Jesse Brewster – March of Tracks

Jesse Brewster – March of Tracks
When you hear the lead track off this third CD from northern California singer/songwriter Jesse Brewster, you wonder if he is just trying to be another country star. I am not going to hold him hostage to my cynical view of corporate Nashville, as “Make Or Break” is a very strong song with great hooks that can match up with anything on commercial radio these days. I am glad I delved deeper in because he is about so much more than that. “Circles” has a more Americana feel and displays Jesse’s vocal range which spans several octaves. “World Closing In” weaves traditional folk stylings with subtle Cajun and Brit pop stylings. I know that sounds like a strange marriage, but it is a happy one, and it shows that Jesse has the songwriting talent and a no-fear attitude to be able to create unique songs as well. Lyrically, Jesse hits subjects that range from soul bearing to good old-fashioned story telling, and his vocal work is also innovative without losing any emotion in the process of doing things a bit differently. So hey: if a more commercial track like “Make Or Break” entices more people to check him out, so be it. He has the talent and passion to deserve a wider spread recognition.
