26 May 2013 1Xtra Arena / In New Music We Trust Stage
Jessie Ware - Radio 1's Big Weekend highlights
Jessie Ware's seductive vocals have been unmissable since her much talked about opening set on the In New Music We Trust stage at last years' Hackney Weekend.
It was after singing for Jack Peñate and SBTRKT that Ware decided to go it alone, releasing debut album Devotion in the summer of 2012. Loved for its effortless use of cool club samples, it was raved about by The Guardian who called it 'honest, heartfelt and warm'.
Part of a spine-tingling soul revival, she and contemporaries Lianne La Havas and fellow Derry act Laura Mvula are creating hits that surreptitiously work their way in to your hearts and minds. Katy Perry and Ryan Gosling have both been spotted at her gigs, so you'll be in good company as she plays this year's Big Weekend.
