Spring Owls is the stage name for empowering singer-songwriter Jesse Lacy. Through the release/touring of one album and several singles, Spring Owls has already performed over 400 concerts and developed a reputation for performing upbeat concerts to intimate audiences drawn to humorous banter and visual songs.

Generally described as contemporary singer-songwriter and adult alternative, SPRING OWLS still honors the 1970's singer-songwriter tradition, while reflecting contemporary artists: Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens, and Glen Hansard.

Before rebranding in 2018, SPRING OWLS was known as Jesse Lacy. On the back of a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2013, Jesse Lacy 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 six US tours and shared the stage with hundreds of acts including: Carrie Newcomer, Jason Wilber, Krista Detor, Tim Grimm, Lily & Madeleine, and Busman’s Holiday.

In 2016, Jesse Lacy released a single, PACK OF DOGS, on a compilation album he curated for environmental nonprofit Sustainable Indiana 2016. After the 2016 tour, Jesse went to the studio to finish his new album set to release in 2019.
