New Treat #114: Jessie Ware

The first time I saw Jessie Ware was actually way back in February when she supported Alabama Shakes on their debut UK show at The Boston Arms. I enjoyed her performance but thought she had a long way to go before the hype become justified. I have now decided, after much deliberation, that I really like Jessie Ware. So if you’ve missed all the hype about her, here is an introduction. Jessie is from Brixton in London and has collaborated with SBTRKT and Sampha among others. Her music is pop with a twist. Her better songs have a kind of XX feel to them. It’s all very sexy and smooth. She has a great voice and some of the songs are really really good. Some not so much, but we’ll discuss that properly when the album is released.

Her debut album ‘Devotion’ is released on August 20th. Jessie plays NOVA, Beacons and Bestival this summer.
