I Got You On Tape

It’s one week before Christmas, a jazzy version of “Jingle Bells“ is playing on the stereo and Café Intime is full of sparkling Christmas tree balls hanging from all over the ceiling. Jacob Bellens, the singer of the Copenhagen-based I Got You On Tape takes his seat at the grand piano right when the first guests of the day come into the bar. Lars, the owner of Café Intime, has opened a bit earlier for us, but even though we are still before opening hours start the place is filling up quickly. Some may even have recognised the piano player of the day, as I Got You On Tape won the popular danish P3 music award 2010 and had a lot of television appearances and media coverage for their latest album “Church Of The Real“. Jacob starts playing „Springsteen“ of that album and transforms what is a atmospheric, dark synthesizer song on the LP into a powerful piano ballad. “Church Of The Real“, the album’s title track, is another example of how Jacob’s characteristic voice and a few simple piano chords make a stunning live performance.
