Nobody’s Girl to Play at Roots on the River

Austin singer-songwriters Rebecca Loebe, Grace Pettis and BettySoo have each performed for years at Texas’ beloved Kerrville Folk Festival; in fact, that’s where they met in 2008, the year BettySoo became a New Folk Competition winner.

By 2011, all three had earned that honor. By 2018, their tight harmonies would wind up joining forces on a Kerrville stage as the hot new trio called Nobody’s Girl. This same trio had signed a record deal, recorded an EP, Waterline, and launched a tour before its members had even picked a name. Still a bit dazed by this warp-speed chain of events, Pettis explains, “Most bands write a bunch of songs, jam in a garage for months or years, start playing local gigs, go on their first tour, and then maybe make an album.”

Nobody’s Girl’s trajectory was just the opposite. According to Pettis it was totally reverse engineered. In August 2017, Loebe casually proposed a one-off joint tour, and by September the group had shot press photos. In October, to catch promoters’ ears, the trio made an iPhone video of themselves singing Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.” Posted in November, it rapidly went “mini-viral.”

Lucky Hound Music, a new label and artist-development firm, was among the first to catch wind of the video. In December, this attention practically teleported Nobody’s Girl to a songwriting retreat outside of Austin, where in just 36 hours, the trio wrote three of the four original songs for their six-song EP. Waterline, Nobody’s Girl’s official debut, was released on September 28th.
