JeConte / Bio

JeConte’s sophomore release ‘Down by The Bayou’ produced by Anders Osborne, showcases the bluesy soulful vocals and harmonica of JeConte backed by a ferocious blues rock band featuring New Orleans legend Anders Osborne, veteran rocker Wally Ingram, Bayou Bassman Carl Dufrene, and San Francisco Slide Virtuoso Chris Haugen & long time JeConte writing partner and Guitar Man Matty Cohen.

Down by the Bayou dips deep into the roots of the Bayou, while simultaneously preserving the NorCal Rock n’ Roll and West African influences of JeConte’s style. Recorded upon his escape from the coup d’etat in Mali at Dockside Studios in Maurice Louisiana in 2012, JeConte went directly from the war torn West African country and the Mali Blues sessions, into the heart of the Bayou to carve out a record that inspires deep soulful southern blues, and begs the listener to ask for more.

Special thanks to Anders Osborne for keeping it real and bringing the light and to Dockside Studios for opening their home and studio to us, we are forever grateful. This album is dedicated to love, for without it, we have nothing… For Heather… Forever indeed…
