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). "Pronsky's voice conveys the wisdom of experience" (NPR) and her live performances are "passionate and wry" (Time Out NY). Only Daughter, Rebecca's newest album, will be released in March 2013. Her most adventurous work yet, the album is gritty and noir-ish, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre.
"Where has this guy been hiding? In the library, maybe." (Jim Blum, NPR's Folk Alley, Best of 2012)
