Jesca Hoop To Tour With The Eels This Fall

Jesca Hoop will be touring the US supporting The Eels beginning September 22nd in Philadelphia (World Café) with additional shows in Boston, September 24th (Royale Boston), New York City, September 25th (Terminal 5), Chicago, October 1st (Metro), and wrapping up in Los Angeles on October 12th at The Music Box Theatre.

This will be Hoop’s first North American tour since releasing "Hunting My Dress" earlier this summer. "Hunting My Dress" made its American debut on July 27th to rave reviews. USA Today hailed, “A protégée of Tom Waits, Hoop has a wispy, haunted soprano and a flair for the sort of offbeat, grainy-atmospheric arrangements that can get singer-songwriters pegged as cult darlings. But the songs on Hunting, released abroad last year, also have a melodic potency that suggests greater potential.” NPR stated, “Jesca Hoop’s music feels of the moment and of the past, often at the same time. Hunting My Dress presents both a continuation and expansion of her core sound and in the process sounds like her most fully realized recording yet.”

Hoop is currently a featured artist in the Whole Foods Artist Discovery Series. Customers of the chain can purchase Hunting My Dress in Whole Foods Markets nationwide. The Artist Discovery Series handpicks up and coming talent and gives their music a platform to reach the Whole Foods audience with premium placement in their stores.
