TUNE Jessy Yasmeen - Dreams
Jessy Yasmeen is a Rotterdam based artist with both Dutch and South American roots. Her dreamy Indie Folk is inspired by acts such as Ben Howard, Bon Iver and Matt Corby. A young Tracy Chapman also springs to mind. Over the past three years she played more than 80 shows from Amsterdam to Berlin. 2019 was a great year for Jessy Yasmeen: She won the 'Grote Prijs van Rotterdam' (category singer-songwriter) and was nominated for the Rotterdam Music Awards (categories ‘most promising’ and ‘best track’).
"Dreams is written in third person, telling about "she", but it could be anyone. It is about someone who has a yearning desire, and from the uncertainties that it entails she dares to walk the path, but in fact all she wants is to dream.
From society, but also from your parents for example, you feel the pressure to do certain things related to which life phase you are in. Or you are in a relationship where you set yourself aside and lose yourself.
But if you really listen to your heart, you may find that you are doing things that don't make you happy. Neglecting you true passion out of fear. But that is what you can overcome."
