Kate Prascher doesn’t want you to look at her. She wants you to see what she sees. She wants to know if you see it too. Her songs say the things that don’t make it into polite conversation. They touch our everyday darkness, wade through undercurrents of memory and sketch half-portraits of characters both real and imagined. Originally from Tennessee, now at home in New York’s Hudson Valley, Prascher is a songwriter with a haunting, clear sound and vision.

In her upcoming 2024 album, Prascher says the quiet parts loud and loud parts quietly. She evokes American folk tradition and calls it forward. Expect to hear new songs from a voice that has been described as having an “intangible vintage feel.”
