Jesse Waldman

Thornhill, Ontario born Jesse Waldman has certainly been around the block, having started out in the bars of downtown Toronto before a cross-country journey led him to find a new home in the arms of Vancouver’s commercial drive music scene. Now his home of over twenty years, the West Coast continues to serve as an inspiration for Jesse’s lush imagery, sublime melodies and outstanding technique. Influenced by the folk and blues pioneers of old, Jesse’s musical tours through local pubs to soft-seat theaters has seen him perform at the likes of Vancouver’s Folk and International Jazz Fests, Burnaby Blues and here at home in the Mission Folk Music Festival itself. Driven by the rock ‘n roll dreams sprawling from the music of his past, Jesse Waldman’s continental music experience is sure to leave audiences hooked.
