Detroit-born singer/songwriter, Jesse Palter, is thrilled to bring the soulful and swinging sounds of DETROIT back to her hometown at the Detroit Jazz Festival. After residing in Los Angeles for 12 years, Jesse has recently returned to her roots, and is ready to infuse the festival with her passion for songwriting and her profound connection to the city that shaped her musical journey. Jesse began singing publicly at age five, studying piano at age six, she attended the University of Michigan School Of Music as a Jazz Major, won Outstanding Jazz Vocalist at three consecutive Detroit Music Awards, shared the stage with genre legends and headlined at legendary clubs like NYC’s Blue Note and festivals such as The Red Sea Jazz Festival. Her original music has been featured on a variety of television shows and commercials including The Real World, 90210 and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. On July 19th, 2019 she released her album “Paper Trail” to critical acclaim on Artistry Music, (a division of Mack Avenue Music Group), selected as LA Weekly’s Album Of The Week. Since the Covid pandemic, Jesse has been writing, producing and releasing music independently, including her soulful quarantine-inspired singles, “Better Days” and “2020 Vision”. Her swinging retrospective jazz album, Nothing Standard, was released in March of 2022 and has amassed almost 3 million Spotify streams. For her performance at the Detroit Jazz Festival, Jesse will be accompanied by a stellar lineup of musicians, including Grammy-Award winning Ben Williams on bass, Keith Hall on drums, and Taber Gables on the piano. As the Jesse Palter Quartet takes the stage at the Detroit Jazz Festival, it’s a homecoming filled with excitement, passion, and a deep love for Detroit. Audiences can expect a heartfelt performance that celebrates the essence of jazz while pushing boundaries and exploring new artistic horizons.
