Jesse W. Johnson – Primal Scream – Single Review

Jesse W. Johnson is a singer/songwriter from Springfield, IL. He’s been taking his hooky-yet-dark rock and roll around the country alone and with Chicago band Jet W. Lee for 6 years now. His publicist says that he plays and tours out the majority of the year on his own. Now that is an accomplishment. I […]
