The Pretenders Agency Booking Profile
With their initial records, The Pretenders crossed the bridge between punk/new wave and Top 40 pop more than any other band, recording a series of hard, spiky singles that were also melodic and immediately accessible. Chrissie Hynde was an invigorating, sexy singer who bent the traditional male roles of rock & roll to her own liking, while guitarist James Honeyman-Scott created a sonic palate filled with suspended chords, effects pedals, and syncopated rhythms that proved remarkably influential over the next two decades. Since Honeyman-Scott’s death, the Pretenders have become a more straightforward rock band, yet Hynde’s semi-autobiographical songwriting and bracing determination has meant that the group never became just another rock band, even when their music became smoother and more pop-oriented.
