!

A couple months ago, I heard “Hey Dear” from a demo version that Rebs recorded and posted on Soundcloud. I liked the song so much that I asked if I could produce a version.

Rebecca Chan, also known as Rebs, is a 20-year old indie artist from Michigan who perpetually strives for intersectionality. As a queer, biracial artist, they seek to represent the nuance and complexity of a layered identity and existence. That nuance extends to their music, combining and blurring genres to create new sounds.

    Hey, that singer was way off-key in this song. I would suggest AutoTune or just getting a different vocalist, because while the instrumental is nice, the singing sounds really cringey. Just some honest feedback, because I doubt your friends will offer the same.

      Thank you for sharing your opinion. It’s too bad that this song, as a whole, is not for you. I happen to really like the sincere, unvarnished vocals. If you like very precise, in-tune pop music you should check out my other band Ming & Ping or this great song called “Friday” by an artist called Rebecca Black.

      Rebs is a biracial, queer Asian American who has worked hard to develop the artistry and courage to write, perform, and record this thoughtful and catchy song “Hey Dear.” Please feel free to share a link to your song.
