Album Notes
Nevember 28th, 2012 Article:
A 19-year-old guitarist, who has been apart of the Grants Pass music scene for a decade is releasing his first CD.
Jesse Kennemer's recording of all original music, "Fire in the Wire," will hit the streets on Saturday, at the guitar prodigy's CD release concert at the Rogue Theatre.
"Im really excited to play a full set of my own music,"says Kennemer. "Its a whole new thing for me."
Kennemer describes his original music as mostly instrumental rock " with a Joe Satriani/Steve Vai kind of vibe."
Some of the songs are more Bluesy, he says, and a few have vocals, including "Stealin' is Easy" which has a Boz Scaggs feel."
The first set will be all original music, "then we'll bust out and play '60s tunes," he says. " It should be a pretty versatile show."
The concert showcases Kennemer on lead guitar, Mawg Toye on rhythm guitar and vocals, Johnny Trujillo on bass and vocals, and Myke Lutz on drums. B Wishes will open the 8 p.m. show and join a couple numbers.
" We'll also have some speial guests,"says
Mykal Lutz, a local drummer who recognized and nurtured Kennemer's talent from the beginning. "And its all being filmed and documented by Dennis Dragon."
The concert ticket price of $10 includes a CD.
That debut Cd, recorded at the Rogue Theatre, was produced by Gary Mallaber, who has produced and played drums on 32 Plat. and Gold winning albums, including work with Vsn Morrison and The Steve Miller Band.
"its a huge blessing that Gary was available and that Greg (Tressel) let us use the theatre," Kennemer says.
The CD also features Truillo on bass and vocals and Lutz on drums, along with guest stars : Sean carney on vocals and guitar, Deanna Bogart on piano and saxophone, Mike Finnigan on B3 organ, and Jen Ambrose on flute.
Kennemer's mother Michelle bought Jesse his first guitar for christmas when he was 8. He learned to play by listening to music and playing along. He studied for a time under local guitarist Randy Mackay, who especially praised the boy for his vibrato, the way his fingers move on the string to make a vibrating sound.
By the time Kennemer was 10, he was playing at several local jam sessions, he played at a benefit at the Rogue Theatre and he performed with Johnny and the Cadillacs at the Back to the '50s concert in the Riverside Park.
He also performed at the Austin Texas Music Hall with Robert Randolph, and the Los Lonely Boys on New Years Eve.
Since he has opened shows at the Rogue Theatre solo, and with various bands - for Los Lonely Boys, Queensryche, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Tommy Emanuel, Eric Johnson and Paul Thorn and he got to sit in with Blues Traveler at the Britt Festival in .
In 2001, he started making annual trips on a rhythm and blues blues cruise, where opportunities arose to perform on stage with Joe Louis Walker, Shamika Copeland, Ruthie Foster. Lil Ed and the Blues Imperials, Phantom Blues Band, trampled Underfoot, Philip Walker, Sean Carney, Buckwheat Zydeco, Tab Benoit.
Locally he performs with his band Kennemer, and with Blind Lion, the Taylor Rose Band, and The Rock Project.
