Hesta Prynn's got a new EP out (hint: it's really good), and she's jumping straight off tour with Tegan and Sara into Mercury Lounge for a headlining show all her own later this month. Do you want both the disc and the tickets? I thought so...thus, some lucky kids are getting in on the good stuff!

Recap, Playlist, Archive: Sheena Beaston on East Village Radio with Hesta Prynn, Fam & Friends

On Friday, we started our (and hopefully your) weekend off with a bang by doing what we do. And what we do, is occasionally fill-in on East Village Radio for our pal Jason, during his Accidental Rhythm show. In case you weren't tuned in (in which case....psssshhaw on you!), here's what went down.



With a last minute "hey girl hey, can you come on down and dish out some tunes" request, there wasn't enough hours in the day for me to get my ish together and do something super rad. But that's where friends, family and the fantastic Hesta Prynn came to the rescue. Pop-ins from my friend Samantha, my sister and her husband (check out their band) and the former Northern State singer all helped make the show a robust beast of a two-hour shindig.


I also announced that my own show will be starting this week on July 15, and it's gonna happen on the regular, every Thursday from 8-10pm! (more on that later) And there was music. Good stuff too. Including No Mercy's Where Do You Go. THAT's how we roll.

Hesta Prynn Free Gig at The Studio: February 27

A few weeks ago, I dropped a little doozy of a tune in my morning roundup. The response to Hesta Prynn's Can We Go Wrong was fairly amazing, whenceforth, I decided to flesh out a fuller feature on the former Northern State member.


After playing Pianos last month, Hesta Prynn gives fans another chance to get a taste of what to expect from her upcoming record.

Formerly of the hip-hop group Northern State, Hesta Prynn is putting the final touches on her first solo album, due out later this year.  Produced by Chuck Brody (Lykke Li, J.Lo, Ra Ra Riot and Wu Tang Clan) with help from Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara, and Eric Gardner (Gnarls Barkley) providing drums, Hesta’s new record pits euphoric beats and distorted bass lines with punkish guitar overlays to create and energetic, edgy sound.

Prynn plays The Studio at Webster Hall on Saturday, February 27. The 19+ show starts at 8pm and it's free with your RSVP here.
