HELEN DESBOIS REINVENTS HERSELF WITH NEW SINGLE EDM, Dance and House Features Hip Hop and Urban Indie Pop Rock Music News Music Tips New Music New Releases Singer/Songwiters Spotlight On 


Helen Desbois has been in the entertainment industry for 20 years and has enjoyed many avenues as a performer.  Starting out as an actress, she then became a singer and dancer, voice artist and is now a radio DJ too! Her smash hit single ‘Anything’ topped charts around the country and was ultimately nominated for a South African Music Award. Now, after years of absence, Helen is back with a bang as she releases her comeback single ‘Like I Need You’.


Helen revealed that the queen of reinvention, Madonna, inspired her to get back to the studio. “I realised a bucket list dream to see my favourite artist, Madonna, live in concert in Prague last year and seeing her in action doing what she loves, inspired me to get back to music. I released my last single many years ago but watching someone like Madonna constantly adapting to new sounds and trends really pushed me to work on a passion of mine which has taken a back seat over the past few years.”


After watching Madonna live, Helen approached Benjy Mudie, to whom she was signed before and still has an incredible relationship with. He played her another song by Pam Sheyne, the writer who penned her smash hit ‘Anything’. Helen instantly fell in love with the song and knew that ‘Like I Need You’ would be the perfect track to make her comeback with. Alongside Marius Brouwer at Pop Planet Studios the song is on track to make waves in the music scene. “I really feel as if I have come full circle as I release my new single,” Helen admits. “The song is about a girl who loves a guy a little bit more than is reciprocated. However, this doesn’t trouble her. She would give anything to be with the man of her dreams. I think in life and in love, one must take the good with the bad. It’s all about balance.”


When not making music, Helen explores another passion of hers – radio. She can be heard on Mix FM’s breakfast show every morning alongside Tony Blewitt.  She received an MTN radio award in 2012 and another nomination in 2013. Helen also received an Artes Legends award for her contribution to the arts in South Africa.


Helen’s brand new single ‘Like I Need You’ is live on iTunes and the track’s official music video and a special EPK is set to drop in the coming weeks. Buy the song on iTunes here:
