Los Angeles composer/multi-instrumentalist JULIA HOLTER has forged a reputable identity in the contemporary music landscape by merging pop melodies with abstract composition. A true DIY composer, Holter cut her teeth releasing limited-run cassettes and CD-Rs for labels like Human Ear Music, Engraved Glass, and NNA Tapes. Julia is currently recording her follow-up to Ekstasis, her 2012 album that reflected the conventions of her classical training while also introducing pop structure, with an anticipated 2013 release on Domino Records.
JESSICA PRATT is a supremely talented San Francisco-based singer and musician, self-described as “sexpervertin…born in a cave.” Pratt’s music is intricate, intimate, and contemporary yet seems as if it’s been cast from an earlier era. Pratt’s voice rumbles gently, lower and wiser than her scant 19 years; with patient, compelling and heart-wrenching songs whose hand-crafted lyrics fit near the flesh, as though some sort of celestial, terrestrial, wise elfin whispered them in your ear and then promptly left you to dream, both spooked and charmed.
