Watch the live video of Addict premiering on Jesse’s Facebook page. On tour across Europe this fall.
Today, Jesse Mac Cormack’s “After The Glow” EP is finally available everywhere in digital, CD and 12” format. Already getting rave reviews, Indie London believes “ [Never Enough] could yet become an anthem for him” while The Revue calls Jesse a “master chef” and his latest EP simply “brilliant”. To highlight release day, Jesse is premiering a live video for the song “Addict” on his Facebook page. The video was shot last July by Frédérique Bérubé in Jesse’s hometown at the Montreal International Jazz Festival during his set opening up for Cat Power at the Métropolis.
Never Enough (extrait)
Following a series of EP launch concerts in his native province of Quebec, notably at the POP Montreal Festival, Jesse Mac Cormack will fly to Europe for a string of shows and will be performing for Secret City Records’ 10th anniversary night in Paris as part of the MaMA Festival on October 12th at Les Trois Baudets.
This year has already seen music premieres by CLASH Music (UK), The Line of Best Fit (UK), VOIR (CA) and Exclaim! (CA) as well as video premieres by Gold Flake Paint (UK), Les Inrocks (France) and The Fader (USA). Having generated more than 2 million streams, rave reviews from here and abroad, Jesse Mac Cormack could very well become the “new hero of modern folk” (Les Inrocks).
Jesse has spent his downtime producing records for the local Montreal scene including the debut record by Emilie & Ogden. He has already shared the stage with Half Moon Run, Lou Doillon, Sophie Hunger, Cat Power and Shakey Graves. His first EP, Music For The Soul (2014), delivers a personal acoustic sound, while his second EP, CRUSH (2014), encompasses electric guitar and a full band. His heartfelt vocals and lyrics arise from his personal journeys, where his warm influence emerges from his surroundings. Guided by increasingly complex arrangements, rhythmic progressions within both the acoustic and electric realm, Mac Cormack's impassioned vocals belie their owner's youth.
