Modest pop urbanite Jessie Ware, whose first LP ‘Devotion’ debuted via Universal/Island in August, has now been signed by the also Universal-affiliated Cherrytree Records with a view to breaking the US.

She’ll begin the Stateside campaign by releasing new EP ‘110%’ in December, going on to play a number of American dates in mid-January.

Cue enthusiastic artist quote: “I’m extremely excited to be joining Cherrytree. Not only am I a huge fan of the artists already on their roster, but I have seen how they have nurtured and helped other UK artists. I can’t wait to start working with them, and I look forward to touring the US and playing to new people!”
