As I mentioned in an earlier Band Discovery post, South London native Jessie Ware is a singer on the rise. Her deep soulful voice have invited comparisons to greats such as Sade. Combine that with some terrific electro-pop and dub-step inspired beats, and her songs have paved the way for a new breed of pop-R&B sound. This is fulfilled in her debut album Devotion, a record that is full of promise and hints of future stardom.
You can stream the whole album right now on various website, including Pitchfork’s. In the meantime, check out two of Jessie’s standout tracks – the beaterrific 110% and the stunning Wildest Moments, embedded below.
