"Part rebel, part pixie... without a doubt the best performer brought in all year." - washington & jefferson college, student news
"The impish Rebecca Hart has delighted audiences with her infectious stage presence and easy audience rapport. Backing Hart are the Sexy Children, three accomplished fusion musicians, providing rhythm for Hart’s rhyme, drawing on folk and funk foundations to inform their own unique style of rock n' roll." - Brooklyn Academy of Music / BAMCafe web site
Rebecca Hart was born into a theatre family and made her first stage appearance at nine months old. Last year, she accidentally won a comedy competition in Dublin ,Ireland, while appearing as the musical guest (audience vote). Hart's much-lauded stage presence is part of what makes the Sexy Children live show a memorable experience. The band members also come from a long tradition of live, 'jam band' shows and are well at home in front of an audience. We wanted to make this recording to bring this experience to new fans and show them where we truly shine. This sold-out, joyous, noisy gig at NYC's most celebrated listening room is a perfect example of this band at its best -- the songs are coming through pure and clear and the energy in the room is palpable. We hope you enjoy.
