In the past few months, the young piano man Tobias Jesso Jr. has made impressive appearances on The Tonight Show and Conan, and now he’s ready to take on TV shows elsewhere in the world. Jesso was a guest on the most recent episode of the BBC’s live-music show Later… With Jools Holland, where he played an entirely-solo version of “Without You,” the heart-squashed piano ballad from his very good debut album Goon. It was a lovely, spare rendition of the song, and Jesso made some truly intense piano-faces while he was singing it. Check it out below.
Goon is out now on True Panther.
