Captured Muse - Jessie Smelter

Captured Muse - Jessie Smelter

Songwriter Jessie Smelter was raised on a small farm in Minnesota.  You could learn about the times in which he has lived - the family life, the hard work, and so much more - simply by listening to his songs.  Jessie's songs are shaped by musical influences ranging from gospel, country, and bluegrass to folk and rock and roll.  Since releasing his debut CD, Convictions, in 1997 and his second CD, Captured Muse, in 1998, he is retracing the steps of his songwriter heros by playing venues large and small.  His listeners appreciate his vocal talent, guitar and harmonica musicianship, and reliance upon substance rather than style.
