Jesse Lynn Madera
Jesse Lynn Madera is a multi-faceted singer-songwriter who weaves a blend of pop, folk, blues,
Americana, and jazz influences into her piano-driven compositions. Her vocals may be powerful and haunting in one instant, and light, whimsical, and sweet in the next as she moves seamlessly and effortlessly across genres. A brief listen to just a few of her songs will immediately telegraph that this is an artist who goes where her muse takes her.
“I love so many genres,” says Madera. “When I sit down at the piano to write, it’s a mixed bag. To me, music is music, and I go with how I’m feeling in that moment. The simple truth of human emotion and experience creates an endless palette. I listen to all kinds of different music and my influences are equally diverse (from Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush to Willie Nelson and Robert Earl Keen). Inspiration is everywhere!” Born in West Virginia, Jesse’s childhood years were rooted in music - her grandparents were self-taught musicians whose ‘stage’ was the back porch or living room. Many moves later, she and her husband reside in Los Angeles with their two sons and four-legged menagerie.
