Jesse Dee is an R&B and soul singer-songwriter from Boston, Massachusetts. He has played as the opening act for Gospel/R&B/Soul legends Al Green and Etta James, and maintains a steady U.S. and international touring schedule. Jesse Dee’s current album entitled On My Mind / In My Heart is available online and at various retail outlets.
With his new relationship with Alligator Records, he will tour widely, bringing his modern, fun and timeless soul music to clubs, concert halls and festivals all over the world. Dee is proud of the songs on On My Mind / In My Heart, saying the music is a perfect representation of where he is as an artist. “Soul music is capable of touching the greatest and most diverse group of people,” Dee says. “All the best soul music is based on shared experience. Songs have the ability to affect people, shine a light, lift them up, and push them forward. There’s hope in these songs,” he continues, “and people need that now more than ever.”
