Offstage, Alynda Lee Segarra is a 26-year-old from the Bronx. Give her a microphone and a guitar, and she transforms into the leader of the indie-folk phenom Hurray for the Riff Raff. A student of doo-wop, Motown, riot grrrl shows and her adopted hometown of New Orleans, Segarra draws from diverse musical influences. The result is a sound that reflects the “grit of the concrete she grew up on paired with the drawl of the bayous and bougainvillea,” says the Village Voice. This unlikely hybrid comes alive on Small Town Heroes, an album of ballads and rockabilly riffs anchored by Segarra’s husky alto.
