Jessica Pratt (US)
Jessica Pratt makes the division between the past and present disappear with her timeless and exceptional characteristic voice. Through her songs she moves, quietens, touches and disarms her listeners.
It is because of her frugal and alternative approach to folk that made her put out an amazing unadorned self-titled debut in 2012. That record contains one magical song following the other; listening to them just makes the world a more beautiful place to live in. You could say that Pratt is a sturdy mutation of Joni Mitchell, Linda Perhacs and Joanna Newsom.
This young musician with an old soul released her second record On Your Own Love Again at the end of January 2015. It also contains the two songs down below.
“Ethereally beautiful with a dark undercurrent” – The Guardian
“She leaves the listener in an equally speechless state, comforted by the warmth of the moment, unable to explain exactly why.” – Consequence Of Sound
