About Jesse

Hello! My name is Jesse Donovan. I am a composer. I am an artist and musician. I perform in sounds and colors. My life is not about me; it is about what I can give to others. Where I am trained and gifted, experienced and impassioned, I long to share, to touch lives.

My father introduced me to the love of all things musical and artistic, getting me involved from the time that I was old enough to press a record button on a tape deck or hold an instrument while he set up the mic's. Both of my parents always encouraged me to pursue my passions for music, art, and media, and I began composing and performing in professional capacities before I furthered my music and arts education in college. In the 10 years since graduating college, I have employed my abilities in every way that I can in order to reach out and share my passion with others, hoping to spark something of life and joy within them. For years, my work was more pronounced in localized groups and venues. I am now working with my lovely wife, Kara, to launch an online platform that will allow us, together, to reach, and hopefully touch with meaning, more lives than we've been able to in public and private venues on the east coast of the US.

I believe that art and music should speak with flexibility and power to people in all walks of life, to their needs, addressing them in a way that words alone never can. That's what we aim for in our work, coming from our hearts with specific meaning to us.

I believe in ardent study and practice in order to create and perform skillfully with passion, originality, and versatility. If my art and music touches one life, that, to me, is success.
