HYPETRAK TV: Jessie Ware – An Intricate Tale

Soulful South London songstress Jessie Ware first garnered recognition for her warm vocal style and neo-soul leanings with features on SBTRKT‘s “Sanctuary” and “Right Thing To Do,” appearing on the British electronic musician’s 2011 self-titled debut. Since then, Ware has released a critically-acclaimed debut of her own, linking up with producers Julio Bashmore, Kid Harpoon and The Invisible’s Dave Okumu for 2012′s Devotion. Peaking at number five on the UK charts and making waves with singles “Running,” “110%,” “Wildest Moments” and “Night Light,” Devotion has led to a Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize nomination while BBC Music critic Mike Diver noted that the full-length “is the sort of sophisticated, soulful pop record that comes along all too rarely, a collection that never hides the heart on its sleeve.” HYPETRAK recently had the opportunity to sit down for an intimate chat with the rising UK native, gaining insights into her vivid songwriting, thoughts on the Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize nomination, comparisons and affinity for British R&B icon Sade, and more. Ware’s Devotion is now available via iTunes.
