Jesse Brewster’s sound fuses a Rock/Americana style he describes as “Tom Petty and Lynyrd Skynyrd get into a bar room brawl with Neil Young and John Mayer.” Jesse Brewster’s parents brewed his love for music at an early age. There was always something on the record player, be it Willie Nelson, The Stones or Bob Marley. At the age of 12 he started his first band with his brother Jim on drums and childhood friend Uriah Duffy (Whitesnake, Lyrics Born) on bass. “I can’t remember a time in my life when music wasn’t important to me,” he says. “It’s the greatest medium allowing you to express anger and rebellion, playful sarcasm, tenderness and beauty- it’s everything.” Brewster spent years touring with various bands as a guitarist and backup vocalist until a few years ago when he decided the time was right to break out on his own. “The singer-songwriter world is relatively new for me,” he admits. “While I’ve always loved singing, I was focused on the guitar.” Focused, that is, until he could no longer hold back the urge to create his own music. His creative spark was lit by a major catalyst: charity. He created his debut album, Confessional, as a benefit record to raise funds and create awareness of Polycystic Kidney Disease. One track in particular, “One Reason,” was written in memory of Brewster’s brother Jim who passed away in 1998 from PKD. “I have worked extensively with the PKD Foundation” he says, “since the release of the album, I help organize events and perform in support of the finding treatment and a cure for PKD.
