Jesca Hoop

Jesca Hoop - Words and Music - 2012

by Kara Manning

Despite sad circumstances, Jesca Hoop found an uplifting and inspiring way to work through grief: writing songs full of beautiful, disturbing and poignant images for her new album, 'The House That Jack Built'. The California native is now living in the UK, but came back to the U.S. for a tour with Punch Brothers, and Jesca was joined by Aoife O'Donovan when she performed a few of her new songs during an interview with FUV's Kara Manning.

Jesca Hoop's story is a great one-she came from a big Mormon family and got her start in the music industry when she gave her demo to her boss Tom Waits. Her new album 'Hunting My Dress' tells some great stories too, and Jesca talked with FUV's Kara Manning about those stories during a recent interview in Studio A.
