She’s signed to Island records, where it would seem they like girls with the name Jessie (Jessie J, Jess Mills…) but don’t think she’s gonna start singing about Dominoes anytime soon.
Jessie found her place in music, after working as a journalist, by featuring as a guest vocalist on a couple of dance tracks. Her solo stuff is powerful – she’s inspired by the likes of Whitney Houston and Sade – and if you’re looking for a classy female to add to your iPod, you can’t go wrong with this brand new Jessie.
Jessie Ware’s album Devotion comes out on 20 August and you can check out her single Wildest Moments here.
