Performing with an overarching positivity, combining conscious lyrics with remarkable guitar work, Jesse transports listeners to their heart and back again. His engaging performances see him interchanging between instruments, looping sounds and bringing the beats with his feet.
The last decade has seen Jesse perform in Australia, Brazil, Europe and Hawaii. He blends Brazilian music with his own, creating a unique world class sound. Comparisons have been drawn to artists such as Ben Harper, Paolo Nutini and Jeff Buckley. He is due to release his debut Album late 2017. 

LONG BIO

Talented and charismatic, bilingual and multi-instrumentalist, Jesse Witney's music is bursting with passion, originality and conviction. It is infectious seeing him perform, you can't help but be inspired by his persona and smile. His voice is remarkable, sounding something like that of a Gilberto Gil/Paolo Nutini love child.

Originally from the small town of Gympie QLD, Witney has grown up to encompass a world of music beyond his humble beginnings. After a brief encounter with Brazilian guitar during university studies, he decided, on a whim, to travel to Brazil to learn the music and culture of the country. 

The last decade has seen Jesse move from busking on the street, to touring the bars and festivals of Brazil, Europe and Australia. After a successful crowdfuding campaign, 2015 saw Jesse carry out a two month National tour of Australia to promote the release of his latest work 'Be It'. A four track EP produced by Phil Stack (Thirsty Merc). 2016 has seen Jesse establish the 'Jesse Witney Trio' in Berlin, tour around Germany and start working on a new Album for release in 2017.

When playing solo, Jesse loves to connect with audiences in an intimate setting, where he can tell stories and open his heart to people. When with a band, Jesse finds the best musicians around to play with, opening the music up to a dynamic and powerful full band sound.

I have been repeatedly and deeply impressed by Jesse’s musicianship, professionalism and dedication” Paul Bromley, Australian Musician, Producer and Aria Award Winner

A Beautiful Husky Voice” Sarah Howell, JJJ ‘Roots & All’ Presenter

Beyond a shadow of a doubt Jesse turned out to be one of the most talented guitar players that I have taught in the 20 years that I have been at the University” Jim Kelly, Crossfire Member, Australian Guitar Legend and University Professor (Southern Cross University)

"Every now and then you find a singer/songwriter that changes your mood every time you see them… they light up the room, indulge your senses, incite wild smiling and leave you buzzing from their good energy…. Jesse Witney is that character for me" – Pete Longworth, Visual Storyteller
