Joyce Prescher w/ Duncan Phillips

Brunswick Artist Bar, 316 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

With her carefully crafted lyrics, haunting melodies, beautiful fingerpicking, and rich velvety vocals - with subtle accenting reminiscent of artists like Ane Brun or even the Swedish duo First Aid Kit - Dutch-born Joyce Prescher has slowly but steadily been making a name for herself on the Melbourne and national Americana and folk scene.

Joyce's music takes you back to days long gone, with its gentle nods to 70s artists like Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. Her words are delivered with honesty and melancholy; you cannot help but be roped in and left mesmerised.

Joyce is joined on the night by Scottish born Duncan Phillips. Duncan offers a unique blend of contemporary Americana. Think Steve Earle meets Tom Petty with a touch of the Boss and you’re starting to get the picture. With a rich vocal and guitar ranging from delicate fingerstyle to four on the floor rock n roll, his live show will keep you captivated from the first word to the last note.
