Josefina Asconapé is a singer-songwriter based in Chicago, care of Buenos Aires. Her first releases as a leader find her simple, airy vocal stylings paired with alt-country production that would have found an easy home on Asylum Records in the 1970s. The live show is chock full of that classic folk rock vibe thanks in no small part to a B-Bender and a 12-string electric guitar. But this isn’t a throwback to Joni or Emmylou. This is a modern girl making music with a scant twang, catchy choruses, and an infectious lightness of being. Look for a full LP release in 2016.
