Jessie Ware @ The RITZ Ybor 10/23/2013

JESSIE WARE @ THE RITZ YBOR ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2013

From tbt Soundcheck:  

It may be premature to slot Jessie Ware in for a Best New Artist Grammy nomination, but as a young, British pop singer who mixes soulful, old-school R&B with forward-thinking trip-hop beats, she certainly fits the profile.

Along with artists like Emeli Sande, Willy Moon, Olly Murs and The Heavy, Ware is leading a new class of U.K. soul-pop artists picking up where Adele and Amy Winehouse left off. Ware is already playing a slew of festivals this year, including Glastonbury and Lollapalooza, in support of her acclaimed new album Devotion.

And now she's coming to Tampa.

Ware will perform at The RITZ Ybor on Wednesday, October 23, it was announced Monday.  Tickets are $19.50-$22, and they'll go onsale this Friday RIGHT HERE.
