Smart Bets: Rebecca Pronsky

"Rebecca Pronsky could probably sing the phone book and bring out subtle nuances in the listings with her penetrating voice," said Blurt Magazine of the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter-guitarist. And Northern Sky said her sound is "as if The Smiths relocated to Nashville." Which is cool, but absurd, because just try to get a Smith to Asheville, let alone Nashville. Whereas Pronsky stops through fairly often (she comes to town on Monday, July 15 as part of her southern states tour). And when this reporter was in Scotland earlier this spring, Pronsky was playing there, too, making new fans and racking up frequent flyer miles.
