Jesse Ballard

Always here or there. Jesse Ballard shows up all over the world for shows with the band or as a duo with Joe or solo or sometimes with a big band.

Originally from California the man with the voice is at home in any number of different countries. Berlin was home base for a long time and sometimes still is, so was London, but then there was Spain, Italy, and many other places. The band is like that too. The Sensational Saxophone JoeDimitris Christides (Drums) is the Greek from Athens.

Difficult to classify, the music has many influencespunchy melodic songwriting is joined by a band that is at home in jazz, blues, rock, and folk-Americana. The band has been roadtested for over 20 years and is like an organic soup. It all just works together like a Mercedes Benz.

The recently released is a collection of songs ranging from whimsical love songs to serious observations of the consequences of war to a sea saga, to a written for Theo Krieger's new and already awarded film .
