  • “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) who “addresses the struggles of a generation attempting to get by (NPR). Her live performances are “passionate and wry” (Time Out NY) and feature a collaboration with husband and lead guitarist Rich Bennett who “puts the trimmings on the music with a battery of echo drenched, twangy leads” (Blurt). Together they create a sound that has been described as “The Smiths relocated to Nashville” (Northern Sky). Only Daughter is Rebecca’s newest album and is her third release on Austin’s Nine Mile Records. Her most adventurous work yet, the album is gritty and noir-ish, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre.”
  • Check Rebecca out at her official Website, Facebook, BandCamp, Twitter and Last.fm. She is touring behind her excellent new album, “Only Daughter” and hits Pittsburgh this Saturday with a good friend of the blog, Emily Rodgers. I want to thank Rebecca for taking a few minutes to participate in this edition of First/Last.
