I came across Jessica Pratt on satellite radio recently. Her album On Your Own Love Again was among Pitchfork’s Most Anticipated Releases of 2015. She is currently out of L.A., but originated in San Francisco. Her distinctive voice and precise guitar fit perfectly with her introverted form of folk and singer/songwriter music, not unlike early Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez.
Here she is on KEXP performing “Wrong Hand” and the haunting “Strange Melody.”
