Jazzata presents Rebecca Pronsky
April 11 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm£10 - £12
Rebecca Pronsky is a born and raised Brooklynite whose music confidently straddles the boundaries of country roots, jazz, rockabilly, and folk.
She creates a distinctive sound, which at times feels like The Smiths relocated to Nashville or Stevie Nicks singing with Ennio Morricone.
A singer since elementary school, Rebecca added song-writing to her repertoire around age 16 when she picked up the guitar for the first time. She went on to study Ethnomusicology and jazz at Brown University and came home to Brooklyn with a diploma and a demo CD.
She soon met musical compatriot Rich Bennett and the two hit the road together.
In over a decade of touring, Rebecca and Rich have criss-crossed the US and Europe sharing stages with Shawn Colvin, Loudon Wainwright III, Madeleine Peyroux, Peter Case, Josh Ritter, Freedy Johnston, Amy Rigby & Wreckless Eric, Patty Larkin, and Steve Forbert
“This Brooklyn native should be a household name as far as we’re concerned… on track to become one of America’s foremost modern folk songstresses.” BBC 6 Music
In 2015, Rebecca and Rich launched Acme Hall Studios, a recording studio and music education space in Park Slope, Brooklyn, where they teach, record, and inspire musicians of all levels.
Rebecca’s music has been featured on NPR Song of the Day, WFUV Sunday Breakfast, BBC Scotland, and BBC 6.
She has twice been a regional finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong competition and her songs have appeared on television shows such as Breaking Amish, Usta Usta, and 90210.
She recently appeared singing on an episode of NPR’s “This American Life.”
In 2013, Rebecca was honoured to have her album Only Daughter named a “Top 10 Country Album of the Year” by the UK’s The Telegraph, alongside Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle.
“Pronsky’s voice conveys the wisdom of experience…over a wash of noir-ishly twangy guitars.” – NPR
