Jesse Witney is a significant, soulful voice in Australia’s music landscape. Arising from a diverse background of Folk, Brazilian and Soul music, he has created an immediately identifiable and unique sound.
Blending Jazzy chords with catchy melodies, his songs can quickly become stuck in your head on high rotation. He has a dynamic vocal range and accompanied by his authentic charm, it’s easy to get drawn into his world as he confidently brings you in and shares the things that are important to him, such as care for nature, self determination and love.
The success of his crowdfunding campaign in 2018 allowed Jesse to travel to Brazil, and work with co-producers Thomas Mitchell (AUS) and Marcelo Müller (Brazil), where they recorded at Carolina Studios in Santa Teresa, with the best musicians of the Rio scene.
Three years in the making, this debut album, recorded between Australia and Brazil, embodies the joy, precision and creativity that people have come to know Jesse for.
