Jessie Ware has compared herself to Curb Your Enthusiasm comedian Larry David.

The 'Devotion' singer was nominated for two gongs at this year's Brit Awards after receiving nods for Best British Female and Best British Breakthrough but, in an interview with V magazine, the 'Devotion' singer said she still suffered from nerves and neuroses when it came to her recording career.

"I think it's a Jewish thing," she said. "I'm so neurotic - I'm like Larry David. I've gotten to a position where all these people are helping me, and I don't want to let them down.

"Really, deep down, I know there's nothing to worry about," she added. "Maybe now I'm in a position to start thinking about how I want to run my career, and how I want my music to affect people."

Ware, who recently revealed that she wants to collaborate with rapper A$AP Rocky in the future, is set to tour the UK this month (March, 2013). She will play:

Cambridge Junction (March 6)
Manchester Ritz (7)
Glasgow O2 ABC (8)
Birmingham Institute (9)
Oxford O2 Academy (11)
Bristol O2 Academy (12)
London O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire (13)
