Behind every artist lies an interesting backstory and Jessica Pratt’s is more endearing than most. Picking up her brother’s Stratocaster at the age of fifteen, she taught herself every guitar part on T. Rex’s ‘Electric Warrior’ album, and the rest, as they say, is history. Offering something much more refined than such a story alludes to, Pratt’s own recordings are a thing of alluring beauty. Blessed with a voice that could bring a sense of mystical wonder to the just about anything, she’s been likened to Joan Baez and similar peers, while also having her songs described as “freak folk”. We just say that it’s wonderful; raw, earthy, and utterly engaging.
