About Beckon Q
In November of 2006, Chicago-based singer-songwriters Becky Johnson and Lukas Quanstrom teamed up to form the band “Beckon Q”. Their beginning marked a unique formation of a double front man, male and female approach to the stage that capitalized on their acoustic roots and strong vocal compatibility. Becky’s soft, melodic approach combined with Lukas’ rhythmic and emotive style creates Beckon Q’s unique blend. Beckon Q has just released their debut album, “Your Chance” which is available on itunes and follows a slew of shows including opening for Mandisa from American Idol and Toby Mac at House of Blues Chicago, Need to Breathe, Starfield, Chris Young, and the Wreckers. They have since added Nathan Ykema as a full-time member on bass guitar and Scott Dalheim on electric guitar. Nate’s bass training includes working with Victor Wooten during his 10 years of experience. Scott pulls experience from his previous work with Escape from Earth as well as studio work over the past 6 years of his music career. Currently, Chris Ellison plays drums for the band, having stopped working on many side projects to focus solely on the backline of Beckon Q.
