In the last six months or so Jesse has been playing shows with his new trio (Nick Barkley on keys, and Chris Flannigan on drums) and they have just released this new promo video to let you know what they're all about. Check it out!
Yesterday I released a new single here in the ol' website containing an "A Side" and a "B Side". The B side is a cover of my favourite Bob Dylan song, "Simple Twist of Fate". It can be streamed on my website by following THIS LINK. Soon to be available on all digital distribution (Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, etc).
But the song I am most proud of is the A side. I wrote "Today" for my wife Denise and played it for her for the first time on our wedding day this past September. I have had a great time recording it with some talented musicians. It will also be available on digital distribution soon!
I really hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do!
Jesse was recently a guest on Todd's Cafe in Kitchener, ON where we was interviewed by, and chatted with, his old friend Todd Donald. Jesse also performed 2 new songs live. We hope you take the time to enjoy both videos:
"Jesse's voice and acoustic guitar reverberate with passion and vitality. The rest of the band backs him up with spectacular musical skill, lush harmonies and energy. They're at home with Folk, Soul, Blues, Americana and more."
