The Kaje talks December Sessions to The Feeling

The Feeling are first broke the British music scene in 2006 with the enchanting ‘Sewn’ and its unforgettable video. Since then the West Sussex and London based troupe have continued to work their magic both at home and overseas. With 2011 having marked the release of both their third studio album “Together We Were Made” and their first Greatest Hits compilation “Singles (2006-2011)”, The Kaje decided it was time for The Feeling to take a walk down memory lane…

You just played The Silent Gig for the December Sessions, how was it?

Weird, very strange! The last song, I’m used to people singing it back at me, so I normally rely on them. At a Silent Gig, the crowd listens to every detail of what you’re doing. Normally you get 80% of their attention, and 20% mingling, but with The Silent Gig, you get a full 100%. Totally weird.

How did you get your ‘big break’?

We had a CD of songs – about 3 or 4 of which ended up on our first album, a few as big hits. That CD ended up with a music lawyer who was a friend of a friend. It all happened very naturally, got passed around, and then we started getting phone calls from record companies. We did a season of gigs in the alps, did 10 shows a week, that was our thing! Residencies in bars and clubs etc. So yeah basically we came back and had offers as we’d had several hundreds of hours of stage times already. It’s all about getting out there and doing it.

Would that be your advice for up-and-coming bands?

Of course, no matter how painful it is, you learn 20 times more from a gig that you will from a rehearsal.
