(Rigby Summer) has a seasoned voice in the manner of many of the fine female balladeers of the past. But this singer/songwriter offers new and old perspectives on the condition of love in the modern world.​”

Who is RS?

Rigby Summer, weaves an Americana soundscape that reflects the road she’s traveled, from her Kansas City jazz upbringing to the beach pop of her former home in southern California to the red dirt roots of her current home in Stillwater, Oklahoma. While her influences range from Mary Chapin Carpenter to The Frames, Sia Furler to Johnny Cash, her sound often draws comparisons to Ingrid Michaelson and Peggy Lee—a little modern, a little old-fashioned, always earnest.

In 2017, after a five-year hiatus from performing music, she founded the Monday at Modella songwriter pop-up and the ALL MUSIC STARTS LOCAL initiative and started sharpening her musical teeth, slowly carving a niche for herself in the Oklahoma scene. Since then, she has had the privilege of sharing the stage with and learning from a myriad of local and touring artists.

In 2019, she finished production on her first full-length album “Geography” at Naptime Studio in Norman, Oklahoma, with Kyle Reid at the helm. She is currently seeking radio and tour promotion and hopes to release the record in early 2020.
