I DON'T NORMALLY DO THIS - but meet Jesse Marchant


HI all: As you know, I am an admitted BOOKaholic!!! But, I have to take some precious book blog space here to introduce you to a new artist! His name is Jesse Marchant and he composes, sings and basically is an all around "music god" - which doubly impresses me as I can't even put together a 4 sentence poem.

Jesse is actually the nephew of my Pilates teacher, Heidi (who, by the way, tortures me 3 times a week with a very tough workout) and she has been mentioning him for some months now - we actually do some of our Pilates exercises to two of his songs. Finally, the CD is released (even though we have been hearing his songs for months). The launch of his CD is on Tuesday, January 13, 2009 in Montreal.

I have two absolute favorite songs. One is Fistful of Spears which is NOT on this cd :( but the second song is Red October. It is a haunting, beautiful song - and I have fallen in love with it.
So, if you would like to hear the songs, free of charge (and you don't even have to download them) check out Jesse's website at:

www.jbm-music.com or http://www.myspace.com/jessemarchant.
Better still, buy his CD!
You can even check out some pictures of him!
I think I have a bit of a crush on Jesse! and I am old enough to be his mom (well, not exactly - but close enough - how depressing is THAT?). When did I get too old to crush on a 28 year old? Yuck!

I guess for now, I will have to be happy with being his Pilates Groupie.

Check it out and let me know what you think. I will pass along your comments to his aunt (sorry - auntie Heidi).

He is a cutie isn't he. Don't blame you Tina. I will be looking for his CD. I just listened to the songs on his myspace page and they are awesome. Gotta support the local talent. Thanks for sharing this and doing that for him.
