I’m back with my new column 15 seconds of fame, the traditional 15 minutes having been reduced by some Instagram magic! Every month, I’ll feature one talented anonymous bird from this social media, allowing you to discover that person thanks to a little quiz and my favorite video (and as I’ve always had issues sorting things out, I’ll even add two extra links). But please note that even if I’m offering 15 seconds of fame to these music-loving users, it’s actually YEARS of success that I wish and presage with this column! Without further ado, I’ll invite you to get to know Jesse Gold, whom the one and only Craig David pushed into my feed. The British singer says he’s ‘the truth’ and I agree: I just love how effortless he sounds!
And if you think you have what it takes to give me goosebumps too, send me your link to email@example.com or @urbansoulmag on Twitter (and by the way, let’s follow each other on Instagram as well, shall we?)
Artist name: Jesse Gold
City: Toronto, Canada
I’m a: singer-songwriter-guitarist.
Instruments: Guitar is my main instrument. But I have also studied piano, percussion and cello.
I fell in love with music… : My parents tell me that when I was 3 I asked them for a guitar after hearing Aerosmith on the radio. I haven’t put it down since.
I sing because… : I have to. If i didn’t sing for a while i think i would explode.
My musical pet peeve: When people play a C chord on the guitar but strum the E string along with it.
The song that represents me the best: John Mayer Heart of Life.
3 words to describe my own music: Soulful, organic, melodic.
Dream collaboration: John Mayer.
Upcoming projects: Getting in the studio this summer to produce another collection of songs. A much more professional, cohesive sounding record from my previous projects. Very excited.
