This is the first release from talented singer/songwriter Jesse Snyder, who brings a world-traveled experience to the style of acoustic/folk music he creates.
Jesse was born in Haiti in 1986 during a political revolution. His parents met there as missionaries and moved to Kunming, China after Jesse’s birth to take on another mission. He was introduced to the piano at age 5, and studied electronic music composition in the Chinese public school system. Jesse found himself in Jerusalem, during the Passover War and Intifada. He eventually completed International High School in Kunming China, then moved to the United States to finish a degree at Grand Canyon University, Phoenix.
While Jesse was completing his Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations, he heard the music of guitarist Tommy Emmanuel, and began playing the guitar in earnest. His admiration and study of Emmanuel’s work led to an internship and subsequent employment on tour with Tommy Emmnuel in 2010. Through Tommy Emmanuel, Jesse was introduced to artist and performer Chase Foster and has worked with him on tour as well.
