Jesse James is an American singer/songwriter who’s original tunes reflect outlaw country, folk, Americana, bluegrass, and rock. Bringing an edgy sound with titles like “See You In Hell” and “All The Drugs”, he flips it around with songs that pull on your heart strings, like “Gave It My Best” and “If Wishes Were Horses”. Jesse has been writing his own acoustic songs since 2009 and prides him self on living the songs he writes.
The Peacemakers are a group of musician friends that Jesse calls upon for original shows based on their availability. You’ll likely never see the same group of guys, if you attend multiple shows. You can also catch Jesse at your local brewery or bar playing a three hour, mixed set with originals and covers. Sometimes it’s a Guitar Pull style show with Jesse and one or two acoustic artists trading off songs on stage, other times it’s a duo or trio with any mix of lead guitar, drums, or bass. And yet still, there are other times where Jesse is playing solo. As a self proclaimed “Country Boy In A Metal Head’s Skin”, Jesse covers everything from Aaron Lewis, Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson and Tyler Childers to Slipknot, Alice In Chains, and Marilyn Manson, while mixing in Bob Marley, Sublime, and Snoop Dogg as well.
Jesse James And The Peacemakers have opened up for The Moonshine Bandits (twice), The Steelwoods, Big Smo, and have played the VIP stage at the Xfinity Theater opening up for Brantley Gilbert.
Jesse is currently focused on recording all 23 of his original songs at Vacation Haus Studios. When finished, the songs will feature artists that have appeared as part of the Peacemakers, as well as a slew of other musician friends wanting to add their parts to Jesse’s songs.
