Full Biography

Irish born Jesse Mckee grew up in the country side of beautiful County Down. There he worked on his families farm and played music in the evenings until the wee hours of the morning, during a weekend trip away to the lovely coastal town of Brighton, Jesse instantly fell in love with the charismatic charm of the city and took the plunge by moving there permanently.

He now plays music full time where he resides in the heart of Brighton. Now playing over at least 200 gigs per year Jesse has perfected his craft. A well rounded performer, perfect for those upbeat events & parties, Jesse has perfected the art of getting the whole room on their feet and dancing.

Jesse can is also perfect for those more relaxed periods where all the party needs is some chilled out classics or some background instrumental music perfect for setting that ambient vibe.

-Supporting Van Morrison
-BBC Radio Introducing 'Track Of The Day' x 4
-Unsigned Guide 'Track Of The Month' Feb 18
-Music sync with Major Games developer Climax Studio (Assassins Creed, Fable)
