Seconds, her 2012 release, marks the fourth studio record for Rebecca Rego since 2006. Seconds is Rebecca Rego's second full band release . The album features Stephanie Whiton on drums, Michael Biederman on guitar, Mike Przygoda playing piano, and Renee Serritella on the bass. Fellow Chicago folkie and occasional member of Joe Pug’s band, Julie Klee, provides backing vocals on half of the new songs.
