Ware With All

Jessie Ware

It seems that in the past few years, we've been treated to this string of vocally competent, fearless female singer/songwriters who we fall in love not only for their effortless vocal talent but also their honest disposition and raw songwriting. Lyrically, vocally and melodically - we've got another must-hear to add to the list.

If you've enjoyed watching the skyrocketing careers of Adele and Lana Del Rey - then you'll love the upcoming debut album and sultry, acrobatic vocals of London R&B and soul-pop musician Jessie Ware. As the new diva on the block, Ware is starting slow (like many of her jams) - releasing sexy radio-ready and heart string pinching tracks that feel as if they've stepped out of an early 90s time warp. Mary J. and Mariah-reminiscent vocals, echoey beats and keyboard groove effects make me think the 25 year-old songstress is taking pages from the musical era which most likely fed her appetite to perform.

I already can't get enough of her honest ballads and their full-bodied melodies, especially her latest single, "Wildest Moments," where she milkily croons the romantic conundrum: "Baby, in our wildest moments/ We could be the greatest/ We could be the worst of all." Check out her new album Devotion on August 20th. I foresee big things for this one.
