NYC based pop duo LOOTE (Jackson Foote and Emma Lov) played to a hometown crowd at Irving Plaza on night one of two NYC stopes for Eric Nam’s North American tour! Jackson and Emma are on their way to big big things with pure pop tunes that get stuck in your head for days and on stage energy that will bring down any house they play in.
Kicking off their set with “Longer Than I Thought” sans Joe Jonas and punching it into overdrive with every song after that, LOOTE are proving to be more than just an opening act. They know how to get a crowd pumped up and singing along whether the fans are there for them or not.
Before singing “No Promises”, a smash hit co-written by LOOTE and LAUV, made famous by Demi Lovato and Cheat Codes, Emma quipped about wishing Demi were present to help sing. Emma is a powerhouse vocalist in her own right and she proves it with grace and raw emotion. Not only can Emma sing like an angel and write insanely catchy tunes, she knows how to shred!
Jackson and Emma’s songwriting chemistry is the most pure we’ve seen in a long time. They aren’t afraid to jab at each other’s personal lives for some of the best songs the radio hasn’t heard yet! “IDK Single” is a new track from their debut EP about getting out of a long term relationship and totally forgetting how to be single.
Closing the set with “Your Side Of The Bed,” LOOTE truly showed their artistry and left everything on the Irving Plaza stage. Their incredibly fun live show made us even more excited for Summer and what’s next for LOOTE!
If you can’t wait for more LOOTE, catch them at Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival at Jones Beach this August! Get to know Jackson and Emma better in our interview.
