Jessie Ware & Jesse Boykins III Sit In At NPR Music's 'Tiny Desk Concert' Series


NPR Music's Tiny Desk Concert series is perhaps one of the best musical things on the 'net right now. Allowing artists to strip down to the basics and perform their work for a small audience. The latest to pull up a chair to the Tiny Desk is our girl from across the pond Jessie Ware. The singer, who's currently on her North American tour in support of her latest album, Tough Love, stopped through to give a three-song acoustic set and even brought along a surprise.

Dressed cool and casual in a navy sweater worn over a blue collared shirt, which made her fit into the Tiny Desk aesthetic even more, she opened the set with a short but sweet performance of her song "Say You Love Me." But the audience got a special treat, as she pulled up her tour mate Jesse Boykins III to sing along with her track. An unrehearsed moment, Jesse simply contributed backing vocals to the stunning number, but it was still a magical moment nonetheless.

She continued her set singing solo, with only guitarist Joe Newman backing her up, and performed Devotion's "Wildest Moments" and her latest single "Champagne Kisses." If you're familiar with Jessie, then you know that each performance was pure heaven as her songs are tailor-made for intimate performances like this.
