Rockbrat Introduces You To: Jesse Emmanuel

Jesse Emmanuel has been called a “musical prodigy”, a “small town star destined for big things” and “a singer with a soaring vocal talent that could easily rival the guitar talents of her father Phil Emmanuel, and her Uncle Tommy Emmanuel. She is from Coffs Harbour, NSW, and has been playing gigs up and down the coastline since late 2008. At the ripe age of 21, Jesse Emmanuel has already accomplished what most artists struggle to achieve in an entire career. Her debut single ‘Don’t Touch My Guitar’ was a major Top 5 hit on national country music radio and the accompanying video clip peaked at #35 on the Country Music Channel’s prestigious Top 50 and spent 6 weeks on the charts. Her debut album ‘Everything I Know So Far…” has found critical acclaim and sold massive numbers and she has had the pleasure of opening for some major acts including The McClymonts, Mental As Anything, Toni Childs, Colin Hay, The Whitlams and plenty more. In 2010 Jesse was nominated for Best Country Artist and the prestigious APRA Songwriter of the Year Award at the Musicoz Awards in Sydney, which are often hailed as the ARIA’s of independent music. Jesse took home the coveted APRA award which solidified her status as songwriting royalty in the Australian music industry. Jesse draws on her personal experiences to create music, not “country” or “pop” or “rock” hit songs that she thinks will fit on the radio, which is why it is difficult to place her in one genre. Jesse’s talents are undeniable. Her songs are exquisite. Her voice is as powerful as her stage presence. She has been doing it for years, and now it is all finally being noticed. Cowboy Col had the pleasure of seeing her live a couple of weeks ago opening the show for her father Phil and Uncle Tommy Emmanuel and was very impressed. She could be big people, and is a star on the rise. No doubt. One to watch. Check out her album here
