2019 debut album.
The pop and jazz songwriting dynamo Jesse Palter is releasing her full length, solo debut album ‘Paper Trail’. The Detroit born/LA based, prolific singer/songwriter, writer and performer’s new album features ten tracks of aggressive, piano pounding pop/rock in the soulful vein of Carole King, Sarah McLachlan and Sara Bareilles. But Jesse is no musical novice, she has been in the entertainment industry her entire life, she has written an astounding number of songs and began working with GRAMMY - winning production team the Bass Brothers (Eminem) at age 15. She honed her skill and passion for improvisational singing throughout Detroit with music greats such as Christian McBride, Geoffrey Keezer, Sean Jones, Marcus Belgrave and Avishai Cohen, and later headlined top venues across the country.
Jesse’s move from jazz to pop was seamless, with her eclectic musical upbringingand deep respect and admiration for great songs and songwriters. All of the songs on ‘Paper Trail’ were written by Palter, a multi-instrumentalist, and are autobiographical, capturing an intimate snapshot of her life. She focused on strengthening her creative muscles to explore what melodies, lyrics and chord changes worked best, allowing herself to be vulnerable, brave and brutally honest.
Jesse comes from a long line of creative genetics. Her great-grandfather invented iconic award-winning shoes, including the platform, the slingback and the peep-toe. Her great-grandmother was Estée Lauder’s interior decorator. And her grandmother is a notable New York opera prodigy. So it comes as no surprise that when this diminutive dynamo hits the stage, you’re in for a real experience. And like all great art, it’s autobiographical. Like an open book, she’s working out snapshots of her life onstage.
