Jesse Sarvinski stopped by the WorldArts Stage for an exclusive Periscope set!
Jesse grew up in a small town in Northern California called Carlotta in the County of Humboldt. He lived on about 5 acres of land where his family grew produce and raised animals on. It was beautiful territory, the tallest trees in the world, the redwoods, were in his back yard, along with a creek that led to a river that led to the ocean not so far away. From a young age he felt a connection with the Earth and learned from his father that you could live off of it. He also belonged to a small Catholic Church called St. Patricks. The church was high up on the hill and it was here that he got his musical upbringing. However, it wasn’t your typical droning church music. It was a folk band led by his Aunt and mentor and it was all about love and doing good for others. This gave Jessie his spiritual roots, taught him to sing and lead a group of people, and influenced his style of writing and the idea that music is most enjoyed when the audience can easily sing along to songs that make them feel good.
Over the years Jesse has dabbled in so many different types of sounds because of his love for music and the different ways of using it. He has worked with producers who have given his sound a polished pop feel, EDM DJ’s who gave his stories a dance club vibe, and even a fiddler and an upright bass for a more western sound from time-to-time.
“I think music is the one thing in the world that can really tear down walls, end the wars and disease and hunger and is one of the great gifts of life. The stories that people have passed down through the years through song is such a huge part of life that I love and the interconnectedness of all, and the forever that we are.” – Jesse
