HEBE Performs “Cards On The Table” on Mahogany Sessions
- Back in October 2020, Amsterdam-based electro-pop singer-songwriter HEBE released her third EP “Cards On The Table”.
“Many songs would not have existed also without my boyfriend, he is my big inspiration, but he also knows how important it is to take a moment to celebrate important highlights with me,” HEBE said. “I am sensitive and I've always been searching for ways to relate myself to life and mortality. I suffered from some sort of depression in my late teens, but I've grown over that by talking about it, reading a lot about it and also just getting a bit older I guess.”
Followed by, a piano version of the EP was released on November 20th.
“All my songs are born around the piano in my house,” she explained. “When I started working in the studio with Huub Reijnders, Martijn Bosman, and Ruben Hein, we added all kinds of layers, grooves, and production sounds. With these acoustic versions, I wanted to show the way I wrote them: just me behind the piano, purely focusing on the lyrics.”
From the EP, she performed the EP title track on Mahogany Sessions on January 5, 2021.
The song is a love song exploring the vulnerability and doubt that come with the early stages of a relationship. “The frightening moment you put your cards on the table, you hope the time is right to let your guard down, expose yourself and be loved and accepted.”
