Charlene Kaye: Forever Is A Long Time

If you don’t know Charlene Kaye, here’s your ice-breaker. Kaye’s a special talent out of NY (via Singapore via Hawaii via Arizona etc…), a gifted singer and total professional when it comes to making pop music sound strange and strange music sound catchy. Her sophomore effort is ‘Animal Love,’ funded by a super successful Kickstarter campaign (aimed for $20k; ended with $33k). The resulting ten tracks explain the generous extra 13 grand. The album’s a gratifying tour through pop hooks and slight-of-hand production, clever and honest and appealing just like the lady herself. We were lucky enough to have Charlene and her (incredibly talented) crew come by for an acoustic take on “Forever Is A Long Time.” Charlene Kaye, Unplugged and Unrehearsed.
