Another artist that I slept on was Jessie Ware! I didn’t discover Jessie’s music until this year. Here’s a quick rundown on this budding starlet:
- Origin: UK (London)
- Label: PMR Records
- Started her career as a background vocalist for Jack Peñate and SBTRKT
- She collaborated with Sampha (long time collaborator of SBTRKT’s) on the song “Valentine”
- Released her debut album “Devotion” August 2012
- Debuted at #5 on the UK charts
- Most successful single “Wildest Moments”
Jessie has spent the last year touring at numerous festivals throughout the UK, Europe, and the States. She recently started working on her sophomore album during the 1st quarter of this year. I’m highly anticipating her next release! I can’t wait for some new music! In the meantime, listen to some of her tracks below.
Devotion (Title Track)–One of my faves!
Bonus Vid: Valentine
