Jesca Hoop’s “Memories Are Now” is the title track from her forthcoming label debut (out February 10th) and now’s the time to listen: here

Memories Are Now is an album of stunning original songs- raw yet brimming with energy, forged from rich life experience and emotional depth. Beautifully delivered by an artist that has steadfastly honed her unique craft of musical storytelling.

Jesca Hoop’s previously announced international tour dates in support of Memories Are Now span January 28th through April 6th, 2017.  The U.S. shows begin February 26th in Austin, TX and include stops in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Boston, New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The U.K. shows begin March 28th and include stops in London, Leeds, Bristol, Norwich, Manchester, Brighton, and Cambridge. (see dates below)

Jesca recently recorded an intimate performance on Marc Riley’s BBC 6 radio show, which features a sneak peek of “Pegasi” [watch here], and while your at it you should watch her poignant video for another Memories Are Now track, “The Lost Sky”.
