Introduce yourself (yourselves) and your hidden talent!
Hi I’m Jihae (pronounced “gi – hey”, means wisdom in Korean) I can feel your thoughts.
What made you decide that music is the right path for you?
People telling me I had no chance in succeeding did just the trick
Do you prefer performing live or recording, and why?
Recording is a painstaking process especially if you’re involved in every step tracking, producing, arranging and mixing but the reward is great.
Live is a high but a low awaits.. It’s apples n oranges but this pandemic makes me long for the beautiful human connection of live concerts.
What’s in store for you for the rest of the year?
I’m currently working on a Lou Reed cover, Perfect Day with my buddy Pelle Hilstrom in between shooting Season 3 of Succession. I’m designing a cow sculpture along with 74 other artists to benefit a nonprofit organization God’s Love We Deliver that feed the hungry. The Cow Parade will be exhibited all around NY and auctioned off at the end of this summer. I’m also planning a winter EP release, ‘Indigo Nights’ which is my answer to Altered Carbon fans who have been asking for the moody trip hop version of Frank Sinatra’s I’ve Got You Under My Skin I perform in the show.
