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 CONCEPT ALBUM THAT IMAGINES THE INNER WORLD OF HILLARY CLINTON IN THE WEEKS FOLLOWING THE ELECTION.


ABOUT THE NEW RECORD:

After the election, Hillary Clinton all but disappeared. During those silent few months, I wondered what Hillary was feeling and thinking, how she was coping. I began writing songs from her point of view, an inner monologue of her life during that mysterious time.

The result is "Witness: Hillary's Song Cycle": a new album I will be recording and producing this summer. In "Witness" we follow Hillary as she goes for walks in the woods, wrestles with the voices of her doubters, dances in her living room barefoot, and swears... a lot. Her monologue travels from disbelief to depression, rage to grief, and acceptance to hope.

This record is about women and our struggles to be heard, known, trusted, believed. It is also about how the world is fundamentally changing, regardless of who is president. Hillary's story is our story. 

AN ALL FEMALE CREATIVE TEAM:

One of the best things about the new album is that the creative team will be ALL female. I've assembled a dream team of female talent and I could not be more excited about that.  "Witness" features musicians Mary Feaster, Viva DeConcini, Deidre Rodman Struck, Heather Wagner, recording engineer Kerry Pompeo, with original artwork by Brooklyn artist and illustrator Megan Piontkowski.

RECORDING & RELEASE:

"Witness" will be recorded in July. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, I was able to raise the funds necessary for the project. I plan to have it released in September.
