There's a soulful urgency to his powerhouse vocal delivery, an honest passion, and a lyrical sensitivity that instantly gives Jesse Powell an edge over many of the current crop of young male vocalists. Call it a combination of his natural gift and the teen years spent honing his craft but whatever the root of this masterful singer's talent, he delivers.
Jesse Powell knows how to get inside a song and reach its lyrical essence. The result is an emotionally satisfying listening experience.
Born in Gary, Indiana, Jesse's earliest introduction to music came via his family. With his mother, two sisters and younger brother, Jesse sang in and around the city on local talent shows. "I don't remember a time when I didn't hear music," says Jesse, who mentions hometown natives
The Jacksons, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway,
Stevie Wonder and
Aretha Franklin among his influences. "Honestly, I never considered doing anything other than music. I kept my fingers crossed that I could make a living doing it..."
Throughout his school days, Jesse Powell sang with the family group, moving to Los Angeles in 1993 to fulfill his musical dreams. A stop in Kansas City on the way brought him in contact with up-and-coming writer/producer Carl Roland, and the pair began working together upon their arrival in L.A. "I didn't have a plan when I got to Los Angeles," Jesse recalls. "First off, I had to get a job... and then I performed at talent contests, industry showcases, just wherever I could..."
Jesse got his break when Silas Records' founder Louil Silas, Jr., was blown away with his performance at an artist showcase. Silas immediately heard the honesty in Jesse's super soulful vocal delivery. "Believe me, I was nervous!" Jesse smiles. "But it went well and shortly afterwards, Louil offered me a deal. That's when I knew all the work I had been doing on my career was not in vain." The beginning of a musical collaboration between the two was soon born.
With the combination of a vocal maturity that belies his youth, his unpretentious, for-real kind of personality, natural good looks, and an innate soulful approach to his music, Jesse Powell has truly only just begun!
