Members: Jesse Younan
Sydney Singer/Songwriter Jesse Younan has just arrived on the acoustic scene, but his skill and appeal has already won him a loyal following.
Jesse's music defies boundaries. The intensity of his style invites comparisons to artists such as John Martyn and Elliott Smith yet Jesse's compositions are unique and distinct. He fuses folk & blues to create a sound in a genre of it's own.
Jesse's combination of haunted vocals and hypnotic guitar playing affects even the most diverse of audiences. His passionate performances reveal a gift for capturing the machinations of the human heart in song.
"the words, the subject matter, the pain & beauty of his songs make you want to just shut up & listen" Emma Nicholas, Inner West Courier
"Younan could have the most intricate guitar playing of Sydney's talented singer-songwriters" Sydney Morning Herald, METRO 29/4/05
"this is a brilliant, near-perfect album. Its an all-acoustic showcase of a man with impressive guitar chops, a fine ear for a chord change, and a lovely, tender voice. Above all it proves that, most importantly, Jesse Younan can write a bloody song" www.fasterlouder.com.au, 13/5/05
"Ecelctic as it is technically impressive, Younan is just at home playing moody-middle eastern tinged fingerpicking ditties as he is a sweet lovesick ballad or dirty acoustic blues" Yuri Koskov-Koskov, Scene Magazine May 2005
