Jessye DeSilva welcomes you into their chosen family. A cut from their new record, Landscapes, “Family Tree” prunes through toxic blood relatives and instead opts to nurture buds peaking through the pavement, those relationships built on LGBTQ+ bonds. “Seasons change like friends and lovers / And other people you hold dear,” sings DeSilva. Their voice is as always enveloping and snuggly, paired with lyrics speaking to rich issues of human nature. “Sister, mother, teacher, friend, isn’t it about love in the end?” It’s a question we all must answer sooner or later 一 and why not now with DeSilva’s hand wrapped around yours?
