Hailing from the mountains of western North Carolina, guitarist and songwriter Jesse Frizsell seamlessly combines aspects of modern and classic country with the smooth harmonies and feel heard in today’s biggest chart toppers, with driving rhythms and shimmering guitars. Frizsell has been a musician and songwriter for the majority of his life, in his own solo endeavors and as a leading member of local North Carolina bands.
Born in Asheville, NC, Jesse grew up learning and playing his favorite tunes by classic artists, from AC/DC to George Strait. By the age of 16, he was playing in various local bands, contributing as a guitarist, singer, songwriter and arrangement. As a member of those bands, Frizsell has performed at the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam and been an opening act for Bret Michaels (of Poison), Blackberry Smoke and Framing Hanley
More, recently, Jesse writes songs for the heartbroken, the working man and those ready and willing to unwind after a long day. Songs like “Beer In The Shower” strike a chord amongst a wide audience, a combination of good hearted humor and desperation, a song to laugh to keep from crying. He participates actively in the local Asheville music scene and regionally in the Southeast, notably as a member of The Western Carolina Writers, preforming events at Catawba Brewing and Twin Leaf Brewing, both located in downtown Asheville.
Jesse has released a two song EP, “A Couple of Songs for Drinking”,in 2018. Available for streaming or download on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.
