Melbourne-based songwriter Joyce Prescher has released her new single ‘Sleep Now‘ and it’s quite the transportive and immersive listen. A cello casts a haunting pallor across the track, decorated with gentle filaments of acoustic guitar notes, the sound of brushes on a snare and Prescher’s voice – poised and precisely phrased in its melancholic folk form.
Amid the beautiful drift and somnambulant sway of the music Prescher explores the question ‘How much of yourself should you lose for someone else?

Joyce Prescher is one of my favourite Melburnian musicians. She just has one of these voices that completely fills the room, unamplified. She's a really beautiful artist.

Joyce Prescher sings such commanding and powerful words with such a delicate and lilting voice. Her new album 'Home' (which is also out on vinyl) is superbly recorded and produced with an excellent array of soundscapes which wrap around her heartful and poetic songs.
Don't hesitate grabbing this record. A Melbourne artist with something truly special happening! Khristian Mizzi - Singer/Songwriter
Her reflective lyrics tend to be set in crooked structures full of jazz chords. Her record would sit nicely in any 70’s folk collection.
