Jesse Ware

What started out as a chance gig singing backup for an old friend quickly blossomed into a bona fide career as a leading lady. On the cusp of  pop startdom, Jessie Ware delivers the highly anticipated Devotion album. Already a hit in the UK, the single "Wildest Moments" has given Ware major buzz and promises to help make Devotion a hit with her growing US fanbase. Taking musical cues from the likes of  SADE and  Annie Lennox, Ware creates polished electro/neo-soul influenced songs that translate well in her live performance. Catch Jesse Ware live at Amoeba in San Francisco, Thursday April 11th as she performs songs from her new album, Devotion (out 4/16). Performance starts at 6:30pm. Free, all-ages show.

Ellie GouldingEnglish singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding performed at Amoeba Hollywood back in October, just a few days after her sophomore album, Halcyon (Interscope Records), was released. It was one of only a handful of performances she did during release week, and her fans turned out in full force. The line to get into her in-store performance followed the side of Amoeba along Ivar Blvd, wrapping around the block. For those unable to attend the show, it was also webcast live on Amoeba.com.

We just posted a video of Ellie Goulding's stunning, stripped down version of her single, "Anything Could Happen," from the in-store:

This in-store performance was Ms. Goulding's second at Amoeba. She performed at Amoeba San Francisco back in April 2011. At that point, she was just beginning her US promotion for her debut album, Lights (Interscope Records), which was released in March 2010 in the UK and had already reached number one there. That SF in-store was truly special and she decided to release it as an EP, Live at Amoeba San Francisco (Interscope Records).
