Jessie Ware: My baby muse is great for writing hits
JESSIE WARE reckons the one major benefit of baby brain is it helps her to write hit tunes.
The Brit nominated solo artist admits she hasn’t quite nailed juggling fame and raising her one-year-old daughter — but says at least she’s got a hit record to show for her efforts.
The 33-year-old, who stormed into the top ten last year with third album Glasshouse, told Guilty Pleasures: ‘My balance isn’t right yet but I will get there. I struggle with being somebody in the public eye. It’s all-encompassing a lot of the time.’
Eager not to moan, the Say You Love Me singer added: ‘I love my job. I love being a mother. I will work out the balancing a little bit better as time goes on.’
Ware, who wed childhood sweetheart Sam Burrows in 2014, explained how those late night shifts with bubs actually came in handy.
‘I wrote the majority of the record once she was born. The sleep deprivation helped me become more creative and that was wonderful,’ she revealed.
As well as providing musical inspiration, Ware is happy she also has a little roadie to join her crew.
‘She’s going to be coming on the European tour,’ said Jessie.
‘She’s made me more driven and focused. I feel more confident in what I do. She’s definitely helped me to know myself a bit better,’ she added.
