The Pretty Reckless
Formed around former T.V. actress turned hard-rocker, Taylor Momsen, The Pretty Reckless have come on strong to the rock scene since their debut album in 2010. With hard-hitting anthems such as Heaven Knows and Momsen’s modern-day Joan Jett persona, The Pretty Reckless are one of the premier hard rock bands, as they work on their follow up to 2016’s Who You Selling For. Momsen’s voice allows the group to crossover genre barriers from their prevailing hard rock tone, to soft-spoken acoustic tunes, found on tracks such as You. The band’s strong U.K. following has given them invaluable exposure on the international festival tour circuit and will surely grow with upcoming releases.
