Hurray for the Riff Raff is the moniker for Alynda Segarra, a singer-songwriter of Puerto Rican descent, originally from the Bronx, based in New Orleans, who has been working in a variety of styles under the Americana umbrella over the years. They have played country, country swing, traditional folk, Appalachian folk, blues, and a bit of southern gothic. Surf rock and rockabilly have also been in the picture. Their more recent work has been incorporating some indie rock and alt country while turning the knob down on the more traditional sounds. Their songwriting is remarkable both musically and in terms of the topics they take on and the point of view they bring to country music as a whole. Their 2022 album, Life on Earth, suggested a departure from their conventional sound into a rock oriented style.
