Jessie Ware, The Invisible 

When: Sat., Nov. 16, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $17
Jessie Ware may be a newer face in the music industry, but with catchy pop riffs mixed with the increasingly trendy electronic sound, it hasn't taken long for her to gain a considerable fanbase. Ware is British, but her voice is so rich and smoky that she could easily be confused with an American soul singer from a bygone era. Her premiere album, Devotion, yields Feist-like soft tones and smoothness, but its love-adorned lyrics and '80s melodies could confuse you into thinking you used to put this album on in high school whenever you'd invite your crush over to make out. Though Ware's sound is somewhat retro, her songs embody a bittersweet complexity, haunting your ears in a way the Smiths or A Flock of Seagulls just can't. ROSE FINN
