“Pronsky is an allusive, poetic lyricist who isn’t interested in providing clear, linear meanings so much as impressions, dreams, and moods.”


“Rebecca Pronsky addresses the struggles of a generation attempting to get by. Over a propulsive beat and a wash of noirishly twangy guitars, Pronsky’s voice conveys the wisdom of experience without crossing the line into defeatist world-weariness.”


“TOP TEN COUNTRY ALBUMS OF THE YEAR. ★★★★ Enjoyable and beguiling. Rebecca Pronsky has a voice that’s full of character, sensitive and rich, and her songs are stimulating and catchy.”


“Rebecca Pronsky could probably sing the phone book and bring out subtle nuances in the listings with her penetrating voice. Her guitar-slinging husband Rich Bennett would throw in some rhythmic leads to bolster them too. The two of them, and a few friends, have been making beautiful music together on three albums (plus a few EPs and live disc) by using the best qualities of pure country and singer-songwriter styles.”

“Part Stevie Nicks, part confessional troubadour… Atmospheric influences bring out the full range of her lean expressive vocalising and the songs boast depth and panache.”

“Rebecca Pronsky knows her way around a metaphor, and though residing in Brooklyn, she sings like she has Nashville in her blood … She stands out above the sea of thoughtful women with guitars.” 

“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.”


“★★★★  This is ‘proper’ country music, not the sort that harks back to the past, but the sort that’s urban as it is rural, not afraid to be sophisticated… Pronsky is the complete package: interpreter, writer, singer and (together with guitarist Rich Bennett, whose licks and leads are a critical part of the music) producer. A great way to start the year.”

“★★★★  Some critics, it seems, have a hard time defining New York singer Rebecca Pronsky… She defies categorisation by combining the retro twang of an Absolute Torch era K.D Lang and the folkabilly narrative of Nanci Griffith with a dose of American noir a la The Handsome Family. But who cares, when the result is as brilliant as Only Daughter – a much darker but no less impressive follow-up to 2011’s Viewfinder.”

“Talented local folk-pop songsmith. Her writing is literate, passionate, and wry.”

“She’s a born and bread Brooklynite, but lately Rebecca Pronksy has had a little extra twang in her step. With slicker, ballsier vocals and jazzier progressions than your average folksinger, she bridges the gaps between folk, Americana, jazz and indie pop.”

“More retro than redneck… There’s some country flair infused into her lush folk style. Sounds like jazzy-folk female Chris Isaak.”
