The Please, Please Me (Austin, Texas)
The Please, Please me are a Texan trio consisting of guitar, cello, drums and glockenspiel, all driven by the catchiness of singer Jessie Torrisi’s exquisite vocals and some smart, dynamic songwriting. The intriguing instrumental set-up has been wowing audiences and critics alike, with the band touring at a consistent pace. The seeds of The Please, Please Me date back to Torrisi’s solo album, Bruler, Bruler, a rootsy album that drew raves from the Americana press. Through all that touring and time spent together, the band became more than just Torrisi’s, developing a less-twangy, still poppy and eclectic sound for their new EP release, Shake a Little Harder, the crew’s first as just The Please, Please Me.
