Victoria BC’s Jesse Roper is magnetic. With an explosive live show, the quality and charisma of his versatile blues sound rooted in soul, rock and country is as approachable as his charm. The nostalgic may appreciate his throw back vibe akin to Stevie Ray Vaughan and vintage Texas blue. Jesse Roper’s music remains current while his youthful energy captivates audiences while his knock out live performance blows them away. Incapable of holding back, Jesse always delivers the show of his life.
The singer-songwriter’s innate and impressive musical talent has served him well in recent years. It has given the flexibility to play with soul icon Booker T. Jones, rock veteran Colin James, and blues belter Beth Hart, then turn around and headline nightclubs and festivals to younger audiences, and look perfectly comfortable in each scenario. Adventuresome doesn’t properly describe Roper as an artist, because when the guitar-wielding dynamo sets out to accomplish something, there’s no telling where his mind will wander, or when his energy will wane.
