It takes an unconventional talent to create a sound that is timely yet comfortably familiar. Toronto’s Jesse Gold manages to seamlessly blend pop music with R&B sensibilities, resulting in a sound that pays homage to an eclectic mix of long-time inspirations (Craig David, Lauryn Hill, John Mayer) and progressive contemporaries (Lucky Daye, Tom Misch, H.E.R.). There’s something for everyone in Jesse’s catalogue: wry songwriting, addictive melodies, silky vocals, and smart production. “I want to make music to be shared. The kind of songs you send to your friends before the track ends.”
