Interview: Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen recently got locked in on her own tour bus. It wasn’t due to anything nefarious. Stepping off that bus for this interview while parked somewhere near Indianapolis, she blames a “jiggly handle” on the bus door. Jepsen recounts this story with the tone of a bemused road veteran.

In fact, it’s been seven years since Jepsen’s breakout hit “Call Me Maybe,” that irresistible cocktail of awkward self-deprecation, a pulsing beat, and club strings. Those who pegged Jepsen a one-hit wonder are now confused or chagrined, but it shouldn’t have been surprising that the Canadian singer, who comes to the House of Blues on Tuesday, would last this long. “Call Me Maybe,” like the best of her work, is expertly arranged, immaculately produced, and charmingly performed.
