There is something about British soul singers; they cross colour lines and sing from a gritty place that anyone on either side of the pond can connect to.
I first heard of Jessie when I came across her hit ‘Wildest Moments’ in 2012. Her album, Devotion, was instantly a hit to me. I couldn’t stop listening to tracks like ‘Sweet Talk’, ‘Keep Me Running’ and ‘Night Light’. I saw her live in 2013 and adored her candor joking around with the audience between songs.
Her second album, Tough Love, came out today and I’m already hooked on the single ‘Say You Love Me’. Very simple and stripped down ballad that shows her singing poweress. She’ll be performing her in Toronto on Sat Oct 25th and I’m hoping to catch her show.
