Expanding beyond the homespun rootsiness of her critically acclaimed debut to incorporate a grittier, more experimental palette, Becca Mancari's captivating new collection, 'The Greatest Part,' lives in a liminal space between grief and joy, pain and forgiveness, sorrow and liberation. The record, produced by Paramore drummer Zac Farro, marks a significant sonic and emotional evolution, balancing unflinching self-examination with intoxicating grooves and infectious instrumental hooks fueled by explosive percussion and fuzzed out guitars. The lyrics are raw and gutsy to match, peeling back old scars to explore the emotional and psychological turmoil Mancari weathered growing up gay in a fundamentalist Christian home, while at the same time examining the ties that continue to bind her to the family she loves. Though personal reflection is nothing new for the Nashville-based songwriter, 'The Greatest Part' finds Mancari digging deeper than ever before, excavating new layers of her psyche in an effort to make sense of where she's been, where she's headed, and most importantly, who she's become.
"This record was the hardest thing I've ever had to write," she explains. "At the same time, it was also the most freeing."
