Jesse Lynn Madera
Jesse Lynn Madera is a multi-faceted singer-songwriter who weaves a blend of pop, folk, blues, Americana, and jazz into her piano-driven compositions. Her vocals are powerful and haunting in one instant, and light, whimsical, and sweet in the next as she moves seamlessly and effortlessly across genres. A brief listen to just a few of her songs – the accordion-driven, colorful, and catchy “¡Hola Papi!”; the melodic, optimistic, acoustic pop sounds of “Revel;” and the dramatic virtuosic “Dante” – immediately telegraphs that this is an artist who goes where her muse takes her. Her influences run the gamut from troubadours such as Townes Van Zandt, Joni Mitchell, Dolly Parton, Brandi Carlile and Kris Kristofferson to ethereal sirens like Tori Amos and Kate Bush, to the grounded powerhouse voices of Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, and Anne Wilson.
