Jess Best, CAFUNÉ

Jess Best is a musical maven, vocalist, and exciting new songwriter who tells stories through sound and emotion. She currently resides in NYC working as a songwriter. For Saturday, her June 2017 release under her name, Jess weaves together a sound that is deeply rooted in soul and r&b while also fearlessly jumping into the pop end of the pool.

Jess and her 8-piece band have been in demand this past year, opening for Becca Steven's album release show at BRIC, headlining the Sarah Lawrence Bacchanalia Spring Fling, opening for Lawrence at Bowery Ballroom, as well as performing at colleges all over the northeast.

Her single ‘More’ has over 2 million plays on Spotify after reaching #4 on the US viral chart and #15 on the global viral chart. ‘More ‘was also added to multiple influential playlists such as Hanging Out & Relaxing, New Indie Mix, and Young & Free.

Jess is constantly creating and releasing new music. In 2018, she released a limited edition project VELVET, a unique release that was only available in 25 physical copies. In addition to her album Saturday, in 2017 alone she has released 'The Giving Tree' - an album based off the picture book by Shel Silverstein; Anonymous - an experimental sound collage that brings the listener into transit throughout NYC; and 'The Week' - a 30 song sketch book of the writing process behind her album Saturday.

cafuné (Brazilian-Portuguese, noun): “the act of running your fingers through a loved one’s hair.”
Sedona Schat and Noah Yoo took that unique meaning to heart when they began their similarly named alternative-pop project, delving into the space between dance music and post-punk. Their EP Love Songs for Other People won over fans around the world after it was released in December 2015. Recorded across the Atlantic, the EP showcases “their separate experiences molded together to forge something spectacular and infectious that proves no boundaries or limitations will deter them.” CAFUNÉ are currently working on new music.
