KAYE: Next Life Around is a short documentary that explores the creative journey taken by artist Charlene Kaye, known mononymously as KAYE.
In late 2020, Kaye released Conscious Control, her most ambitious solo album to date. Having left her band, San Fermin, which she fronted for 5 years, and broken off a long-term relationship, Kaye has set out to rediscover herself and her music as a grown woman and a solo artist, while overcoming this emotionally fraught period in her life.
The film is a compilation of intimate performances, behind-the-scenes moments, and live concert scenes, recorded in 2019 and early 2020.
