Country songstress Beccy Cole’s honeyed voice, glowing warmth and bawdy sense of humour have helped make her the real deal – a musician, working mother, a comedienne, an author and a flag-waving lesbian. In 2016, Beccy announced her engagement to jazz and cabaret chanteuse, Libby O’Donovan after meeting at Feast Festival 2012, Adelaide’s Pride celebration. Beccy and Libby are staunch campaigners for equal marriage and have vowed to tie the knot only when their own country will recognise their union. The deliriously happy couple have completed many successful tours together including the Helpmann nominated The Cowgirl and The Showgirl, a hilarious and clever production covering both singer’s preferred genres.
Beccyis a most sought after live performer with a reputation for bringing an audience to fever pitch and quite often, stomach-clutching laughter! With 10 Golden Guitars (Country Music Awards of Australia) to her name, including four for Female Artist of the Year, plus multiple ARIA Top 10 country and Top 40 mainstreamalbums, Beccy Cole is one of Australia’s most successful singer-songwriters.
