UK singer Jessie Ware made her American live debut last night (12/10) at swanky NYC club The Box. Backed by a three-piece band — including bassist Rocco Palladino whose father Pino is currently on tour with The Who — Jessie wowed the crowd with her amazing set of pipes and great tunes from her much-lauded debut album, Devotion. (Which recently disappeared off Spotify, but Jessie says will be back soon.) The set included hit “Wildest Moments” (she thanked Katy Perry for tweeting it), “110%” (she talked about having to change the title to “”If You’re Never Gonna Move” because of Big Pun who is sampled in the song) and a cover of Bobby Caldwell’s 1978 single “What You Won’t Do For Love” that she pointed out she recorded with Sampha (they both appeared on SBTRKT’s 2011 album).

Jessie charmed the audience too, cracking jokes and chatting with folks between songs. She asked if Woody Allen really plays Monday nights at the Carlyle and, if so, why was anyone at her show? She also said Woody and Larry David were on her wishlist for who would come to her NYC show. Other factoids: Jessie told the crowd her sister lives in Brooklyn and has a “willy” in her bathroom that she “nicked from The Box.” No elaboration on that.

Jessie Ware’s next show is at Bowery Ballroom on January 17 (sold out) which is right around the corner from The Box. Jessie said she walked past it on the way to show and saw that Grizzly Bear were playing.

More pics from Jessie’s show are below, along with the recently-released Cyril Hahn Remix of “Sweet Talk.”
