Kew The Music - 10 July - Jess Glynne
It’s been a rollercoaster few years for Jess Glynne. I Cry When I Laugh is one of the defining British pop records of its era. It entered at number one, spawning 12million worldwide single sales, 39 weeks in the UK top 10, 2.5billion Spotify streams, a sold out UK arena tour, Brit, MTV, EMA, Ivor Novello, MOBO, Q and Glamour Award nominations. In 2018 Jess scored a second UK number one with her much anticipated second album Always in Between. With monumental style, Jess brokers the hinterland between pop, soul, R&B, funk and house. She has an extraordinary alchemical touch for turning out songs filled with hooks and harmonies that mean something to her and, at the same time, cast a spell over the rest of us.
