Junior Mesa - All or Nothin

Junior Mesa channels a timeless sound by way of modern means. Rather than comb stacks of record stores, the 20-year-old Bakersfield, CA singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist culls influence from a YouTube search history spanning everyone from Wes Montgomery and Ella Fitzgerald to Jimi Hendrix and Sly & The Family Stone. Under this digitized classic spell, he not only sings with shuddering soul, but he also plays guitar, drums, piano, and bass with understated and instinctual virtuosity.
