the Golgotha Gypsy Blues Revue
Indie Blues / Dark Americana / Southern Gothic
Guitarist, singer/songwriter Jesse Aaron James draws from his worldly experience as a hired gun; writing, recording and touring with acts ranging from country, to pop, to punk, to goth rock, and everything in between to create a showcase he calls "the Golgotha Gypsy Blues Revue".
Drawing from seemingly several lifetimes of experience, Jesse James channels a very diverse, yet cohesive set of influences into a fresh and modern perspective on what it means to have and play the blues. With clever, catchy, and familiar songwriting, Jesse delivers his story with a soulful voice that can range from angelic to a fierce growl. Coupled with his accomplished and enchanting guitar work, themes of love, life, loss, and longing are presented with an engaging honesty that invites the audience to pull up a seat, grab a few drinks, and enjoy the experience.
The cover songs in a Jesse James set might surprise you, as Jesse will span decades and seemingly unrelated genres - from early Johnny Cash & Willie Nelson, to the Smiths, the Cure, Joy Division, Nick Cave, and modern contemporary artists like the Black Keys and Langhorne Slim - and weave it all into a cohesive set through clever arrangements that make it all sound like it comes from the same book.
Fans of early outlaw country, classic rock, 80s alternative, Americana, modern indie blues & indie folk, and traditional Texas blues will equally enjoy a Jesse James & GGBR performance as he seamlessly weaves these genres into his own original and unique voice.
