Becca Caffyn


Originally hailing from Hamilton, Becca Caffyn has always had a deep intrigue for the world around her. Raised in a yellow house in the suburbs, she grew up having visions of one day living in large cities, travelling the world, and performing to crowds of her own.

Caffyn spent her early teen years competing around New Zealand’s country music circuit, taking inspiration from Red-era Taylor Swift and Kacey Musgraves; before being introduced to the music of Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell at the age of 15. Something clicked, and she felt the pull to start developing her sound; leaning on the storytelling and instrumentation of folk music from the 60's and 70's. Caffyn started writing her own songs, keenly chasing down whatever musical avenues she could find.

After leaving high school, Caffyn was handpicked to join an Artist Development programme at Parachute Music. She packed her bags for Auckland and spent a year in the studio honing her songwriting, working towards her debut collection of recordings. Caffyn enlisted the help of producer Will McGillivray (There’s A Tuesday, BEXY), and got to work recording the The Replacement Blonde EP.

On debut single Stair Kids, she explores themes of restlessness and nostalgia, saying, “it’s about leaving the party when it’s over for you; accepting the natural progression of friendships and realising that, as much as you’ll always love them, sometimes you grow out of the people you grew up with.” With layered guitars and delicate vocals, the song builds to an ear-worm of a chorus, detailing teenage nights with “grazed knees” and second-hand smoke.

A keen and observant writer, Caffyn delves into moments from everyday life; peering into the intricacies of how we relate to ourselves and others. Along the way, her influences have grown to include the indie-pop sensibilities of Phoebe Bridgers, Maggie Rogers and Julia Jacklin; melding a fascination with words, with introspective bedroom folk.

At 19 years old, Becca Caffyn writes with prescient clarity; crafting honest lyrics and gentle melodies that speak to her own experiences, all in the hope that they can resonate with the experiences of others too.
