It was a chance encounter while ambling about the internet that brought me to Camille Jansen, who from what I can gather, is an Instagram star and social media personality from Paris. She also has a stunning voice, as can be heard on “i wrote my first song and this is it”, which is apparently her very first foray into the music scene, as hard as it is to believe. The stripped down piano ballad is simple yet powerful. It reminds me of Grace Mitchell and Florence Welch, with a little Rachel Yamagata. Despite its acoustic sparseness and classy elegance, there’s a sensual allure to Camille Jensen’s beautiful ballad. I can’t wait to hear more of Camille’s voice. Let’s hope this first song won’t be the last.
by the lamplight, are you ready? this will be, what it’s supposed to be, a story, a legend, crap, it’s nothing special, a loser’s manifesto [a sort of announcement, for the uninitiated] but who’s to say that I’m initiated??
i’m living off a LOST YEAR, been doing it for years– it’s not an art form, don’t be fooled, it’s an act of desperation, it’s a drug, too, but i’ll wean myself off of it– the funny thing is, i can’t even remember specifically what year it was–
i just know it was the year we met [funny, isn’t it? but no, not really, i’m not laughing and you shouldn’t be either unless you really want to. this writing business does not lighten up my chest, if anything it gobbles up my brain in a net of complications]
if i had the chance, i’d tell him SAY IT TO MY MOUTH and leave, because the time for truth is over, that time is dead, and lies are passe but everything else in between is fair game so SAY IT TO MY MOUTH– like you mean it, like you’re unafraid, like you would have stayed with me forever, come on, find me here in my cave LIVING OFF A LOST YEAR..
