We arrived home from the UK two days ago (more about the tour later). For the return flight, we got upgraded to business class — best end to a tour ever!! Having never flown that way, I have to say the Seinfeld episode is pretty close to the truth. We were served ice cream sundaes with fudge; there was a wine list, plus crab cakes, cloth napkins, the whole bit. Wow.
So the new album Only Daughter is out and is pulling in radio support in the US. So far its getting spun on WERU, WMBR, WRIU, WFUV, WFDU, WFMU, WVIA, WRRW, WRUW, The Bridge, WRUW, WDVX, WFIV, WEFT, WMSE, KCHO, KLCC, KBCS, KPFA. Call in and request. More stations being added all the time!
Don’t have Only Daughter yet? Get a copy via Amazon, Nine Mile Records, Proper (in the UK) or at a record store near you. Or download it digitally via iTunes, eMusic, or Bandcamp. The album is also up on Pandora now, along with my last two full length records. You can start your own Rebecca Pronsky station that way.
STAYING LOCAL: NYC folks, we’re playing next Thursday in Brooklyn at the Rock Shop with the wonderful Freedy Johnston and then I’m the musical guest at a great reading series the following Wednesday in Manhattan.
WEST COAST TOUR: begins May 5 with stops in Seattle, Portland, Eugene, Roseburg, Redding, Sonoma, and San Francisco (dates and venues below)! I’m very excited to get back out west. It’s been more than a year and I got a hankering for the pacific breeze… and a mission burrito.
US BAND TOUR: I’m taking the full band on the road in July to Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio and Pennsylvania (dates and venues here)!
UK TOUR RECAP
March’s UK tour was one of my favorite tours I’ve done. The weather was freezing, but the audiences were warm and attentive. Aside from the music, we visited some beautiful places and ate good food. Check out the UK tour photo album. While we were over there, a number of very positive live reviews of our shows came in, most notably in No Depression, Bristol Post, Scotland Herald, and Fatea. We also had three excellent album reviews in national papers: Telegraph, Daily Mirror and Scotland Metro. Exciting! We are tentatively penciling in summer of next year for our return, hopefully during nicer weather and to include a festival or two.
Oh yes, and our music video for “Better That Way” is in process and will be out soon! In the meantime, here a video of us playing our most rocking song “The Garden” at a UK show.
Thank you for supporting the new record and for your notes of encouragement.
