JBM, Ambitions & War

JBM, Ambitions & War

Canada-born, and formatively raised between Los Angeles and New York, Jesse Marchant (aka JBM) is no stranger to moving around. It's a good thing, because it looks like he'll be able to channel that nomadic spirit, at least for the next few months. Fresh off a tour opening for fellow Brooklynite Sondre Lerche, he'll now open for the Oakland boys of Rogue Wave. Touring in support of his debut album, Not Even in July (out April 13th, via Partisan Records), Marchant was lauded by iTunes as a top singer/songwriter of 2009. 

Only recently immersing himself back into music writing lyrics, singing and recording, JBM has the lush and haunting vocals that are reminiscent of his musical peers - Jim James or Justin Vernon.   His debut album, a collection of ten heartfelt compositions, was made in just two weeks, but it embodies a meticulous and carefully crafted sound that could take a lifetime to achieve. Enjoy "Ambitions & War," and be sure to check out JBM as he brings handcrafted talent to a city near you.
