Jesse Valach and Blues Mountain
After 4 years sitting just below the radar Melbourne's fiery blues/soul infused, reggae/roots inspired, singer/songwriter, and lead guitarist Jesse Valach is now starting to attract the attention he deserves.
Weaving together intense guitar and soulful vocals, Mr Valach takes you on a journey from lights down low soul ballads to energetic shuffle romps delivered in demanding fashion.
Mr Valach has performed alongside some of Australia's biggest names in blues music including Russell Morris, Geoff Achison, Jeff Lang, Lloyd Spiegel, Jimi Hocking, Ray Beadle and on numerous occasions he has been the dynamic guitarist behind renowned harmonica player Mr Chris Wilson.
Mr Valach first made a name for himself honing his craft at local blues jams and after being selected to perform on the "Unearthed Stage" at The Wangaratta Jazz and Blues Festival and Winter Blues Festival in Echuca by the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society alongside his outfit Blues Mountain their sound caught the rapt attention of everyone from the loyal traditional blues followers to the casual-part time listener.
