hmv's Next Big Thing... #8 Tobias Jesso Jr

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Tobias Jesso Jr and his mournful, gorgeous soul....

 

Who Is He?

A former session musician and jobbing player, Jesso Jr has only come to attention in his own right in the last few months, but he's already got some big-name collaborators. One-time Girls member JR White, The Black Keys' Patrick Carney and super producer Ariel Rechtshaid have all helped out with his debut album Goon, and, if you stick his name into Google, you'll find out that Adele is a confirmed fan of his...


 

Who Does He Sound Like?

Jesso Jr's voice has the richness of classic soul, with the likes of Marvin Gaye and Mama Cass in the mix, there's also the vulnerability of Nick Drake and the power of Neutral Milk Hotel. It's a heady brew. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

That voice. Just listen to it. It's absolutely incredible. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Damn right you can. His latest single 'How Could You Babe' is below for you and available digitally here
