The Jesse Williams Band

"Jesse Williams is a blues powerhouse. Taking influence from Tedeschi Trucks, Hendrix, and Bonnie Raitt among others, the young American singer, songwriter and guitarist offers up a vivid, soulful take on the blues.

"While playing shows as The Jesse Williams Band, Williams surrenders to the sound and can go from singing a sweet, and spirited verse to playing a blistering blues solo within a moments time.

"Williams’ blues has a certain kind of energy. It’s raw, and filled with emotion – just the way it should be."
