Musical Spotlight: Jesse Boykins III – Plain

In a new addition to the site, we’re going to be highlighting the vast array of music and artists that come out of Chicago. Always known for being one of America’s main breeding grounds of new talent and musical genres, Chicago continues to deliver the goods, from Hip Hop to Rock to Jazz to Soul, the city’s music scene is constantly evolving.

Our first highlighted artist, Jesse Boykins III originally hales from Chicago but now resides in Brooklyn. Released in February, I only just heard his song Plain yesterday on local radio station Triple J and was instantly drawn to it’s mellow vibe. I’m not sure if this is due to Australia being slow on the uptake when it comes to musical releases or if the track is only now gaining momentum.

I’m yet to investigate his back catalogue but I definitely think we’ll be hearing more from him after the release of this track.

For all the latest goings on in his life, you can follow Jesse on twitter at @JesseBoykins3rd and go check out his latest album Love Apparatus on itunes HERE.
