Jesca Hoop ‘Seed of Wonder’ 24th May 2010

Jesca Hoop was born in Southern California to strict Mormon parents. She grew up singing traditional folk tunes in four-part harmony, but soon broke away from this background, becoming a homesteader and working with children. As a nanny for the children of singer Tom Waits and his wife and musical collaborator, Kathleen Brennan, Hoop gained both musical experience and notoriety; Waits said of Jesca, ‘Her music is like going swimming in a lake at night’. Following exposure through radio station KCRW, Jesca toured with Polyphonic Spree, Mark Knopfler, Andrew Bird and Elbow.
