Jesse Dee's got soul

Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Etta James, Al Green, John Legend, James Hunter, Amos Lee - all influences to many soul singers, including James Dee.

his new album, Bittersweet Batch is due September 9 on 7 Note Records; which was coproduced by Dee and Jack Younger.

Dee's band consists of Matthew Joy (guitar); Jim Larkin (bass) and Matt Pie Beaulieu (drums) and also features guitar work by KEvin Barry (Paula Cole, Dennis Brennan); Dwight & Nicole; and horns from Scott and John Aruda.

Dee is also known for his artwork, but is putting that project on a temporary hold.

in his own words - “I’ve been painting longer than I’ve played music,’’ says Jesse. “I have studied art most of my life and have been doing both for a while, but I made my decision to focus on music.’’

You can hear "Slow Down" on his myspace page.
