Artist of the Month- November- Jesca Hoop

Jesca's latest album art
This month we wanted to bring you another musical artist that we all enjoy here at the studio. I heard about her through Darryll, who heard about her through his daughter, Lauren. She is singer/songwriter, Jesca Hoop. When introducing others to music that I enjoy, I'm likely to try to compare them to other artists. However, I find it next to impossible to make such comparisons in this case. She has a truly unique sound that is haunting, yet sweet. Her voice complements the ethereal music in the background, creating a chorus of sounds that you're likely to hear deep within a mystical forest. We openly welcome Hoop's surreal sound to burrow into our creative hearts, to grab at everything melancholy and bittersweet, and to let those feelings surface.

For her more upbeat songs, the sound is less dark and more childlike and playful, which creates a nice balance. So, for a great example of all that her music has to offer, check out the music player below. Jesca Hoop is truly one of a kind and her newest album, The House That Jack Built, only further proves that she is continuing to do her own thing and defining her own art.
