Kinch‘s sound is an ode to the classic rock giants that came before him, but also artfully combines his diverse inspiration from artists across an array of genres. An early exposure to opera artists Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman gave him a deep appreciation for the “pureness and beauty” of music. At the same time, Kinch was listening to the unique vocal styles of artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder, who further inspired him. Eventually, he picked up an acoustic guitar at age 6 and began performing at age 11, leading him to venues in New York City and the role of the title character in the off-Broadway musical The Story of Eddie Money.
Since winning the first and only season of ABC’s Rising Star singing competition series, at age 20, Jesse has honed his cross-generation brand of songwriting and performing. From soulful covers of classics like “I Put A Spell On You” to the more contemporary “Seven Nation Army,” Kinch was able to introduce old school rock to a young audience during his time on the show. With his full-length album, he continues to infuse modern elements of rock into his songwriting and covers.
I’m Not Like Everybody Else is set to release on June 1, 2018 via Curb Records. For more information, please visit: http://www.jessekinch.com/.
