Last night Tobias Jesso Jr. showed the world he is taller than Conan O’Brien. Oh, he also played “Without You” with an 8-piece strings section and backing from friends Danielle Haim on drums and Ariel Rechtshaid on bass.
It has been nearly two years since Tobias posted the demo for “Just A Dream” on his YouTube account. In the time since, he recorded his debut album which features production from Chet “JR” White (formerly of Girls), Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, and Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Sky Ferreira). He has quickly ascended to playing on network television TWICE, both before the official release of Goon, which happens to be out TODAY on True Panther Sounds.
