TN:13 Jessie Ware & Dave Okumu

Wednesday, 25 July

In this episode of Tape Notes, John takes a trip to Deptfrod to visit Jessie Ware and Dave Okumu in Dave’s newly built studio to talk about how they recorded and produced the album 'Devotion'. 

Jessie and Dave look back to the beginnings of their creative relationship and discuss the excitement and trepidation of working together for the first time. We hear demo versions made by Dave ahead their sessions and also dig deep into some of the arrangements and the production philosophy behind the making of Jessie’s debut album. 

Tracks discussed: Devotion, Swan Song, No To Love
