Newcastle is not just the home of magnificent beaches, breathtaking scenery and world class wines, it is also the birthplace and stomping ground of Jesse Fildes, a dynamic and talented young musician who is about to make his presence felt in the music industry. A self-taught guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Jesse’s profound passion for music began as a child, spending endless hours listening to and playing along with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and AC/DC, just to name a few.
Jesse has been performing live since the age of 16 in covers bands, duos and tribute shows. He is the founding member of several acts, including covers trio “Rocket“, acoustic duo “The Gracetones” and ’80s hair rock tribute show “All Access 80s“. Jesse also performs as a solo musician and has worked with acts such as “The Australian Creedence and Women of Rock Show” and “Live Baby Live: The INXS Show”.
He treats his audiences to large helpings of everything from funk and blues to pop, rock and heavy metal, all dished up with a precision that only a truly dedicated musician can deliver.
Jesse’s debut EP “From The Top“, released in February 2015, is a delicious mix of everything from hard-hitting metal riffs to funky rock, all fused with soaring leads and harmonies reminiscent of the rock icons from the ’80s. Jesse is currently writing material for his follow up album, scheduled for release in 2017.
