Rose’s Pawn Shop
Nominated in three categories for the 57th Grammy Awards, This band is armed with an arsenal of guitars, banjo, thumping upright bass, fiddle and drums, delivering neo-classical-sounding melodies and lyrics. Their sound is a wholesome mishmash of creek mud, rusty nails and your mom’s cookin’. It’s sincere, straight-forward and sexy, effortlessly combining such disparate musical styles as rock, country, bluegrass, and punk to create an incomprehensibly smooth and accessible sound for true believers and skeptics alike.
The duo is made up of singer-songwriters Jessie Payo and Leeann Skoda. They met on Valentine's Day 2014 at a bluegrass show and bonded over their mutual love of country music. They soon began doing shows together, playing original songs in addition to classic American folk and country. Pretty Polly is working on their first full length record that will be released later this year.
