Live N Local Presents: An Evening at Pause Bar

Pause Bar, 268 Carlisle Street, Balaclava

Celebrate the (almost) weekend with An Evening at Pause Bar, Balaclava, featuring Jess McMahon, Joyce Prescher, and Monica Karo. Venture into the heart of Balaclava and kick back as these three captivating singer-songwriters light up the stage at Pause Bar.

Jess McMahon A fixture of the live St Kilda Music community, Jess McMahon approaches her songwriting with no filter. It’s raw, catchy and honest. A combination of smouldering rock and angelic melody, she creates an inclusiveness in a room, were the listener can start to feel they can relate to the story sung right from the heart

Joyce Prescher Joyce Prescher is a Dutch-born folk artist based in Melbourne. She captures audiences with her poetic lyrics, haunting melodies and a voice that gets under your skin. Joyce released her debut album 'Home' in 2017 and is currently working on a new album. Her sound tells of her love of folk music, with hints of alt-country and Americana. Her songs are made to listen to whilst wrapped in a warm blanket, in front of a fireplace, with a glass of red in your hand.
