JIL CLESSE: half infinity
CHANSON / POP
𝗝𝗶𝗹 𝗖𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲 is a singer-songwriter from Luxembourg who lives in Vienna and has a penchant for France. She likes to express herself in German and toying with Viennese. In addition to her career as a singer and actress, which she has already taken across the major musical stages in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, she deals with issues such as transience and fear of loss, freedom and dependency and "being enough for yourself" and processes them into her own Songs. Her instrument is the piano, which she discovered for herself at the age of 4.
Her debut album 𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗯𝗲.𝘂𝗻𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗵𝗸𝗲𝗶𝘁, which she published at the beginning of October and will now present at CAPE, tells stories of growing - together, with each other, next to each other and beyond. Jil speaks five different languages but thinks in pictures. That is why her songs focus very much on the imagery of words: They tell of moles that learn to see, of fearful gardeners, of messed up dances and a narcissistic king's daughter. In her songs you can always feel her home, the theater, resonating a little.
