Sydney singer/songwriter Jesse Younan passed away on 22 July, 2008 after a short battle with leukaemia after just finishing his fourth studio album 'A Good Day for a Migraine'.
The album has received outstanding critical acclaim and an ever increasing number of fans who have been deeply moved by Jesse's unique, beautiful singing and masterful song writing.
The night promises to be a moving and powerful celebration of a exceptionally tale...nted musician who used the magic of words and music to cope with life’s struggles.
Jesse left behind a rich catalogue of beautiful and haunting music available through Vitamin Records and iTunes. His music has featured on ‘Packed to the Rafters’ (Channel 7) and ‘East of Everything’ (ABC).
“There is no softness in a Jesse Younan song but there is much tenderness. By that I mean that he doesn’t avert his eyes, or yours, from harshness lived or observed ... Astonishingly good.” - Bernard Zuel (SMH)
“Sydney singer-guitarist Jesse Younan has a percussive fingerpicking style reminiscent of sharpening knives, and he sure knows how to use them.” - Michael Dwyer (The Age)
“Jesse Younan sets himself apart from the ‘another man, another guitar, another singer/songwriter’ pack in two ways. Firstly Younan’s is one of the more talented acoustic guitarists treading the boards, his fine picking style sitting him somewhere between the folk of Richard Thompson and the the blues of Tim Buckley. And secondly the Tim Buckley compassion doesn’t stop there, for there are moments, flashes, when Younan’s finely timbered mellifluous vocals begin to soar in a way that touches on the Buckleyesque” - Chris Peken (Alternative Media Group)
