Jesca Hoop is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, and a Californian who is now an adopted daughter of Manchester.
Her career has spanned five albums of finely crafted song writing, sung from a unique intelligence and an unparalleled voice, culminating in 2017’s hugely acclaimed Memories are Now.
Having spent much of the last 18 months on tour, highlights of which include a triumphant sold out show at Union Chapel, appearances at the Glastonbury and Latitude Festivals amongst many others, and appearing as special guest at Jose Gonzales’ Royal Albert Hall show, Jesca is currently working on her next collection of songs.
With her much anticipated follow up to Memories are Now set for release in the summer of 2019, Jesca Hoop heads out round the UK and Europe in October, including her performance at Sage Gateshead early in the run.
