Jessica Pratt near the beginning of her 2015 West Coast tour. The singer/songwriter opened for Kevin Morby at the Electric Owl in Vancouver on Saturday night.
Pratt is on tour for her Drag City release, On Your Own Love Again. The album is the follow-up to her 2012 self-titled debut.
Listen – Jessica Pratt, “Back Baby” (from On Your Own Love Again):
From a Drag City press release: “Jessica Pratt’s self-titled 2012 debut has been much-murmured about in the time between yesterday and today. People respond to the austere, pristine clarity of the performances, the gentle strength, and marvel at how much comes from so little: just a voice and a guitar or two! Now here it is, two years on, and Jessica’s very new On Your Own Love Again is here for us, playing her further adventures in new and different pastures. If they feel removed from the first songs, it may help to know that the recordings of the first album were made some years back with no vision of making an album.
“After deep consideration, Jessica found new songs in her and an urgency to make another record, marked with a strong sense about rendering these songs exactly the way she heard them inside herself, spending time with them and crafting the smallest details. In this way, she was able to truly inhabit her own skin as a singer of her songs – and make On Your Own Love Again the first Jessica Pratt album constructed to be an album.”
