Jessie Ware (born 15th October 1984)
Jessica ('Jessie') Lois Ware is an English singer and songwriter best known for her singles 'Tough Love' and 'Say You Love Me'. She has released two studio albums and worked alongside a range of successful artists from the likes of SBTRKT to Nicki Minaj.
Personal Life: Ware was born in Hammersmith, London, and was raised in Clapham, South London. Her parents are Helena (a social worker) and John (a BBC Panorama reporter), who divorced when she was 10, and the younger sister of British actress Hannah Ware. Jessie has stated that her mum was a major support in getting her musical career off the ground. Ware went to at Alleyn's School in South London followed by the University of Sussex, where she took a degree in English Literature, and later worked as a journalist at the Jewish Chronicle. She gained useful contacts early on in her career by sharing a flat with Felix White of The Maccabees and through being friends with Adele. September 2014 saw her marry Sam Burrows. After a short period with The Jewish Chronicle Ware moved on to sports journalism at The Daily Mirror before moving on to working behind the scenes at TV company Love Productions alongside Fifty Shades of Grey author Erika Leonard (E.L James).
Musical Career: Ware began her musical career by doing backing vocals for Jack Peñate at live shows (many of which were on his tour in the USA) and Man Like Me. Ware was lated introduced to electronic artist/project SBTRKT through Tic - one of Peñate's bandmates. Ware then worked with SBTRKT on the single 'Nervous' in 2010, and therefore met Sampha - SBTRKT's main partner both on recordings and at live shows. They wrote the single 'Valentine' together which was then launched by Young Turks in 2011. These two singles, combined with extra work with DJ Joker resulted in Jessie Ware signing a deal with PMR Records. The 2011 album Ceremonials by Florence and the Machine also featured Ware.
Ware now began making progress on some solo material. October 2011 saw the release of her debut single 'Strangest Feeling', followed by 'Running' in February 2012 - the title track from her upcoming album. Two more singles followed, one of which (entitled 'Wildest Moments') was played as backing music to a montage of Andy Murray's third round win at Wimbledon that year - this was commented on by Ware as being the proudest moment of her career. Devotion, Ware's debut studio album, was released in August 2012 and reached number five on the UK Albums Chart. Devotion received further success the following month when it was nominated for the reputable Mercury Prize. A year later and Ware began touring the UK in March 2013 with support from Laura Mvula. European and American tours as well as festival appearances followed over the course of the year.
The first single from Ware's next album aired for the first time as Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Record' on BBC Radio 1. Entitled 'Tough Love', it became one of Ware's most popular singles to date. Ware's second studio album included work from a wide range of talented artists, including Kid Harpoon, Dave Okumu, Julio Bashmore, Miguel, James Ford, Nineteen85, Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran. Entitled Tough Love, the new record came out in October 2014 and got into the top ten once again - peaking at number nine on the UK Albums Chart.
Brit Award nominated Jessie Ware performs her 2012 hit single 'Wildest Moments' live during her set at Glastonbury Festival 2015. The song featured on her Platinum debut album 'Devotion' also released in 2012.
