We just released the second edition of “The Incredible Shrinking Band”. In this new video series, we shrink bands to a tiny size to play a tiny live session in the tiniest house next to Paradiso. ‘Cause what do you do when it’s impossible for music creatives to live and thrive in Amsterdam? When all space is taken up by greed? When the cost of living goes up up up? You use every single little tiny space you’ve got, and shrink your dear musicians. Until the love for music in this city grows bigger than the greed that goes around, we need to find different ways to create space for musicians.
LET’S CREATE GIANTS!
The second artist we shrunk was JELISA, performing her new track “My Way, Anyway”.
Watch it here
JELISA is fresh to the scene: she released her first EP last summer. She has always been expressing herself through art. After years of dancing, acting and modeling professionally, she now pours all her creativity and experiences into words and notes. In collaboration with Noflik and Multibeat JELISA presents to you: “My Way, Anyway”, with influences of Jazz, neo soul and alternative R&B.
“It’s my realization to follow my intuition and not care about what other people think you should or shouldn’t do. Creating your own path is important because it’s your only truth.”
