The one time nanny for Tom Waits releases her latest album.



Top Tracks: Whispering Light, Four Dreams, Tulip



Album Info: Jesca Hoop calls her stunning sophomore album “the first time I've ever really invested in myself.” And she means that literally: After recording the nine-track disc in Los Angeles with veteran producer Tony Berg (Michael Penn, Aimee Mann, Nickel Creek), the northern California native packed her bags and decamped for England, where last year she released Hunting My Dress independently to an avalanche of acclaim from both the U.K. press and fellow artists such as Guy Garvey of Elbow. “That was the first time I really took control of my own life,” Hoop says, “and had enough faith to put not just my talent but my money toward running a campaign.” Source: Amazon
