KasēoGems is a musical duo from Vancouver consisting of singer songwriters, Geoff Gibbons and Vicky Sjohall. Their debut single is a heartfelt one, a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire”!
Recorded remotely during the lockdown 2020, Geoff and Vicky used their undeniable chemistry to make the song thrive, despite being far away from one another. They stayed true to the tone of the song, but the female vocals adds a beautiful twist to it.
When singing lyrics like, “And a freight train runnin’ through the middle of my head / Only you can cool my desire” together, you get more of a feel that they’re talking to each other, compared to the original where Bruce is the only vocalist.
Throughout the lockdown of 2020, the duo is continuing to collaborate remotely and create songs, both covers and originals. With KasēoGems’s use of acoustic instruments and warm harmonies, listeners get to experience their emotions during a time where we are all grieving the loss of normalcy.
