3:00 pm – Jesse Kinch
We are so excited to host Jesse at our store. A long island native and amazing singer!
Jesse Kinch’s sound is an ode to the classic rock giants that came before him, but also artfully combines his diverse inspiration from artists across an array of genres.
It was this sound that wowed viewers, and the judges, when he won the first and only season of ABC’s singing competition show, Rising Star.
An early exposure to opera artists Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brighton gave him a deep appreciation for the “pureness and beauty” of music. Eventually, he picked up an acoustic guitar at age 6 and began performing at age 11, leading him to venues in New York City and a role playing the lead character in the off-Broadway musical The Story of Eddie Money.
His win on Rising Star at age 20 gave him the platform to continue his cross-generation brand of songwriting and performing. From soulful covers of classics like “I Put A Spell On You” to the more contemporary “Seven Nation Army”, Kinch was able to introduce old school rock to a young audience during his time on the show. Now, with his upcoming debut album on Curb Records, he infuses modern elements of rock into his songwriting and performance.
