INTROducing....Jessie Ware: Singer/Songwriter
Give us 3 words that describe you best:
Worried, happy, loyal
So, can you tell us what it is you actually do?
I am a singer. I write songs and perform with my band.
...and you're how old?!?!
Nice! How did you get into this?
I have always sung but I took it seriously after I started singing back up for my friend Jack Penate. From then on it was a case of working out how to be a professional singer.
What’s the most exciting thing you've done in your career so far?
Singing to a sold out show in London.
What’s been your dullest job?
Envelope stuffer at a music PR company - only did it for a day but it was dull.
Where do you look/go for inspiration?
Friends, books, music, film
What took the most balls?
Deciding to try and be a working singer, working out how to sell yourself to people and leave my comfortable job as a PA and change profession.
The best advice you have for new graduates about to go into the 'real world’ is....
Try everything and anything you are interested in. It's never a bad thing to try things and then realise you don't want to do them forever. It's better than regretting you had never tried it.
