Feeling a bit camera shy


Pritchard presents: a modern, poetical, lyrical, narrative musical set piece in a single song. When Pritchard tells a story, you live out the drama of her experience with her, whether humorous or heartbreaking.
(Some fans have said: “Dark and beautiful … a visionary.”)
Pritchard’s visceral singing style and complex lyrics evoke comparisons to the songs of Leonard Cohen and the hip heat of jazzy songstress Peggy Lee.
Influences: traditional folk songs, classical music, jazz, Broadway musicals, T.S. Eliot, and Warner Bros. cartoons.
The songs: Riddled and ribald with black humor … steely-eyed observations of love and the miseries and mysteries of existence.
Recently: Wrote the theme song and did the vocals for a TV pilot (“Say What?”) awarded the Silver Medal for Excellence for Best Impact of Music In Independent Film (Short Films) by the 2004 Park City Film Music Festival.
The writing: a blend of angst, wit and Sturm and Drang in song tracking the vicissitudes of blonde hair in a dark world.
Has performed at: The Apollo Theater, The Friars Club, Don’t Tell Mama, Club Passim (Boston), Fast Folk Café, The Colony Café (Woodstock), Cornelia Street Cafe, C-Note, Arlene’s Grocery, Meow Mix, Rumble in the Red Room/Pulse Theater, Sacred Clowns Comedy Orchestra, Tribes Hill Music Festival.
Sings in the shower: Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered (by Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart)
Aspiration: Create a Henry James story in a song (that's the novelist, not the trumpeter)
Wouldn’t throw out of bed: Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Evans, Greg Brown
