Jesse Mac Cormack is unveiling today a brand new track called “Never Enough” from his upcoming EP to be released September 16th via Secret City Records. Drawing from his personal life to inform musical compositions, this track stems from an eruptive argument that took place within Jesse’s band. The track is available now and iTunes and streaming services.
This year has already seen song premieres by CLASH Music (UK) and The Line of Best Fit (UK), as well as video premieres by Les Inrocks (France) and The Fader (USA). Having generated more than 1.8 million streams, raving reviews from here and abroad, Jesse Mac Cormack could very well become the “new hero of modern folk” (Les Inrocks).
Jesse has spent his downtime producing records for the local Montreal scene including the debut record by Emilie & Ogden. He has already shared the stage with Half Moon Run, Lou Doillon, Sophie Hunger, Cat Power and Shakey Graves. His first EP, Music For The Soul (2014), delivers a personal acoustic sound, while his second EP, CRUSH (2014), encompasses electric guitar and a full band. His heartfelt vocals and lyrics arise from his personal journeys, where his warm influence emerges from his surroundings. Guided by increasingly complex arrangements, rhythmic progressions within both the acoustic and electric realm, Mac Cormack’s impassioned vocals belie their owner’s youth.
