Jesse Davidson was only 16 when he was nominated as a finalist in Triple J Unearthed High’s competition, and since then has released two EPs and toured locally and internationally, performing at Falls and Laneway festivals, Groovin the Moo, and The Great Escape festival in the UK.
In 2015 he released his sophomore EP ‘Lizard Boy’, an assured departure from the melancholy folk of his debut, and spent the year relentlessly touring the release. A year later Davidson was writing and recording his debut full length album, splitting his time writing at his house in the lush Adelaide foothills and recording in a small apartment in the suburbia of South London’s Canada Water.
Davidson’s mix of contemporary and classic rock aesthetics has awarded him praise from critics and fans alike, but the centerpiece for his music is his raspy baritone, which can change from a falsetto to a booming roar in an instant. Davidson finds strength in the versatility of his music and emphasizes these dynamics in his writing, often switching drastically from subdued acoustics to roaring John Bonham-esque drums and pulsating synthesizers. With his debut album set for release in 2017, Jesse Davidson is set for a massive year.
