These are important times for FKJ.
French musician Vincent Fenton - who goes by the moniker French Kiwi Juice aka FKJ - just packed out London's Roundhouse, part of his biggest international tour yet.
New single 'Leave My Home' proves that his creativity remains undimmed, a jazz-leaning jam that is both heartfelt and completely gorgeous.
He explains: “I made this one in Paris which was my home at the time. It was a few weeks before I was about to leave for another country, far away in the tropics. I lived in Paris for over 6 years. That’s the city where it all started for me. I love this city, I just needed a change. I was suffocating and wanted to step back, everything goes so fast over there.”
“I found out I was about to become a dad it accelerated this process of me leaving. I didn’t wait longer. I left and joined my love where she lived. A very isolated place in nature. Here was my new home.”
“Becoming a parent didn’t happen, but that’s another chapter of the story that other songs will tell. This song is about that feeling when I was preparing for a new phase. Changing environment for an artist has a big impact. Where I get my inspiration now is obviously very different from when I was living in Paris.”
Tune in now.
