Product Notes

THE STORY Debut solo album, 'First Steps' is how the sincere folk artist, Jesse Lacy, walked into the lives of music lovers everywhere. He combines poetic lyricism and softly assertive vocals with a mellow rock instrumentation to communicate his meditations on youthful hope and coming-of-age nostalgia. Growing up in a small community in the heart of Indiana, Lacy didn't travel far to attain his bachelor's degree in English and minor in music from Indiana University. However, following the release of his debut album, Lacy took his zero carbon footprint album to the East Coast where he performed 16 dates in 13 different cities. 'First Steps,' named after and inspired by Vincent van Gogh's painting of a child taking first steps toward his gardening father, was successfully funded by a crowd funding campaign. In the time since returning from tour, Lacy has begun writing for and performing with Wade Van Orman and Logan Davis (Jesse Lacy Trio). They expect to release an album in 2016. 'Emerging folk artist, Jesse Lacy's style of musical story telling is a reflection of legends like Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, with a tinge of Ben Folds.' - Grant D. Grant (Appetizer Radio) Jesse Lacy is simply one of the nicest, most 'up' people we've featured. This young man always has a great big smile on his face and his music often reflects his optimism and humor as seen through the eyes of a man who is wise beyond his years. - Suzette Weakley (Bloomington Songwriter Showcase) 'Jesse Lacy has a soothing and rich voice and is directly connected to his creative self.' - Kami Mackin (IDS) / Kevin MacDowell 'To start things off, we'll play a song that exemplifies the musical style of Jesse Lacy which features folk roots, acoustic rhythm piano, acoustic sonority, major key tonality, a vocal-centric aesthetic with a mellow rock instrumentation." - Pandora Online Radio "While very proficient at his instrument, he's not weighed down by the technical aspects of it, which I feel makes for more honest and sincere writing. He knows what he wants and conveys it with confidence. He has crafted some particularly catchy songs on this album and I think there is something on it for everyone." - Eric Day (Producer/Sound Engineer) CREDITS: MUSIC & LYRICS BY Jesse Lacy PRODUCED BY Jesse Lacy & Eric Day RECORDED & MIXED BY Eric Day, Sleepwalk Recording, Bloomington, IN (Summer, Fall, Spring 2013) MASTERED BY Collin Jordan, The Boiler Room, Chicago, IL (Spring 2013) PERFORMERS INCLUDE: Jesse Lacy - vocals, acoustic guitar, keyboard (7) Stephen Harms - upright bass (2, 4, 8), electric bass (1), cello (1, 2 4) Rob Funkhouser - drums/percussion (3, 6, 9) Timothy Reed - piano (3, 5, 6, 7, 9) Kevin MacDowell - piano (1, 2, 8) Maya Jacobs - harmonies (5, 7, 9) Jake Bergman - drums (1, 2) Ricky Peden - electric guitar (2), drums (4) Eric Day - keyboard (3) Special Guests Sphie - other voice on 'Better' Jennifer Burch - harmonies on 'A River Carries On' William Borders - slide acoustic guitar on 'A River Carries On' ARTWORK: ALBUM PAINTINGS BY Sue Szamecki (2013) 'FIRST STEPS' DRAWING BY Maya Jacobs (2013) ARTWORK & BOOKLET LAYOUT DESIGN BY Stephanie Poppe ART DIRECTION BY Jesse Lacy © 2013 Jesse Lacy.
