Singer-songwriter and guitarist proves his depth with elements of folk, country, southern rock, and soul. Growing up in a naturalist community, Jesse Brewster had ample and focused time to delve into his love of music and guitar. At 10 years old, he moved to Berkeley and went from The Eagles, Willie Nelson, Bob Marley, Neil Young, and Bonnie Raitt to Guns N’ Roses and the hubris of the Beastie Boys. What came of it was an entangling of those two worlds. Fast or slow, heavy or soft, there’s an infectious pull in Brewster’s songwriting that is impossible to ignore.
