Jesse W. Johnson plays hooky-yet-dark rock & roll with the tiniest little twinge of country twang. Johnson is a veteran of the Chicago scene, having reached local acclaim fronting Jet W. Lee, and his experience is immediately apparent upon first listen. As a solo artist, Johnson presents tight, muscular songcraft with beautiful melodies and surprisingly dark lyrics. Most of all, Johnson does something not so common today, tell a story, and it’s thoughtful word choice in his music that helps the listener personalize each song. Jesse just released an EP called Primal Scream and is currently touring in support of it.
