South Londoner Jessie Ware plays songs from her debut album Devotion, which releases on April 16th on Cherrytree Records/Interscope. Devotion is full of laid-back, soulful pop songs that run the spectrum of sweet and dark.
Jessie Ware has already cemented herself as one of the freshest talents to emerge from the UK underground. The last couple of years have seen Jessie collaborating with some of the most respected producers on the electronic spectrum.
Jessie caused waves through out the scene in 2010 when she lent her vocals to masked producer SBTRKT for his fantastically catchy and squelchy track "Nervous." This year she has worked with Bristol dubstep producer Joker on the ominous and thunderous lead single "The Vision" and then of course melted hearts with Sampha on the hauntingly romantic track "Valentine."
Also catch her later that night at The Independent!
