Jess Wayne

  • Ojai, CA, USA
Band: Cover Band: Original Americana Blues Folk Indie

"Jess Wayne - electric bourbon folk with a jazz back."

Like a mellow Neil Young playing Folk/Americana with Leonard Cohen backed by Sting's jazz band. Known for a fusion of “Modern Folk, Blues, easy Jazz and a dash of Americana” with “wisdom and honesty.” Roots music journal No Depression proclaims “Jess Wayne Stuns with Debut, “Ride The River”… one of the most impressive and notable records of 2016." Music with a groove for adults who have lived and know that life is complex, messy, muddy, simple and beautiful - all at the same time. He is now touring with a band that was formed in Los Angeles in 2015 when Jess reached out to three world-class players for a recording and performing project. They liked the music and decided to stay. Currently the band includes John Matthew Rosenberg on piano and keys (Cab Calloway, Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Bonnie Raitt, Phil Collins, Huey Lewis, Larry Carlton, Bobby Blue Bland, Maria Muldaur and Dan Hicks), Jimmy Ledezma on percussion (Arco Iris, Los Pinguos, Wild Colonials and Huayucaltia) and Jesse Holsapple on bass (Dale Okerman, Tiran Porter - both of Doobie Brothers fame, James Durbin - American Idol, and Mootheband).
