Jesca Hoop 19 Mar 2010
Jesca Hoop
Performs from her latest album "Hunting My Dress"

She’s been described as “soulful, contemplative, spirited and witty”. Jesca Hoop is an American singer songwriter influenced by a range of genres. She was brought up in a strict Mormon family, grew up singing folk songs and four part harmonies with her siblings. A former nanny to Tom Waits’ children, he’s described her music like “going swimming in a lake at night”. She’s given up the California sunshine to reside in Manchester. She’ll be joining Jenni in the studio to perform live.
