The Singing Review Girl: Interview with Rebecca Mayes

For many the first exposure to Rebecca Mayes would have been her appearance on BBC show – Charlie Brooker’s Gameswipe. In it, she provided a soulful acoustic review of the Nintendo Wii game MadWorld.

Since the idea of marrying musical and video game reviews together came about, Mayes been kept busy through her work on gamespeople.com and more notably on the website The Escapist.

Taking time out to talk to Gamebrit she discussed how the idea came to fruition, how her album turned out and how she came to appear on Gameswipe.
