Very cool, very ecto stuff. Hard not to compare her to certain ectophilic goddesses. (email@example.com)
Comments about live performance:
Opener Vyktoria Pratt Keating seemed promising. She's from VA, had a pleasant folky style and some clever tunes. Someone at the show told her she sounded just like October Project, which is a fine compliment, despite having absolutely no bearing on reality. (c. 1999, neal)
Recommended first album:
1993, re-released 1996—Prime CD
Vicky Pratt Keating—vocals, guitar
Bob Read—keyboards, percussion
Blue Apples is a very nice CD. She has a very pretty voice, and some very good songs. I'm reminded at times of Joni Mitchell, especially on 'Shoot for the Moon'. (sspan)
Vyktoria Pratt Keating—all acoustic guitars, vocals, dumbek, drums, bells, chimes
J. Christian Quick—bass, sitar, keyboards, bowed cymbals, drums
Vyktoria Pratt Keating and Christian Quick
The album is a bit new agey (which goes with the name change from Vicky to Vyktoria), but not annoyingly so. It's got the same pretty vocals you talk about, and a lot of interesting instruments, in particular some nice textured percussion stuff (tiny cymbals, chimes, bells). There is also a hilarious song about her dreams of rock stars. (neal)

Vyktoria Pratt Keating—vocals, guitar
Vyktoria Pratt Keating sings quirky lyrics to unusual melodies. She has a distinctive resemblance to Kate Bush, but there's a Victoria Williams influence to her as well. The spaced-out words and accessible tunes cohabit this record well.
