Have you heard the one about a Mormon-raised woman who got a job as a nanny to the kids of Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, and who then went on to release Hunting My Dress, one of the most acclaimed underground releases of 2009? No? Well, then, say hello to Jesca Hoop, a Californian now relocated to Manchester.

The last time we saw Hoop was at an Other Voices jaunt in Dingle, where – dressed up to the nines in an evening dress and a hairstyle that could easily have been a civil engineering prototype for a multi roundabout/split-level/ bypass kinda thing – she delivered a set of songs split between the fey, the fertile and the real deal. Her new album, The House That Jack Built, will, no doubt, be dipped into.
