Jessie Ware Bio

Apr 11, 2013

British singer-songwriter Jessie Ware has become one of the hottest new artists to break into the music scene in the last year, with critics applauding her debut album Devotion. Find out more about her in her Kidzworld Bio!

Junior Jessie

Jessica Lois Ware (Jessie to us) was born October 15th, 1984, and grew up in South London. Her family is Jewish, and although no one else in the family is a singer, they’re no strangers to the stage - her father John Ware is a BBC Reporter and her sister Hanna is an actress. When Jessie was growing she was inspired by the music of classic jazz and pop artists like Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald and performed in musicals at school.

Journalist Jessie

Although she loved performing Jessie’s career took a sharp turn when she reached university, she decided to study to be a journalist (like her father) because she felt that her musical dreams were just that – dreams:

“I didn’t think it was ever going to be possible, it always broke my heart a bit. I couldn’t even do it as a past-time cause it made me feel too sick to only half-do it.”

That all changed when she got a phone call from an old friend, Jack Penate, who remembered how great her voice was and wanted her to sing back-up vocals for a live BBC performance. It went so well that he took the singer on tour with him across America, where she met the people who would help her realize her dream of singing!

Devotion

Teaming up with producer SBTRKT was the perfect move, a label immediately wanted to pick up the first song they created together, and the magic didn’t stop there. The first single to be released off her debut album was “Running,” and it immediately captivated listeners, for fans of artists like Adele or Florence Welch, Jessie Ware was an exciting new voice in music. Her second single “Wildest Moments” did even better and her debut album Devotion received glowing reviews from critics and fans alike!

Check out “Wildest Moments” from Devotion below!

Hm.. Probably the Boy Wonder/Robin from Batman, with Ron Weasley from Harry Potter at a close second.

"I Love it When You Cry" by Steve Aoki and Moxie. The music is really good and maybe unique. Also, the lyrics are a little stranger than the usual love song, and weird songs are my favorite. :P
