"What People Are Saying"

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Jesse Moore has been described as “…the consummate entertainer…a joy…beautiful, unique, soulful voice.”

“Jesse wants you at his party and, before long, you’ll want to be there.”
Offbeat Magazine, New Orleans

“…deep spiritual blues, good times roots, rock, dark funk and Caribbean soul.” LiveNewOrleans.net

“Jesse Moore shows why he is one of the rising stars of the Crescent city music scene with this fine new CD (More Than Life Itself) that is a grand collaboration with some of New Orleans’ best songwriters and musicians.”
Tom Morgan, WWOZ Radio

“An album filled with truly poignant songs of love and hope. Each track rises with gentle grace, caressing the listener like afterglow.”
Chronogram, New York

“Nuanced arrangements, subtle musicianship and emotional honesty….resonates especially well in post-Katrina New Orleans.”
The Times-Picayune

“It’s Gonna Be OK, should be the official post-Katrina anthem.”
Eric Paulsen, WWLTV4 Eyewitness News.

“Jesse Moore stirs up a gumbo of roots rock, rhythm & blues, Mardi Gras second line rhythms and funk…entertaining and even magical.”
Indie Magazine, New Orleans

“Jesse Moore is a consummate performer with a heart of soul, rhythm & blues gumbo stirring things up on every stage I’ve seen him entertain on. His grooves are deep and they only get deeper and funkier as the night goes on.”

Bio

Award winning singer-songwriter Jesse Moore has performed solo, with “The Jesse Moore Band”, and as vocalist with “Friends of Jabu” at Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest and countless clubs all over the greater New Orleans area. He has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand.

With his first CD, “The Hoodoo Man,” as a calling card, Jesse Moore introduced himself to New Orleans long ago and has never looked back. His original songs and unique voice caught the attention of fans city-wide, and Jesse began spreading his brand of roots rock in the music clubs of New Orleans.

Jesse began his professional career in New York City at the tender age of 13. Jesse is also a successful actor with major roles in soaps, primetime network television, feature and independent films and theater productions in the US and Europe. He most recently appeared with Terrance Howard and Bernie Mac in the Lionsgate feature “Pride”, shot on location in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

In November of 2005, Jesse released the first post-Katrina CD “More Than Life Itself,” named one of the “Top Ten Best CDs of the Year” by the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He lives in New Orleans where he is working on his memoir, “The Road Ain’t Easy”, and a new CD by the same name.
