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 UK) She's a "poetic lyricist" (All Music Guide) who sounds "more retro than redneck" (Creative Loafing) with an onstage performance that is "passionate and wry" (Time Out NY).
Rebecca tours with husband/lead guitarist Rich Bennett who "puts the trimmings on the music with a battery of echo drenched, twangy leads" (Blurt). Rich's reverby guitar sound, along with Rebecca's strong vocals and rhythm tenor and acoustic guitars, have taken them everywhere from the Paradiso (Amsterdam), Triple Door (Seattle), Birchmere (DC), The Cluny (Newcastle), to Celtic Connections (Glasgow), and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (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."
