Jessie J Eden Session to be webcast live
For the first time ever, the Eden Sessions will be broadcasting one of its spectacular gigs live and free-to-view through YouTube.
The second of Jessie J’s sold-out headline shows, taking place on Sunday July 14, will be streamed through the dedicated online channel Eden Sessions TV (www.youtube.com/edensessionstv).
Since February this year, Eden Sessions TV has hosted videos from the extensive archive of music performances at Eden but the project has never before broadcast any of the shows live.
Rita Broe, Eden’s Strategic Marketing Director, said: “This is a very exciting development for the Eden Sessions. Our YouTube channel already features great exclusive content from past years but it’s a big step forward for us to webcast a live show globally.
“Music is part of Eden's DNA and the live stream will help to expose our unique venue to millions worldwide.”
London-born Jessie J is one of the hottest pop stars on the planet right now, having hit the number one spot in 19 countries, selling 16 million singles and more than three million copies of her multi-platinum debut album Who You Are. In the UK alone she has sold 1.5 million albums and secured two number one singles with Price Tag and Domino.
Jessie’s most recent single Wild, featuring Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal and from her forthcoming second studio album, hit the top-ten in the UK, Ireland and Australia.
Jessie’s special guest over both nights will be A*M*E who had a number one in April with the infectious Need U (100%), a collaboration with Duke Dumont and MNEK.
The 18-year-old A*M*E burst onto the UK music scene last year with tracks such as City Lights, Find A Boy and Play The Game Boy demonstrating her lively, dancehall- and electropop-inflected sound. A*M*E has also had a number one in Korea with a track she wrote for all girl K-Pop band FX. Her next single, entitled Heartless, is due to be released on July 14.
Opening the evening will be Hot D’Jour, who won a competition judged by Jessie J to play at the Eden Sessions. The band, who mix their up-tempo soul with a touch of hip-hop, are singer-songwriter Hollie G and producer-drummer Denzil Lowndes. Based in Cornwall and Bristol, the pair have been working together for five years.
The live broadcast is due to start at 6.30pm and Jessie J is due on stage at 9pm. To watch, go to www.youtube.com/edensessionstv.
