Dani Fuenzalida This is such a beautiful little album... I listen to Jesse (and Ny Oh) for the first time at Sofar Sounds in Wellington in January this year.
I remember this was one of the best and most inspiring Sofar's I've attend to. I was in a really beautiful time in my life and shared this concert with someone really special to me.
Jesse was an inspiration. I remembered talking to him at the end of the gig and saying to him "thank your son much! I feel like I want to go and write songs now ..."
Thank you for your music :)

Track Name: Break Away
there is a place that I call home
as much as I can I do rest there
but when I am still I am called on
when I am called I must obey

there is a land that I come from
it's story runs in my river
am I the man or the mountain?
am I the night of the fading daydream
the sky beneath me


I
am the valiant warrior
I
am the fearful deserter
I
am the ghost in the mirror
I
am the love that is always
There is an end to the theatre
We will be fire in the ether
Still playing the role of 'diva'
if only to just fade away to breathing
and break away
to freedom.


Playing the garden of eden
her heart is her guide and her beacon
singing the birds and the seasons
strumming for words cannot express
there is a place that we call home
as much as we can we do rest there
but different lessons we learn from
so again we must go
to break away to freedom
break away from 'me' ,g hhh
Track Name: Real Love Evolution
This morning waking it don't feel real
Am I sure that really happened?
Was truth so easily concealed?
Lessons so easily forgotten

And in this moment I do feel
This aint the start but it's a point of turning
This is insanity revealed
We must awaken to our calling

We're on our way we're coming home soon
Aint it a shame we're pushed so far before we move
Hey what a way to start a revolution
This is the real love evolution


There is a freedom to the bluebird
She does not pander to the drama
She simply sings the song of loves word
She is present to her power

We're on our way we're coming home soon
Aint it a shame we're pushed so far before we move
Hey what a way to start a revolution
This is the real love evolution

Get out our way we're coming home soon
And it's love that's coming home to roost
Because the truth is we are powerful
And we all know what we have got to do

We're on our way and we'll be home soon
In this game we're pushed and pulled but we can choose
Hey what a way to start a revolution
This is the Real Love Evolution
Track Name: Thank You
I'm amazed to be among you
And to share with you my dream
I was lost and I was broken
I was shattered at the seams
Cause the road can be misleading
And broken souls can steer you wrong
But I know I'm part of something
That is powerful and strong

So I say thank you sir
Thank you mam
and thank you love
for giving strength to this here man

Well I travelled from my country
Over miles of land and sea
Because I thought there was an answer
In that land awaiting me
And you know I found that reason
Though it was not the one I sought
That the crash upon the ocean
Is the beating of my heart

So I say thank you sir
thank you mam
thank you love
for giving strength to this here man

When my lady went and left me
She left me blue as blue could be
Because I thought she was the answer
To the pain inside of me
And you know I loved that woman
There are times I miss her bad
But I aint got no time for angry
I aint got a use for sad

I just say thank you sir
and thank you mam
and thank you love
for giving strength to this here man
I gotta thank you sir
i gotta thank you mam
for their is love their is sweetness
Hold your life in your two hands

And it's alright, it's alright, every little thing is gonna be alright.
Track Name: Love IS
The lonely writer sings of lost love
He blames his woman for his strife
He claims to him she was unfaithful
She broke his heart and broke his pride
He talks of love as a possession
One you could lose under the bed
but Love was flowing in the rivers
Long before the word was said

And if love is an old river
Then we are leaves upon its life
Though we may flow in its direction
We do not steer we do not drive
We simply float into the ocean
All must surrender when they're there
There is no fear in this surrender
Only love awaits you here

Love
Love is a blue wave rising
Love is your soul unwinding
Love is your hair upon my chest
Love is the joy of this happiness
Love is the angel bluebirds cry
Love IS
Love IS

And you my darling
You're the mountains
You are the wind that blows your hair
You sing the water in the fountains
You reflect the colours of this sphere
And I know you're an open hearted woman
Darling I'm an open hearted man
In this dance we are forgotten
It was never in our hands

Love IS

The lonely writer sings of lost love
Or at least that's what he claims
In fact he sings about possession
He sings the song of egos pain
For what is yours but an illusion ?
We all drink from the mothers wine
And are born of its conclusion
We all are songs of this divine love

Love is our hands intwining
Love is your soul uprising
Love is your breath upon my breath
Love is the birth within the death
Love is the angel bluebirds cry
Love IS
Love IS
