birnCore Records Presents: Jesca Hoop
Though she had been writing songs from a young age, it wasn’t until 2004 that Jesca Hoop had the desire to share her songs on a broad scale. She settled in Los Angeles, where she honed her songwriting craft and developed a reputation as a unique and beguiling live performer of real substance. Though she now resides in Manchester, England, Hoop returned to LA to record her third album, The House That Jack Built.
Hoop has quite the growing collection of fans in high places. Tom Waits described her music as being, “like a four sided coin. She is an old soul, like a black pearl, a good witch or red moon. Her music is like going swimming in a lake at night.” Peter Gabriel took her to South America to sing with him, and has played as support on tour for Eels, Andrew Bird, Punch Brothers, and Elbow.
The Berklee Internet Radio Network (The BIRN) is a project of the Berklee College of Music and is designed, operated, and maintained by the Berklee community of students, faculty, and staff. All of The BIRN’s DJs are musicians, bringing a unique perspective to both the playlists and commentary.
