Jesse's Just Jazz

Peters Trio captivates with ethereal vocals April 14

Released by Ed Stenson, HFS

 

he Harrison Festival Society is proud to present the Jesse Peters Trio on Saturday, April 14 in the Harrison Memorial Hall.  Jesse and his combo performed at last year’s Harrison Festival Beach Stage, winning over the crowd with his amazing musicality and sense of humour. From their opening Jazz numbers to their closing R&B and Hip Hop vibes they had the audience in the palm of their hands.

Jesse Peters has been a force in the Canadian music scene since 1998. While still in high school, he garnered rave reviews as a singer and songwriter from distinguished jazz artists Ingrid Jensen and Diana Krall. By the age of 21, his group, The Peters Drury Trio, had released two critically acclaimed recordings and toured extensively.

Jesse's newest recording, Face Time, is jazz-edged-soul, embracing a vocal driven mix of original and standard tunes filled with energy, innovation, scope, and range. From an ethereal falsetto that captures a fragility and depth of vocal colour to a cheeky commentary on our all-consuming digital world; from the classic swing Jesse was known for with the Peters Drury Trio to energetic romps that pay tribute to Ray Charles and yes, the King of Pop himself, Jesse has crafted a set of tunes that beg to be listened to with only the finest of wine, or indeed an excellent scotch, in hand.   

In concert, Jesse and his trio traverse a musical path of originals written over the past ten years and classics that give wing to his vocal range.  

Tickets are $22.00 and can be purchased by phone at 604-796-3664 or online at www.harrisonfestival.com or in person at the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison, or Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart.
