Meet the Band

Rebekah Jean

Rebekah Jean is an original songwriter, born in Lake County, Ohio, 1985. After a couple of tours in two bands during and after college, and slinging her guitar around the coffee shops and tastemaker clubs of Cleveland, Rebekah Jean began working with Kent native David Mayfield, in the studio and on stage. When personal and artistic differences forced the two to part ways in late summer 2013, the young stage personality returned her attention to songwriting. When she isn't winning hearts from the honky tonk stage as lead singer of Duchess, Rebekah Jean is working out the details for recording her second album of original songs.

Anthony Eugene Papaleo

Anthony Papaleo is a guitarist and fiddler from Akron, Ohio. He has played guitar since he was a wee lad, learning from his earliest influence: his dad. He cites influences from the various genres of blues, ragtime, oldtime, and jazz. As the lead guitarist in Duchess, he concentrates on the chicken pickin' country style made popular by Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Brent Mason.
