BIO

Within today’s hyper-social conventions, Jesse is a lone wolf. Subtly enigmatic, on stage he is intriguingly comfortable yet remains unmistakably honest. His lyrics describe modern social archetypes, emotionally charged personal portraits and memories of a parallel existence. He’s been compared to artists like Bonnie Prince Billy and Father John Misty. Jesse grew up on a farm in Quebec’s rustic South-West and is now based in Montreal.

 

BIO EN FRANÇAIS

En marge des conventions d'un système hyper socialisé, Jesse est le loup solitaire. Énigmatique, sur scène il est mystérieux tout en étant d'une sincérité déconcertante. Ses textes peuvent sembler sombres, mais ils tentent de nous libérer de l'effet déshumanisant que peut avoir la vie moderne. On le compare à Bonnie Prince Billy et Father John Misty. Originaire d'un coin retiré du Sud-Ouest du Québec, Jesse vit à Montréal.
