'First Steps' - May 22, 2013



Music industry blogger, playlist curator, and touring DIY musician, Jesse Lacy, is known for his amiable disposition, catchy songwriting, intimate performances, and support of fellow artists.

He experiments with his history in classical, jazz, and pop music when composing solo and for his contemporary singer-songwriter band. Jesse Lacy, honors the 1970's singer-songwriter tradition, while reflecting contemporary artists: Iron & Wine, Glen Hansard, and Tom Petty. He has been awarded with a 2016 Folk Alliance International​ Conference Scholarship and is working on his second full-length album.

After receiving his bachelor's degree in English (poetry) and music from Indiana University, Jesse Lacy invited ten friends to the studio to record. The project quickly grew into his debut album, ‘First Steps’–inspired by Vincent van Gogh's painting of a child taking first steps toward his gardening father.

Following the release on his own father's birthday, Jesse Lacy took his zero-carbon footprint album on a three month East Coast tour, where he performed 16 dates in 13 different cities. After returning to his hometown, Jesse Lacy started working on his second album at Midwest Audio with many talented artists including: Dane Clark (John Mellencamp, James Horner), Wade Van Orman, Sam Loeck, Hoosier Darling, etc.

​​​Away from ​his own songwriting and ​performance, ​Jesse ​Lacy is known for his ​support of fellow artists (as a music industry blogger and playlist curator on Spotify & Youtube) and local non-profits (with his #GivingBack Community Concert Series). He conducts ​interviews with talented songwriters from all around the world​ and features them on his weekly blog​: #FridayFeature. Jesse Lacy is also the founder/administrator of Musicians Stronger Together (#MST), a​ ​​Facebook​ community of folk musicians working together to succeed in the music industry.

"The process of writing a song is, for me, akin to writing a letter to a dear friend. Therefore inspiration for a song grows from a focused mind and courageous heart. Both understanding and empowerment of the soul can be the greatest gifts given." - Jesse Lacy
