Last Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to a free Jessie Ware gig at Abbey Road Studios in London.
I've never been to Abbey Road Studios so this in itself was exciting enough. Sadly it was a bit dark when we got there on Thursday evening so couldn't take a picture on the infamous crossing.
Did you know there's a crossing cam though?
Check it out here
Anyway, as well as being excited to visit the Studios I was equally as excited to see Jessie Ware live.
The event was hosted by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts who have recently gone into partnership with Abbey Road Studios. You can read more about the joint partnership here
On arrival we were greeted with thirst quenching cocktails and delicious canapes. We really were spoilt!
I had wanted to see Jessie Ware for a while so it was great to finally get to see her perform live, especially in such a small and intimate gig. As well as having an incredible voice she was very warm and friendly to the crowd chatting away in between songs and engaging the audience in her performance. My favourite songs of the evening were 'Night Light' which she said she wrote for her boyfriend (although joked he didn't like it!!) and also 'Taking in Water' which she wrote for her brother. Have a listen to the lyrics, such a lovely song, she's obviously very proud of him.
Overall it was a really great evening and I would like to thank the Fairmount Hotels and Resorts for putting on such a great event.
On leaving we received exciting goodie bags containing a laptop case, moleskin notebook & Jessie Ware album to name a few items.
You can download her debut album from itunes which I highly recommend you go and do immediately!
