"Joni Mitchell’s sly and perceptive confessional meets Fiona Apple’s confrontational doomed romantic, with little hints of Tori Amos’ gonzo earth mother and Carole King’s practical warmth." Offbeat Magazine

Renown for eclectic, adventurous, and distinctive music, Aural Elixir displays a wide spectrum of influences traversing the boundaries of rock, jazz, pop, folk, and world music. At just 21 years old, shortly after she moved to New Orleans, artist and visionary Jesse Maclaine founded Aural Elixir. While the Crescent City remains an indelible influence, she has been based in Colorado for over a decade. She continues to dedicate her life to Aural Elixir - successfully composing, performing, recording, and producing music which defies categories and uniquely shines as a refreshing alternative to the derivative, over-produced music that dominates our modern worldClassical training, jazz studies, pop sensibilities, and decades of experience as a professional entertainer inform Jesse Maclaine's compositions and performances, empowering her to work with the best local musicians and craft each concert into a spectacular special event. Critics, colleagues, and audiences of all ages rave about Aural Elixir's creativity, compelling songs, refined musicality, dynamic range, and stellar talent!

In addition to performing over 100 shows a year, Jesse was recently commissioned to compose and arrange a musical theatre score for Scattershot Entertainment, a popular NOCO production company. She is also producing new Aural Elixir music: some surprise original singles as well as "Instant Octopus" and "Throw Back the Covers" the next two CDs, blogging, creating content for the You Tube channel and social media, and promoting her current release: Better.
