Jessie Ware’s Touring Devotion

Journalist-turned-singer Jessie Ware has some news for U.S. fans. The British songstress has planned another trip through the States in support of her Mercury Prize-nominated album “Devotion.”

Ware, who played a number of dates in the U.S. earlier this year in select markets, kicks off her fall headlining trek Oct. 17 at South Side Music Hall in Dallas and wraps in Las Vegas five weeks later at House Of Blues.

She’s come a long way from working at a television production company by day and moonlighting as a backup singer for a number of tours on the side.

“I had to quit my job because I had no holiday left,” Ware confessed to the Associated Press earlier this year.

But don’t worry – Ware is keeping busy this summer, and taking her R&B- and electronic-tinged sounds to festivals in the U.K., Europe and the U.S. before returning for her fall outing.
