Jesse DeNatale

“A dynamic tune-fountain…and one of the most distinctive singers and creative lyricists of his generation and the generations that flank him.”  - Billy Collins (US Poet Laureate 2001-2003)

Jesse DeNatale is a singer-songwriter in Northern California. He was born in San Francisco. DeNatale (rhymes with “seen a trolley?”) has been writing songs for as long as he can remember. He has released two critically acclaimed records: Shangri-La West (2000) and Soul Parade (2006). He will be releasing his next record The Wilderness this year, on Blue Arrow Records. His music has been described as evocative, and hopeful, a combination of poetry and storytelling. He is looking forward to recording a backlog of material in 2020.
