Jesse Peters

In the world of music, there are two types of performers, those who play for themselves, and those who play for their audience, Jesse is definitely the latter. With his soul bared at each and every performance his musical sincerity draws in anyone willing to let go and come along for the ride. Textures that honour Jesse’s great influences like Ray Charles and Billy Joel are fused into the modern sound that Jesse creates, and recreates every time he sits in front of a piano and microphone. Blessed with a natural ability to convey both brilliant musicality, and true emotion with his voice, Jesse draws on life and tradition to craft the future. The combination of these two talents creates a recipe for excitement, exploration, and interaction that has left audiences across North America standing in the aisles and screaming for more.

At the age of 17 he received an award for outstanding musicianship at MusicFest Canada from the great Diana Krall. By the age of 21, his first group, The Peters Drury Trio, had released two very successful recordings that were distributed in Canada, the United States as well as in Hong Kong. After leaving the PDT, Jesse became known as the face and voice of Edmonton-based funksoul artist Paramedic. Both Paramedic's debut album and sophomore album were nominated for Western Canadian Music Awards (2006 and 2009). He released his first solo album in 2011 (Face Time) and followed that up with a sophomore release in 2013 (Swingtime). He's had music featured on TV shows such as Arctic Air(CBC), Continuum(Showcase), Bitten(SyFy) and SEED(City TV).

Touring has taken him all over North America and across the Pacific to China. Highlights have included the prestigious Glenn Gould Studio Theatre in Toronto, Canada (presented by Massey Hall), performing in New York City and a tour of major centres in China.
