THE STORY

JESSE LACY is a serial creator. He's an empowering songwriter from the United States that is described as a “musical storyteller” (Appetizer Radio) and "songwriter with a cause" (The Herald Times) because he produces music to inspire passionate people to positively impact our world as they pursue their dreams.

Jesse Lacy experiments with his history in classical, jazz, and pop music when composing solo and for his contemporary singer-songwriter band. He honors the 1970's singer-songwriter tradition, while reflecting contemporary artists: Iron & Wine, Glen Hansard, David Gray, Cat Stevens, and Tom Petty. On the back of a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2013, Jesse released his first album (FIRST STEPS). This was followed by a solo tour of the East-Coast consisting of 20 cities in two months. Since then, Jesse has been on many more US tours with acts such as: Mighty Brother, Brittany Gillstrap, Faith Evans Ruch, Lauren Pratt, and many others. 


In 2016, Jesse released a single, PACK OF DOGS, on a compilation album he curated for environmental nonprofit Sustainable Indiana 2016. Other artists on the compilation included: Lily & Madeleine, Carrie Newcomer, Jason Wilber, Krista Detor, Tim Grimm, Mighty Brother, Eric Lambert & Friends, Busman’s Holiday, Tom Roznowski, David Michael Kirk, Gus Moon, Travis Punterelli, Brad Leftwich, Bigfoot Yancy, and The Matchsellers.


Jesse ​Lacy also has been involved in many other projects including: #GivingBack Community Concert Series to help non-profits raise money, managing, booking, and doing publicity for artists and films from all over the world, and a playlist creation and interview blog series called #FridayFeature. Jesse is also the founder of ON THE SAVVY—a lifestyle blog for creatives , sharing his tips and hacks from performing over 400 concerts across the USA and representing several films and touring acts from both abroad and the USA.

Appetizer Radio - Craft Music Discovery (FEATURE)

"Emerging folk artist, Jesse Lacy's style of musical story telling is a reflection of legends like Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, with a tinge of Ben Folds." - Grant D. Grant (Appetizer Radio)


"To start things off, we'll play a song that exemplifies the musical style of Jesse Lacy which features folk roots, acoustic rhythm piano, acoustic sonority, major key tonality, a vocal-centric aesthetic with a mellow rock instrumentation.” 
- Pandora Online Radio


"Jesse Lacy is simply one of the nicest, most ‘up’ people we’ve featured. This young man always has a great big smile on his face and his music often reflects his optimism and humor as seen through the eyes of a man who is wise beyond his years." 
- Suzette Weakley (Bloomington Songwriter Showcase)

Incredibly Promising 4/5
Remy S. -2013

     "Grassroots singer-songwriter Jesse Lacy is sure to make a bold impression on his debut album First Steps. Lacy's combination of poetic lyricism and softly assertive vocals makes each track both a meditation on youthful hopefulness and coming-of-age nostalgia. His pleasant audial resemblance to Jason Mraz additionally makes his sounds more accessible to those unfamiliar with his work. From the slowly melodic "Nobody Gives It Time" to the amped up never-miss-a-beat energy of "Like I Did," Lacy gives every listener hope for even greater things to come and a hypnotically soothing record to listen to in the meantime."


Unique and Memorable 5/5
Anne S. -2013

     "After listening to First Steps for the first time, I found myself thinking of the lyrics and looking forward to hearing each song again – to me, that’s the sign of a really good album.. Each song is distinct with well-developed character – each like a slice of life, and are all beautifully played. Lacy brings a unique voice to the music world – let’s hope this vibrant first album will be just the start of a full catalog of recordings from this talented artist."


  Bold First Steps 5/5
Evan Knox -2013

  "Really lovely music. Soothing but upbeat. Jesse draws you into his life and family in a warm way."


  Something For Everyone 5/5
Kylie H. -2013

     "Jesse does a great job with having something for everyone. If you want to just relax and listen to something calming or jam out with a group of friends, then he has it all. His music includes amazing vocals, instruments, and beautiful lyrics that help you see his side of things. He is a great artist and you can expect great music from him! I saw him live once in my hometown and he sounded just as good as his CD.... When does that happen?"


Original and Moving 5/5
James *C* -2013

     "On this debut album the singer/guitarist/songwriter Jesse Lacy does more than just takes his "first steps"; indeed, he arrives already with a unique sound and direction for his music. Having recently toured the East Coast for the release of this album which contains his mixture of alt-folk and rock, the songs herein will move you. The slowed down "Better" is an excellent track that Jesse uses to show off his rockin' side. Recommend this album; try it and be moved."
