WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING
The 2009 Sixteenth Annual- Billboard Magazine- World Song Contest - Honorable Mention- presented to Jesse Kinch: In recognition of original composition for “Timeless Rider.”
New York Times- Jesse says, “My passion is writing, performing and recording rock music.” Recently, Jesse opened for Eddie Money at the Crazy Donkey in Farmingdale. Jesse was recommended for the role of “Young Eddie Money” by his high school’s music director and starred in Eddie Money’s musical autobiography this past summer. Aileen Jacobson, May, 2009
Newsday– “Young Eddie remarkably played by 15 year old Jesse Kinch could be a future rock star often sounding like the real Eddie at his peak.” - Steve Parks, June 2009
London Times Winter 2008- “Every so often, I hear something special that pulls me out from my burrow. I have just had that experience with an extraordinary song called “Timeless Rider.” “Timeless Rider” is a richly provocative and disturbing song, opaque, ambiguous, in touch with hidden terrors. It is a Rock Epic… a powerful composition. The composer performer is only 13. He has decided to enter the rock world on his own terms. ”Timeless Rider” is a piece of rock poetry. In my imagination, I can hear it being performed by the Doors. Kinch has a voice so haunting and pure that that it is sometimes hard to comprehend that it has been given to us by one so young. If he can produce and perform a song like this at age 13, what more is to follow in the years to come?”-Richard Heller/ British author, journalist and columnist
FM Los Angeles- “The guitar solo in ‘Timeless Rider’ is a powerful, moving, and breathtaking release that resolves with its dark theme and reveals a song of great hope and promise. It brings to mind the power and intensity of the legendary band, Pink Floyd. This boy has an old soul.”
Jesse Kinch - Quote Sheet- Page 2- Continued:
Long Island Press- Jesse Kinch... Lead singer, Jesse is an artist that’s a combination of Foo Fighters with a Layne Staley-esque voice. -February 2009
Free Press- “The 8 day test run at the Dix Hills Performing Arts Center resulted in a string of sold-out shows, and high accolades for 15 year old Jesse Kinch displaying major star quality in his performance.”- June 2009
Eddie Money: “Jesse is my protégé; he’s a rock god just like I was. Jesse was a natural fit for the lead in my play because of his experience… playing performing and singing since the age of 8.”
Good Times Magazine- “On a Saturday night in early November, young Jesse Kinch stepped onto the stage of one of New York City’s premiere rock clubs, where he was booked with the backing of the Warner Music Corporation. The pint sized rocker from Long Island whipped through a total of 25 songs in almost 45 minutes. Most of the tunes were snippets of solos and rhythms put together like a giant jigsaw puzzle on the history of rock. Kinch rocked the club leaving the crowd in awe, the crowd clamored for more, with drinks held high in a communal toast to a great performance.”- Glyn Emmerson
L.I. Press for Ryan Star Show- “Also on the show is Long Island kid virtuoso Jesse Kinch who could make many accomplished veteran guitarists go back to the drawing board with his already razor sharp chops. -Rick Eberle
