Daisy Press


Daisy Press has been hailed by the New York Times as an “intrepid, passionate” voice in modern classical music in the US and Europe. At Brooklyn’s famed House of Yes, she has served as a prominent voice in NYC nightlife. In Europe, Ms. Press has recently performed as a soloist with Vienna-based ensembles Klangforum Wien and Phace.

Daisy is a specialist in the music of 12th-century mystic and polymath Hildegard of Bingen, and she incorporates practices of North Indian (Hindustani) ragas into her unusual interpretations of Hildegard’s chants. Her first all-Hildegard album will be released on Story Sound Records. Daisy is the creator and High Priestess of the now-online phenomenon known as Voice Cult, a vibrant community which meets weekly to explore singing Hildegard’s music as a regular grounding practice for body and spirit.

Daisy Press (She/Her) was picked by curator David Bruin (He/Him) for Prelude Festival 2021.
