Latitude Review: Jessie Ware

Jessie Ware's Latitude set shows just how far the south Londoner has come.
It was a far cry from four years ago when Ware took to Glastonbury's John Peel stage as a backing singer for school pal Jack Penate.
Ware has made the leap into the limelight and showed the Obelisk Arena's crowd just what it meant to her, lapping up the atmosphere, a bright smile beaming from beneath her trademark sculpted brow and full fringe.
The 28-year-old from Brixton burst on to the stage under the grey Suffolk skies enchanting the crowds with hits including Wildest Moments and Running from her top-five album.
Devotion, released a year ago, propelled Jessie on to the music scene securing her a spot on the Mercury music prize shortlist (an award she missed out on when fellow Latituders Alt-J secured the coveted prize).

Taking the crowd on a journey, gliding through British R&B, pop, soul and electronics her etheral beats captured the hearts of the Latitude crowd. Ware isn't touring and so the only way to see her is at festivals across the UK this summer.
And with V Fesitval and Bestival next on the list, there is still a chance to catch her. Based on her Latitude set, it will most certainly be money very well spent.
