You I Want

Jesse Thomas is an L.A. based artist originally from Covington, Kentucky. In late 2008, with little money in her pocket she packed up her bags and moved out to Los Angeles by herself not knowing a soul when she arrived. After a few open mics around the valley and some very rough home-recorded demos, she caught the attention of producer Jim Roach.  Besides her poignant yet hilarious live persona, what makes Jesse so unique is her raw smokey voice that is truly all her own. It’s something most don’t expect from a girl under 5’ in her 20s. In Spring 2010 Jesse finished up her debut album “Hazel EP” which hit iTunes and stores nationally in September 2010. The album debuted in the top ten of the singer/songwriter charts and was featured on ITunes "New and Noteworthy," as well as the "Indie Spotlight." In early 2011 her song "You I Want" will be featured at Starbucks as their "pick of the week," nationally and through Canada. Her song "Stay" was featured on teen nicks "Degrassi" and her youtube video of the same song has generated over 80,000 views. She has opened for John Mayer, Owl City, Lights, and Angel Taylor.  Jesse will be back in the studio recording her next album in April after she returns from her showcase at this years SXSW. She is represented by Red Parade Music group.
