A born and raised Brooklynite, Rebecca Pronsky plays a sophisticated twangy folk that’s as urban as it is rural.
Her poetic lyrics and passionate, yet wry performances with her husband and lead guitarist Rich Bennett create a unique Americana sound that’s been described as “The Smiths relocate to Nashville.”
Rebecca's newest (and highly acclaimed) album, Only Daughter, is her most adventurous work yet...gritty and noir-ish, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre to forge something exciting and new.
In listing Only Daughter as one of its top 10 country albums of 2013, The Telegraph (UK) said “Rebecca Pronsky has a voice that's full of character, sensitive and rich, and her songs — many of which have a rare modern quality of being short and sharp — are stimulating and catchy.”
