Boston-based Jesse Dee successfully channels Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, and other old-school soul greats, but the spark and fire he and his band bring to the stage and studio are anything but "old". Joe Kendrick looks forward to hosting them in Studio for a second time. “All the best soul music is based on shared experience", says Dee. "Songs have the ability to affect people, shine a light, lift them up, and push them forward. There’s hope in these songs, and people need that now more than ever.” He plays Saturday at the NC Brewers & Music Festival outside Charlotte.
