Rebecca Pronsky is a born and raised Brooklynite who plays twangy folk that is as “urban as it is rural, not afraid to be sophisticated” (Maverick). She’s a “poetic lyricist” (All Music Guide) and sounds “more retro than redneck” (Creative Loafing) with an onstage performance that is “passionate and wry” (Time Out NY). NPR recently featured Rebecca’s song “Hard Times” on their ‘Song of the Day‘ program saying “her voice conveys the wisdom of experience” and “she addresses the struggles of a generation attempting to get by…over a wash of noirishly twangy guitars.”
The new album, Only Daughter, will be released March 19, 2013. It’s Rebecca’s 3rd release on Austin, TX label Nine Mile Records, sending her on tour on both east and west coasts and throughout the UK and Europe. The record is gritty and dark, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre.
