Biography

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 sounds “more retro than redneck” (Creative Loafing), “like The Smiths relocated to Nashville” (Northern Sky). On stage her performances are “passionate and wry” (Time Out NY) and “near electric” (Birmingham Mail).

Only Daughter (out March 19, 2013) is Rebecca’s 3rd release on Austin, TX label Nine Mile Records. The album was produced by Rebecca’s husband and guitarist Rich Bennett and recorded and mixed by friend and collaborator Scott Solter. Together, Bennett and Solter help create a record that is gritty and dark, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre.

However it is still Pronsky that anchors the sound. In praise of her last record (2011′s Viewfinder) NPR said “her voice conveys the wisdom of experience” and “she addresses the struggles of a generation attempting to get by.” This couldn’t be more true than on Only Daughter, which delves deeper into the territories of self-judgment, forgiveness and personal change amidst a conflicting and strange time in the life of a nation.
