True Panther’s Tobias Jesso Jr Debuts song via Blogotheque

In Dean’s words:

Tobias Jesso Jr is a songwriter, piano player, and singer from Vancouver, Canada who has just signed to True Panther Sounds and will release his debut album in the spring of 2015. He recently went to Los Angeles and recorded Takeaway Session for La Blogothèque at the Kibitz Room of Canter’s Deli. The live performance is the first video footage online of Tobias and features a new song from the forthcoming album, ‘Without You’ and the previously released Just A Dream’.

Since posting his first demo online for ‘Just A Dream’ in 2013, Tobias Jesso Jr has been working with JR White (Girls) and several other notable producers on his debut album in studios in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver. In July he shared his latest song ‘True Love’ which was named Best New Track by Pitchfork, called “Stunning” by Consequence Of Sound, with NME adding, “‘True Love’ is little short of wondrous. It recalls peak-period Elton John in its stark simplicity, with a bit of Ryan Adams and Harry Nilsson chucked in for good measure.”

Whilst working on his album, Tobias launched a singles subscription series. The premise is simple – $5 for 5 (plus shipping) of his unreleased, unadorned piano demos pressed onto flexi 7” singles and mailed to subscribers in 3-week intervals. There are a few subscriptions left of the pressing of 300. The first song, ‘Bad Dreams’ is already in the mail…. Sign up HERE

Tobias will be also making his live debut at Pitchfork Paris Festival this year.”
