Jesse Marchant is a Swiss-Canadian multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and record producer based in New York City. Marchant, who has released four studio albums to date, is excited to announce a European tour - with UK dates in December, in support of his most recent album Illusion Of Love.
Illusion of Love is the sound of awakening and emergence, from crises both personal and political. It’s a farewell to isolation, ushering in an album full of buoyant, triumphant Indie – folk - rock anthems.
“Marchant and his band tear through with an urgency unhinged, channelling the essence of Neil Young ... relating from the soul of a troubled youth as it comes to learn defiance”. VENTS MAGAZINE
Jesse has completed numerous headline tours of the US and Canada, whilst performing high profile support slots for the likes of Mercury Prize-winning group Alt-J, Other Lives, Nathaniel Ratecliff, Sondre Lerche, Rogue Wave, Cloud Cult, Heartless Bastards, Local Natives, AA Bondy, Damien Jurado, and many more. Marchant's songs have also featured on several Emmy Award-winning shows including Grey's Anatomy, Parenthood, Shameless, The Blacklist, Eyewitness, and Bones.
Jesse also produced several of his own music videos, including two live in studio video albums and a trilogy starring Christopher Abbott and Amanda Seyfried. In 2018 Marchant produced the Official Video for Sister, I, directed by Brady Corbet, winner of 2 Golden Lions at the Venice film festival.
