After Gaga Publishing signed Coby and placed her original song “A Song About Me” into a Scandinavian TVC five years ago, life has been pretty busy for Coby, who toured Europe extensively for years.

Joyce Prescher Joyce Prescher is a Dutch born folk musician who is now Melbourne based. Her carefully crafted lyrics, haunting melodies and rich velvety vocals take you back to days long gone. Joyce delivers her songs with such honesty and melancholy, you cannot help but be roped in and left mesmerised.

Most recently he toured a show called ‘Keep the circle unbroken’ to sold out venues across regional Victoria.
