As a consummate musician, Jeremy Nesse embodies a stew of diverse genres that not only gets your heart thumping but gets your feet stomping. While incorporating a variety of basses into his repertoire, he has also adopted the Chapman Stick, a 12-string tapping melodic bass. He has recorded and shared the stage with numerous bands such as LA-based Moving Picture Show, Humble Lion, punk rapper extraordinaire Hyro Da Hyro, and numerous other eclectic acts.
He is currently performing in NYC with Argentinian, electro-Tango infused Amapola Dry, Alt-Goth Tricked Eve and High North, a Manhattan-based psychedelic/space rock project.
Music I dig: Peter Gabriel, St Vincent, Radiohead / Atoms for Peace, 80's King Crimson, Brazilian Girls, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, RHCP, RATM, STP, Daniel Lanois, Michael Brook, Crosses, Puscifer, Tame Impala, Primus, Morphine, Zombi, Depeche Mode to name a few...
'Jeremy Nesse, ever the hunter-gatherer, dominates the bottom end—via pluck and/or slap. On “Saturday Night” his throaty bass grooves will throb in time with your dance-addled blood vessels.' - Daniel Pearl
"Nesse was quite impressive..." - Adrian - Maestro Arts and Reviews

“Catching an MPS show was like being a kid watching a three-ring circus...claps, a cappella whispers, and whistling...when combined with good music and talented musicianship, it can create magic, just as MPS does. Indeed, if there is an equation to formulating a catchy tunes, this act understands the science.”
- Paula Munoz / MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE
“Moving Picture show are classy, sincere, danceable and possess just enough of ze rock to satisfy the masses. If you're lucky, they might even pull out some tricks they learned at band camp...”

"MPS's second album "Studies Have Shown ..." leans on programming and synths for its sheen (it's not pejorative for me to say I hear bits of Tears for Fears or Flock of Seagulls), but they are used with restraint in their hooky, 3 1/2-minute dance-friendly blasts." - Kevin Bronson/BUZZBANDS.LA
"There are times, after one too many cups of coffee or a heated exchange, when your body gets hot, your blood starts buzzing and you feel like if you don't move, like RIGHT NOW, you may explode into million pieces. This is exactly the sort of adrenaline rush that courses through the music of L.A.'s Moving Picture Show. But instead of urging you to jump out of your skin or throw a punch, these guys want you to dance it out. Resistance is futile...Put them on, turn up the volume and let them rock that body." - Kate B/OURSTAGE.COM
"Their live set starts with banging on some metal garbage cans, the band is dressed in all white with paint splattered on them, and during the entire show movies are projected over them onto the screen behind. It's one of the coolest and original sets I've seen...This album is just as good." -THE ALBUM DOCTOR
