A native New York City singer/songwriter born out of a hard-core punk and rock & roll background, Jesse Malin has played and toured since the age of 13. He is a streetwise story teller whose characters and slice of life lyrics portray a world of unsung heroes, helpless romantics and rockn roll survivors. (Comparisons are often made to artists such as Neil Young, Lou Reed, Paul Westerberg, Bruce Springsteen, Joe Strummer, Lenny Bruce, and Martin Scorcese). After a five-year break between records, Jesse returned in 2015 with the double whammy of New York Before The
War and Outsiders.
