WUMB Presents Jesse Dee


Thursday, July 20th, 2017

See Jesse Dee perform a stripped down set in an intimate performance setting! Hear him play some new songs along with some old favorites that he first played at The Burren nearly 15 years ago! He will be joined on stage by several guest performers and some of the area’s local luminaries of the music scene.     

Don’t miss what is sure to be a special night of music!

  Boston's Jesse Dee is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing soul man-a modern day trailblazer inspired by the old school. Dee's passion is exploring and updating soul music for contemporary audiences. With his warm and honest sound, his instantly memorable melodies and positive, slice-of-life lyrics (evoking the heyday of the Brill Building songwriters), he accomplishes just that. His inventive, hook-filled songs are delivered with buoyant, youthful exuberance. Live, he always brings down the house, and keeps his ever-growing fan base coming back for more. His band lays down driving, infectious grooves while Dee's expressive vocals put him in a class by himself. On the strength of his fervent live shows, Dee plays to packed clubs in New England and has toured across Europe, earning new fans at every gig. The Boston Herald declares, "Dee has an explosive voice. He possesses a powerful, raspy tenor and an uncanny phrasing ability that can't be taught."

  With his latest album, ON MY MIND / IN MY HEART, his first for Alligator Records, Dee is now poised to break into the minds and hearts of music lovers across the country and around the world. The album, eleven original songs produced by Dee and Jack Younger, is a sweet soul masterpiece full of good vibes and funky, joyful music. Like Sam Cooke, Dee writes about real life with true emotional poetry. His lyrics are set to toe-tapping melodies with horn charts channeling The Memphis Horns and 1970s-era Van Morrison. Dee has opened for soul greats Al Green, Solomon Burke, Etta James, Bettye LaVette, and blues rockers Los Lobos and the J. Geils Band, and has shared stages many times with soul singer James Hunter.

"Tough-but-tender soul and rollicking, rootsy R&B...infectious, revival- meeting furor." --Boston Globe 

"Jesse Dee delivers authenticity with every note." --San Francisco Chronicle 

"Dee doesn't sound like anybody singing soul music today or yesterday. Honey-coated, pure, searing soul, testifyin' ballads, and upbeat anthems." --No Depression
