The 12th of May is set as the release date for ‘Tell Me’, the new single by Amsterdam based songstress, HEBE.
Hailing from a creative family, it’s no surprise that Hebe gravitated so strongly towards music. Her father is a film and documentary director, her mother is a theater designer and teacher at The Rietveld Academy and her brother is a visual and light designer.
She released her 6-track debut EP, “The Beginning” in October 2015, shortly after graduating from The Conservatory of Amsterdam. With various festivals under her belt such as Share A Perfect Day Festival Beekse Bergen, she has also graced the stages of North Sea Jazz Club and The Sugar Factory in Amsterdam. With her previous single ‘I Knew It From The Start’ racking up over half million plays on Spotify, she has garnered interest from the likes of The 405, Noisey and Keep it Underground.
Tell Me has been described as “a unique cinematic, soulful-pop track that blends ethereal vocals with a grounded yet melancholic and powerful melody line, utilizing piano and guitar gracefully that has resemblances to James Blake.”
Speaking about “Tell Me”, HEBE says: “‘Tell Me’ describes a confrontation with loss. Loss can shake a person, I think people will recognize that. We live in a world focussed on efficiency, we have to keep our emotions to ourselves, keep smiling. Tell Me is a search in coping with fears and sadness. Facing fears and overcome them.”
