About

Jesse Roper

Instruments: Guitar, Vocals details
Canadian rocker Jesse Roper is back with the charismatic new single ‘Horizons’.

Working closely with famed Juno nominated producer Gus van Go (The Stills, Whitehorse, Arkells, The Trews, Sam Roberts) on this new collection of songs has pushed Roper into creating some of his best work, “Recording with Gus and Werner F was on a whole new level. They really cared where the songs were headed and that they ended up just right”, Roper confides. “Everything was broken down to the finest details and nothing was allowed to sit at just “ok”. It was all about getting the vibe right.”

And the vibe is certainly right. There’s a depth, a vulnerability, to this new body of work that hasn’t necessarily been at the forefront of Roper’s previous offerings. With a richer infusion of vintage rhythm and blues as background, Roper’s unique, soulful vocals are given space to soar. The result brings to mind sun-baked, dusty roads and hot, sticky nights on crowded dance floors. Like contemporaries Nathaniel Rateliff and Jack White, Roper tells his story with heart.
