Jesse Marchant (aka JBM)

Singer Jesse Marchant (aka JBM) opened for Keane side project Mt. Desolation on October 27, 2010 in New York at Mercury Lounge.  As soon as he opened his mouth to sing for the first time, I was in love!  His voice is angelic and I immediately thought of Jose Gonzalez.  When I got home and did a little research on JBM, I noticed that every article mentions Jose Gonzalez.  That’s fine!  There’s room enough in the universe for both singers.  Like Jose Gonzalez, JBM has a voice that sounds like multiple people are singing a wall of sound and yet, the sounds you hear are merely his heavenly voice.  During his 30 minute set, JBM played acoustic guitar, harmonica and the drums.  I really recommend you check out his album “Not Even In July.”  You can read more about JBM here and here.  I am so happy to have discovered his music and I hope you will be too.  A live video of “Cleo’s Song” is coming soon, so stick around for that!

I met Jesse Marchant after his set and I told him how much I enjoyed his set.  He was super cool.  I wish great things for JBM.

  • "Going Back Home" live by JBM (aka Jesse Marchant) | According to G said,

    […] October 27, 2010was my first exposure to singer Jesse Marchant who goes by the name JBM. The moment he started singing, I loved what I heard instantly. Fans of Swedish singer Jose Gonzalez will love JBM. His voice is so beautiful and it sounds like multiple people are singing at yet, everything you hear is all JBM. I went out and got JBM’s album “Not Even In July” and it’s just as great as his live performance was. It’s great music to listen to when you are looking for something nice and smooth to chill to, it’s perfect for those contemplative moments in your life, and I can only imagine how many babies will be conceived while listening to JBM’s music. I definitely encourage you to check out his music because if any of these descriptions are your thing, you will love JBM. Here’s a video of him performing “Going Back Home” at Mercury Lounge in New York on October 27, 2010. Enjoy! […]
