Jessie Ware and her rich, soulful voice have been enrapturing her audiences since she hit the music scene as a solo artist in 2012. Keeping the stage set basic, she allows her talent to receive the spotlight as she tells stories and interacts with the crowd between songs. She lets there be no doubt that her songs are personal, and she wants every person in the room to experience the moment.

Her sound and the feeling behind her music often put her in a soul/R&B category, but she easily flows into pop music as well. The list of artists with whom Jessie has worked grows year after year. Her peers have recognized her talents, and her work has been heard during a highlights montage at Wimbledon, on the Polish version of X Factor and at many music festivals throughout the world. Outside of her music career, Jessie keeps busy working on a regular podcast - Table Manners with Jessie Ware, a kids' clothing line called Anyware Kids, cookbook writing, curating a monthly show on BBC Radio and serving as a UK ambassador for UNICEF.
