“At the end of the road, all I need is a home. Rest my bag and my bones. No longer alone.”
Joyce Prescher is a Melbourne based singer-songwriter originally from the Netherlands. Slowly but steadily, Joyce has been making a name for herself in the Americana and folk scene.
With her carefully crafted lyrics, haunting melodies and rich velvety vocals she takes you back to days long gone. Her words are delivered with such honesty and melancholy, you cannot help but be roped in and left mesmerised.
In 2020 Joyce joined the line up of a show called Keep the Circle Unbroken, curated by Delsinki. With the show she has performed at the Memo Music Hall, the 2022 Port Fairy Folk Festival and as part of their regional Victoria tour in 2021. She shared the stage with many Australian favourites, including Tim Rogers, Kylie Auldist, Mick Thomas, Debra Byrne, Sarah Carroll, Kerryn Fields and XANI. Joyce Prescher also features on the Keep the Circle Unbroken album, which was recorded live in July 2020 at the Memo Music Hall in St Kilda, between the two Melbourne lockdowns.
In November 2021 she performed as part of three sold out shows paying tribute to the late Justin Townes Earle at the Brunswick Ballroom.
More recently, Joyce completed a tour as part of the Sing a Song of Sixpence line up, with artists including Abby Dobson, Freya Josephine Hollick, Charm of Finches, Van Walker, Grim Fawkner and more.
Joyce Prescher released her debut album Home in 2017, which was praised by PBS and listed in their top 10 albums upon release. She has finished recording her sophomore album, which is to be released in the second half of 2022.
