The highly anticipated non-profit M3F Fest music festival takes place this weekend in Phoenix, Arizona, and Becky Hill is primed to put on the performance of a lifetime.
The BRIT Award-winning singer-songwriter is easily one of the biggest artists working today, writing smash hit after hit, taking part in countless epic collabs and nabbing awards left and right. She‘s written and performed on 18 U.K. Top 40 singles and has 13 Platinum records, six Golds and four Silvers to her name, and in 2021, she was the third most-listened British female solo artist on all of Spotify, behind only Dua Lipa and Adele.
On Friday, March 3, Becky will take the stage at M3F fest, joining a stacked lineup also including Maggie Rogers, Polo & Pan, Quinn XCII and so many more, with 100% of festival proceeds going to charity. There are a million reasons to be obsessed with her, and ahead of the festival, here‘s everything she shared about herself as our latest Woman Crush Wednesday.

Name: Rebecca Claire Hill
Hometown: Bewdly, Worcestershire, England
Birthday: February 14
1. As one of the performers at this year‘s M3F Festival, she‘s super excited to visit Phoenix, Arizona, for the first time.
“I have never been, and I‘ve always wanted to go. I‘m really excited to see what the place has to offer and to see what the crowds are like.“
2. She loves seeing a crowd get lost in her performances.
“I was once doing a gig at a university, and all of a sudden, halfway through the gig, there was a young person in a wheelchair that got lifted up and was crowd surfing, having the time of their life. it was the most heartwarming thing I‘ve ever seen. I brought them right to the front and watched them have a great, great, great gig.“
3. She‘s the youngest child of five.
“I‘ve always been looked after quite well, and everybody‘s kind of taken care of me and made sure I‘ve been okay. But with that comes quite a clumsy person. I‘m very clumsy, and I could never really be trusted to do certain stuff, which has kind of followed me around. My family still thinks I can‘t do things properly, so I‘ve had to learn how to have the confidence to do stuff on my own and be an adult.“

4. Kelis is one of her biggest heroes.
“I think what she has done in dance music has been incredible, and she was doing the female dance artist before a lot of people were. Her music is incredible and very forward-thinking and still sounds really fresh to this day. To see what a woman can do in dance music, but particularly a Black woman in dance music can do, and be as fearless as she was, is a real inspiration for me and many other people.“
5. She‘s also a huge Bon Iver fan.
“I found their music when I was 13 years old, and I was hooked. I‘ve been to see them in concert two or three times now, and I absolutely love them.“
6. If she weren‘t a musician, she‘d love to work at a doggy daycare.
“There‘s a doggy daycare just down the road from me, and sometimes when I have a day off, I sit there for hours playing with all of the dogs.“

7. She doesn‘t follow style trends much, and her own style is inspired by the dress-up games she played as a little girl.
“I love dressing up in everything sparkly, fun, and feathery. Anything that has some sort of texture to it, I love wearing it.“
8. Her current favorite pieces of clothing are her wide-leg, high-waisted jeans in various colors.
“I love the idea that they go really long down my leg. When I was a kid, my sister used to come home with her long flared jeans, and they were wet all the way up to her knees because they would drag along the floor and suck up all the puddles, and I definitely live that life, too.“
9. She‘s always wanted to learn to drive.
“I never got the chance to learn when I was a kid, and now, I would love to learn to drive so I could buy myself a classic car like my mom used to have.“

10. Her biggest guilty pleasure is wasting time playing The Legend of Zelda games.
“I‘m a big Zelda fan, and the sound of the fairy cave is actually my ringtone. I would have to say I‘m a huge gamer—that is my guilty pleasure!“
11. Becky says at her core, she‘s all about honesty.
“I am incredibly honest—sometimes too honest. I try my best to think before I speak, but I sometimes struggle doing that. I would definitely say honesty and speaking from the heart are probably my biggest blessing and my biggest curse.“
