Naël Kaced Bares All on Poignant Heartfelt Ballad ‘Roses’ 

French new comer Naël Kaced has an extraordinary tale to tell, an inspirational journey of self improvement discovery and success. A rare thing in music, Naël Kaced has always been deaf. Total silence in one ear and faint noises and miffled sounds in the other. “Without my hearing aids, I’m isolated from myself,” he explains. “When I sang on stage, my hearing was sometimes so bad that I couldn’t grasp the instruments around me. As a result, I’d lose pitch and/or rhythm. I had to work a lot to adapt myself as well as possible to the specifics of the stage.”

Following on from recent single ‘When They Catch Me’, ‘Roses‘ is an intricate personal ballad on heartbreak and healing, melding an understated timeless quality brought to life through Naël’s vividly stunning vocal delivery all the more impressive given the artist’s hearing difficulties.

He says: “With ‘Roses’ I’m coming to terms with the fact that I’ll always love them, unconditionally. I tear down the walls of my pride and I completely surrender to my lingering feelings. I wrote and recorded Roses on the final day I had to finish the EP. Maybe I hadn’t cried enough, so I went back to my notes from a year ago, when I was parting ways with someone I thought was the love of my life. Singing lines that I might regret today (I’ll take the cheating and the lies) was my way of being totally honest. I hope Roses connects with those who never stopped loving even after saying goodbye.”

With his striking look and style, Naël often leaves an indelible impression wherever he goes and his music has the same effect. Brought up on a steady diet of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse and Frank Ocean, he forges ahead with his own inimitable blend of soul-pop and RnB, evident in his debut EP ‘Last Words’ due this June.
