The Kaje Sessions: Helena Jesele

The Kaje Sessions presents Helena Jesele. Manchester born, Dublin raised singer/songwriter Helena Jesele towers above her contemporaries in many respects. Physically clocking in at 6ft, Jesele is a distinct presence physically, but her height is far from the focal point when watching the charismatic chanteuse perform her delicious ditties. Having blown The Kaje away with her stomping single “Let The Games Begin”, we are honoured to have The Kaje Sessions play host to this tasty rendition of “Sun Is Rising”.

Where did you record The Kaje Session?

It was recorded at a friend’s flat in central London.

What made you choose to use this location?

It’s a very light, airy and relaxed space with lovely big windows, so it felt like the right fit for the song.

What is the most unusual live date you have ever played?

I did a gig at the top of The Gherkin once. It was amazing, but didn’t do my fear of heights any favors…

What made you choose “Sun Is Rising” for the session?

Well, “Sun Is Rising” is quite an uplifting, summery track, so as it’s been raining in London nonstop for the last couple of weeks, I thought it’s be nice to give The Kaje a little sunshine!

Single of the Week: Caan “Into The Night” / Helena Jesele “Let The Game Begin”

The Kaje have been hit by a conundrum this week. With a plethora of insanely brilliant singles set for release, we whittled our list down to two very different tracks that we simply couldn’t choose between. So why choose? This week we will simply honour two instead of one..

First up is the firm The Kaje favourite Caan. The former Ou Est Le Swimming Pool member blew us away with the haunting “Every Little Thing” and returns with the hypnotising “Into The Night”…

With a swing in her step, Mancunian born, Dublin raised Helena Jesele wears her Aretha Franklin and Ella Fitzgerald influences on her sleeve. This is no bad thing. Oozing class, Jesele’s latest single “Let The Game Begin” will knock you for six…
