"Musical storytelling" - Appetizer Radio
Music industry blogger & touring DIY musician, Jesse Lacy, is known for his live performances that showcase his riff based guitar picking, melodic vocals, catchy songwriting, and storytelling. He is just begining his career with one solo CD (First Steps, 2013), a new AAA / Folk single (Pack of Dogs, 2016), and several East Coast and Midwest tours under his belt.
"Pack of Dogs" harks back to the restrained but elegant, whimsical but earnest themes of "Wildflowers" by Tom Petty. At times, you can also hear the influence of Glen Hansard and Iron & Wine. Features Dane Clark (John Mellencamp) and Sam Bartlett (All Things Considered), along with Sam Loeck (Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra) and Wade Van Orman.
Away from his own songwriting and performance, Jesse Lacy is known for his support of fellow artists as an artist development and business consultant, music industry blogger, and playlist curator on Spotify & Youtube. He also conducts interviews with talented songwriters from all around the world to feature them on his weekly blog: #FridayFeature and Facebook group: Musicians Stronger Together (#MST), a Facebook community of folk musicians working together to succeed in the music industry.
