It has been a whirlwind couple of months for Jesca Hoop, the Tom Waits endorsed Californian who relocated to Manchester earlier this year and whose self-released album Hunting My Dress was released on November 30 to huge critical acclaim and heavy rotation on BBC 6 Music. Following a spellbinding sell-out show in London where The Observer noted that Jesca “spins a balance between play and poignancy, complexity and catchiness without breaking a thread”, a string of UK dates have been announced for the UK in February 2010, with a single 'Feast of the Heart' due for release on 22 February.
