Jesse Samsel Duo

The Gentleman of The Blues” Muddy Award Winner Jesse Samsel is a Northwest Musical Treasure... Jesse started his recording and performing career here in PDX with “White Lightning” in 1975. The AM Radio hit Tomcat put the band into headlining clubs with unknown acts like Heart opening their shows... His first major break came when Meredith Brooks replaced her original guitarist in The Angels of Mercy. The album Animal Attraction entered the local charts at #1. A west coast tour and headline shows at The Whiskey, FM Station and Madame Wongs put the group on the radar with A @ M and Capital Records... In 1989 he was asked to join the soul duo of Bobby King and Terry Evans to emulate the progressive guitar work of Buzz Feiten. When Terry signed a solo deal with the audio file label “Audio Quest” he asked Jesse to continue working with him. Over the last 25 years he has recorded 6 albums with Terry, Ry Cooder, Jim Keltner, Gorge Caldron and many others. In album reviews he would be compared to Scottie Moore and later Ry Cooder himself. Although they don’t perform 250 plus dates a year anymore Terry and Jesse still perform a few shows during the summer months... Jesse has released 4 CD’s bearing his name locally and internationally. His Anthology Album with 20 years of original music is in the works for release in Winter 2015. He plays northwest shows with his band and does solo work as well... Jesse joined the Northwest Primer Fleetwood Mac tribute “Gold Dust” in Jan of 2015. Taking on the guitar and vocal stylings of Lindsey Buckingham, Peter Green and Bob Welch and a long line up of supporting guitarist this is a perfect setting to use his whole bag of tricks! Lead by Windy Wahlke as Stevie Nicks the band performs all the hits from FM’s huge catalog of music. Complete with signature Vocals, Musical Arrangements, Costumes and the FM vibe, this is a must see show! For a complete history on Jesse visit www.jessesamsel.com
