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.” - Robert Fontenot

Offbeat Magazine, New Orleans

Often compared to Tori Amos and Regina Spektor, Jesse Maclaine performs a variety of original songs and classics from the last 100 years of popular music. Her piano and mezzo soprano centered pop-rock, cool jazz, edgy folk, and soulful New Orleans influences are a powerful combination of familiar yet unique sounds. Solo or ensemble, she curates the perfect soundtrack for listening rooms, festivals, art galleries, corporate events, weddings, private parties, cozy cafes or the rowdy local brewery. Listeners are delighted by her radiant presence, earthy authenticity, innovative approach and passionate concerts.

In addition to original music, Jesse's concerts feature covers by popular artists like Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, Sara Bareilles, Otis Redding, Leonard Cohen, Fleetwood Mac, The Pixies, Fiona Apple, Allen Toussaint, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, The Beatles, Nirvana, Randy Newman, Bruce Springsteen, Meghan Trainor, Duran Duran, Olivia Newton John, Pearl Jam and Gnarls Barkley, among others. 

Notable venues of past concerts include: Taste of Colorado, Denver Zoo, Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver International Airport, VegFest Colorado - 1st Bank Center, Venus de Miles Festival, Aurora Arts Festival, Crestone Summer Music Festival, Tipitina's, The Howlin' Wolf, House of Blues, The St. Regis Aspen Resort, Fort Collins' Lincoln Center, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Chautauqua Boulder, and Santa Fe's Cowgirl Hall Of Fame.
