Jessarae the guitarist and solo artist has announced his new EP Stand In The Rain will be released November 29th. The artists previous EP Nobody’s Human went into the iTunes charts at Number 4 this Summer while his 10 date UK tour in the Summer completely sold out including a headlining performance at London’s 02 Academy 2 Islington.
Jessarae has signed to Island Records for Stand In The Rain which is astounding considering he is only 21.
Some of the people he has worked with most young songwriters come dream of. These include; EG White (Florence And The Machine, Adele), Mike Crossey (The 1975, Jake Bugg) and Iain Archer (James Bay, Snow Patrol).
These influences are felt throughout Jessarae’s music and gives context for the creative sound he makes on the record label. The singer has announced a UK tour for February next year, dates are listed below:
Wed 15th LONDON, O2 Islington Academy 2
Thu 16th SHEFFIELD, Plug
Fri 17th BIRMINGHAM, O2 Institute 3
Sun 19th EDINBURGH, Electric Circus
Tue 21st MANCHESTER, Sound Control
Wed 22nd CARDIFF, Globe
Thu 23rd LONDON, Boston Music Rooms
Stand In The Rain was recorded in both LA and London which the singer has both lived in (originally coming from LA now residing in London). Jessarae co-wrote and played guitars on all the tracks for this new EP with tracks Done Try’na (Save A Life), Lens and both an electric and acoustic version of Stand In The Rain.
Jessarae has already supported 5 Seconds Of Summer, Frances and Matt Corby so this tour might be the last time to see the singer in smaller venues.
