Jesse RS
Jesse RS
Jesse RS is an indie rock band with folk and funk influences. The Denver-based band has a unique addictive sound with their direct hooks and energetic style which thrives in a live setting. Jesse RS combines the elements of storytelling songwriting, a tight-knit rhythm section and such auxiliary sounds as saxophone, clarinet, ukulele and Irish whistle to create a musical blend to appeal to a variety of musical tastes.

"What We Want" will be the second full-length album from Jesse RS. The release follows up their 2014 debut album, "Drinkers & Jokers," and features tunes revisited from frontman and songwriter Jesse Soward's decade-old catalog of original music as well as previously road tested brand new music. The band embraces both their abandonment of a categorical music genre as well as their natural mix of several different styles with "What We Want." This is most apparent in their trademark use of a myriad of instruments. Listeners will be treated to bar sing-alongs featuring accordion and lap steel, catchy pop tunes infused with sax and flute, and musical landscapes supported with full string arrangements. Pulling from rock, pop, funk, jazz, latin, folk, and classical music influences, Jesse RS is more than excited to present "What We Want" to the masses.
Alec Ryan
Alec Ryan
Alec Ryan is a seasoned musician with an eclectic musical background. From ages 17-23 while studying music full-time, Alec's experience ranged from jazz arranging and composition, to classical piano performance, to working as a bassist, drummer, and keys player for various pop/rock acts. The deepest connection Alec has found to music is in the power of pop & rock. In high school, he began writing at the keyboard and a love was born. Over time, this love for writing both music and lyrics would give birth to the niche that Alec has found in today's music scene.

Today Alec brings to us a musical experience of storytelling via emotion-filled, fast-paced lyricism, which melds into pop hooks, all over a bed of piano-pop chords. Raised on Billy Joel, molded by Ben Folds, and modeled after Andrew McMahon, Alec is bringing his piano-pop blend of musical integrity to the stage, song after song, for a musical experience you're not likely to forget.
