Ok, since he has started releasing public demos now I think its a good time to point some of you over to my friend Jesse Stephens. Over the last year and a half I have been listening to his music and continue to itch for him to get his album together.
It was a bit strange when he first asked me if I wanted to hear his music, you know the routine, your friend has some music and you dig it because he’s your friend. Thats what I was expecting at least. I was in for a real suprise and had no clue. From my first listen I was hooked. He has many of the qualities that I look for in musicians, the main one being transparency. I like honest music. I like music from the heart, sincerity.
Its truly one of the most mystical things about music when you can hear something “new” for the first time, and yet it is not unfamiliar, somehow you immediately accept it and it just becomes “home”.
Keep it up Jess.
Oh and don’t get a big head over this post ;)
