Along with this, the hotly tipped young singer-songwriter paid a visit to London’s Maida Vale Studios where he recorded a live session for Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, performing ‘How Could You Babe’, as well as previously unheard album track ‘Bad Words’ and a cover of the Big Star classic ‘Thirteen’.

The masterful debut album Goon was written in Tobias’ living room in North Vancouver, and recorded with added production and instrumentation in a range of studios in LA, San Francisco, Nashville, and Vancouver.
Tobias worked with a number of producers to realize his specific vision for the arrangement and performance of his songs. Jr White (Girls), Pat Carney (Black Keys), Jonathan Rado (Foxygen), John Collins (New Pornographers) and Ariel Rechshaid all came to the project in a similar way – drawn in by the strength of Jesso’s songwriting, they strove to find the right way to honor the songs’ honest emotional pulse, without overpowering their rawness.
