Biography

For Jessie Ware singing is the easy part. Uncannily beautiful vocals have been pouring out of this London native since she was a kid. It’s the path from Girl With That Voice to full-fledged pop star – as she’s become back home in England in the last year - that’s proved trickier. In the wake of ecstatic advance American press, Ware prepares to release her US debut, the ... Read more in Amazon's Jessie Ware Store

Product Description

Product Description

A regular collaborator of SBTRKT, English singer-songwriter Jessie Ware's debut album is a unique offering that combines her distinct vocals with electronic pop and dance. Devotion features the hit singles "Running" and "110%". This is a limited edition digipack version of the album, which arrives in a cardboard sleeve.

BBC Review

Whilst she passed by several tipsters at the turn of the year, missing the BBC’s Sound of 2012 and the Brit Awards’ Critics Choice category, Clapham-raised Jessie Ware has been steadily growing into south London’s own Sade-in-waiting ever since her 2010 emergence.

That breakthrough was as a guest on SBTRKT’s track Nervous, and Ware would collaborate with the masked producer again on his eponymous album of 2011, as well as with Joker on The Vision.

Her gorgeous duet with Sampha, Valentine, was a standout single of 2011, and Ware’s own solo material prior to this set’s release, including non-album cut Strangest Feeling, laid impressive foundations.

Which have been built upon brilliantly: Devotion is the sort of sophisticated, soulful pop record that comes along all too rarely, a collection that never hides the heart on its sleeve. Down-tempo it may be, but no listener will come away downcast. Overlook the relatively low chart positions for Running and 110%, as they’re hardly indicative of the quality on display.

Devotion begins with delicately plucked guitar lines and trebly percussion, the title track navigating a narrative thread of a love affair coming apart at its seams. The touch of The Invisible’s Dave Okumu can be felt repeatedly – as the main producer, he lends some of his group’s brand of exquisite vulnerability to tracks like the sweat-and-tears-swollen Taking In Water, the restrained funk purr of Sweet Talk, and the Olympic-montage-soundtracking single Wildest Moments.

Wildest Moments offers listeners the opportunity to witness the frills-free appeal of this singer via two senses, as its video focuses exclusively on Ware throughout. It’s an effective visual metaphor for the album as a whole: the singer with nowhere to go, nowhere to hide. She turns with the world and can’t step off, so release comes in the form of these songs.

Ware never stretches for an out-of-reach note; she never gives her songs over to hyperbole or bombast. Throughout, there is a well-measured, well-mannered elegance that engages with more efficiency than many an artist dressing their material up as The Next Big Thing. There's nothing "next" about Ware: she’s here, now, and superb.

So i cottoned onto jessie ware through SBTRKT as i'm sure most others have, and i thank goodness that i did!

i watched her perform their track nervous at the boiler room on 'that video sharing website', and that made my mind up!

i've got really varying tastes in music, and in fact when i bought this album i also bought frank oceans channel orange, drakes take care, kate bushes the whole story, alex clares the lateness of the hour and a rock album by american head charge (if you know this band then you know they are miles apart in taste from the other albums named!).

baring that in mind, and how good the other albums are, i can safely say for me, that ms wares work is stronger and more connective than any other i have listened to for quite some time!! i love frank ocean, and kate bush, (in fact i'd class myself mainly a QOTSA fan first and foremost) but blimey - POW!! haven't stopped listening to Devotion since buying it! the sequence of events went - listened to frank, then drake,then kate, then jessie.... sorry alex clare, your album might be great but i haven't changed cd in my cd player since putting jessie's cd in!!

personally i connect with this album.
i heard someone (maybe it was an interviewer recently) liken her work to that of Sade.. i'd have to agree, and the uk thanks you.. forget about that tv karaoke contest, in Jessie Ware we trust!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful album 13 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like old school soul then this is a great album. Although it has an old school feel the arrangements have a lovely original feel to them. Her voice is beautiful and she's just as amazing live!

4.0 out of 5 stars love this album 31 Jan 2013
Format:MP3 Download
The production is beautiful but not overdone, the bass on the opening track devotion draws you in to one of those early morning club rundowns that i dimly remember from my youth while something i side walks you into the beginning of the day its a fantastic start to a fantastic record that shows 'pop' can be more than just repetitive lyrics and empty concepts...and Jesse Ware can actually sing

5.0 out of 5 stars Jessie Wares it well ! 13 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every so often, an artist arrives that is a bit special. Different, refreshing, a bench-mark moment, if you will. 'Devotion' by Jessie Ware is sophisticated, emotive and a very sensual statement. Apart from a couple of stage appearances with princess of dubstep, Katy B, Jessie Ware is a slight unknown on the musical radar, but at the same time is filling a rather large gap in the market.
'Wildest moments' sets the bar almost impossibly high, early doors. A beautifully pieced-together electro power ballad about seduction and sexual adventure which has an updated feel of Judy Tzuke's 1979 epic 'Stay with me till dawn.'
This LP ticks all the modern era genre boxes along the way; pop, drum+bass with garage and dubstep also catered for.
Here is hoping she makes it to the tough second album.
