The 2014 winner of ABC’s talent competition “Rising Star,” New York native Jesse Kinch is paving the way to carve his niche in the music scene. Heavily influenced by the “Seattle Scene” (such as Pearl Jam and Nirvana) and the legends before him, Jesse channels Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Bruce Springsteen with the aim to revive the rock n’ roll glory days while intertwining his own unique, original sound. The combination of his raw talent, passion, spirit and energy–all evident in both his music and live performances–has garnered attention from fans all over the world.
“Jesse brings a new element of diversity to the Buddy Lee Attractions roster as we explore new genres of entertainment,” said Mike Meade who is the representing agent. “His performance and stage presence emulates his ability to renew the classic rock scene; we are confident he will have a stellar year in 2015.”
“I am proud and honored to join the Buddy Lee Attractions family,” stated
20-year-old Kinch. “The staff at BLA fully understands me as an artist and they respect my vision. The agency’s reputation is stellar throughout the industry and I have no hesitation we will make a great team and do great things together.”
Prior to capturing the hearts of music enthusiasts across the country (via his appearance as “the contender-to-beat” on the national television show “Rising Star”), Kinch’s name appeared on billings in New York and Long Island early on. He made his debut at a New York rock club at the young age of seven; as an eight-year-old, he was featured on Long Island’s News Channel, and he finished third in the Sam Ash Guitar Competition when he was just 10. Jesse and his band have opened for the legendary group Living Colour and headlined the “Rock for Haiti” benefit concert. He has also performed at events in support of various charity organizations including Cystic Fibrosis, American Cancer Society, and Long Island Care. He has made appearances on Channel 55 News’ “Good Day NY” and Jesse Kinch originals have enjoyed airplay radio stations Q104.3 NY, WBAB 102.3 Long Island and WMJC NY.
Jesse’s extraordinary, undeniable talent caught the attention of well-known photographer Robert Knight; Jesse became a member of Knight’s “Brotherhood Of The Guitar;” he has also been featured in publications and media outlets such as ZRockr Magazine Las Vegas, Fresh Independence and Unsignedcorner.com, while St. Paul’s Lifestyle (England) dubbed him as an “Artist To Watch.”
Jesse Kinch is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (wedding, birthday, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
