Jumping Jesse Jones is a kick ass solo acoustic performer who’s guitar playing treads a thin red line between the funk bass of Larry Graham and the acoustic wizardry of John Renbourne. This unique hybrid of styles creates the effect of a full backing band. His voice veers precariously between Tom Waits and Bryan Ferry with songs dealing with such diverse subjects as child abduction and biblical visions.
He is also not adverse to mixing in a bit of overtone chanting (singing two notes at once) if applied tastefully! Past incarnations include bass player for London punksters The Cuckoo Jives and Loretta Heywood (Bomb The Bass). …”He flashes the kind of smile that’d merit a crook on the Texas highway, then ploughs into the sort of tunes that would soundtrack it too.” Art Rocker Magazine
