ABOUT

I'm relatively new to Maine and am looking for musicians to play original material. Am not adverse to hiring an entire band to back me. I mainly consider myself a singer-songwriter who has a toe in a variety of genres. I grew up and spent many years in Iowa and was a part of the music scene in the midwest from late 80's to 2003. Recorded a couple of records that were on the Alt-Country/Americana/Roots Rock side...although I've moved away from this a bit these days. Both of these can be heard at: s://tomjessen.. Give these a listen and see if it might be something you're interested in delving into.

Influences

The range is eclectic to say the least. From Captain Beefheart to George Jones to Thelonious Monk and everything inbetween. I've been compared to Costello/Graham Parker which I'm fine with. I'm into artists who focus on craft - Ron Sexsmith, Paul Kelly, Forbert, John Prine, I love the Clash, NRBQ, 70's/80's punk rock, Kinks, 60's garage, 80's alternative, power pop, early reggae and ska, country up til about 1977, early blues. and on and on...
