San Francisco Bay Area singer-songwriter Jesse Loren Strickman is known for potent lyrics and powerfully minimal acoustic music. Emotionally charged vocals sail over jaunty chords in songs about love and social change.
Insightful themes recur throughout Strickman’s music. Personal stories of intimacy and heartbreak color a lot of his repertoire. He writes of depression, highlighting darker chapters of his past to offer a bridge to those who are currently struggling. A songwriter since grade school, his music also explores childhood, innocence, morality, romance, poverty, equality, peace, the environment, and the spiritual universe.
2018 marked a new beginning for Strickman as he began performing under his given name as a singer/songwriter. He is currently in the studio for his debut full-length album at Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco, set for release in 2020.
Annually touring the Pacific West Coast as the frontman of Indie Folk bands, Strickman has played everywhere from intimate cafes to outdoor amphitheaters and festivals. He’s opened for national and world acts such as Damien Jurado, Jay Brannan, CAKE, The T Sisters, Aaron Ross (Hella), Night Riots, Lech Wierzynski (California Honeydrops), Sunny and the Black Pack, Jhameel (American Idol), and many more.
