Mistletone Records says
Californian songsmith Jessica Pratt brings her unearthly folk delights back to Australia, accompanied this time by guitarist Cyrus Gengras, for an intimate Brisbane headline show at the Black Bear Lodge, with special guest McKisko. Tickets on sale now!

An excessively gifted young scribe and singer with her own astounding musical logic, Jessica Pratt has made two superb albums — this year's On Your Own Love Again (Drag City/Spunk) and her self-titled 2012 debut (Birth Records/Mistletone) — both laden with strange and gracious songs from a spine-thrilling place. People respond to the austere, pristine clarity of Jessica Pratt's performances, the gentle strength, marveling at how much comes from so little: just a voice and a guitar or two. They remark on the timeless nature of the songs and the voice, scrupulously informed by the folk-rock of ages past, but sung without bags (none in hand, nor beneath eyes). They speculate on just who is the personality behind this Jessica Pratt?

It is hard not to respond to the sound of her music, not to want more right away. With her delicate and singular sound, Jessica Pratt is fully alive in a space all her own; with isolation in the breeze, the sound resonant in the natural light and a gauze of clouds in the sky, under which she can relax, unwind and let herself be.

To quote Aunty Meredith's words of introduction for Meredith Music Festival: "With just an acoustic guitar and her voice, this is way more than folk, it's subtly hallucinatory psychedelia. Her voice is unique, it's unclear what time it is from. And she's a virtuoso guitar player, setting up the songs with circular peaks and troughs of sound. 'It's really just about being at the mercy of those waves', she says. Submit."
