SOLO

"Whatever you go through, you’re always going to be alone with what you’re living,” Mac Cormack says. This was a hard-won lesson. In the deepest depths of the Pandemic, the musician recalls finally making a decision: to move forward, to change, to really begin to see himself. SOLO is the sound of that transformation, recorded over the course of a year and a half, marked by its hardships but also its relief.

Drum machines stutter under blooms of synths; curses float below swirls of loving sound. Mac Cormack has hidden so much discomfort inside an album that’s warm and glimmering, like a storm cloud before its strike. Even now, long after the season’s passed, there’s lightning in the air.

With his 2019 album Now, Jesse Mac Cormack has been praised by critics all over the world, while the album got awarded the Felix for Best Anglophone Album of the Year at the 2019 Adisq gala.

Multi-talented, Jesse also produced all the volumes of Helena Deland's acclaimed Altogether Unaccompanied, as well as several recordings for Rosie Valland, Philippe Brach, Sara-Danielle, Lonny and many others.

Jesse has forged a solid background that has been influenced by notable encounters with such bands as Patrick Watson, The Barr Brothers, Cat Power, Half Moon Run and collaboration with CRi.

In January of 2022, three years following the release of Now, Jesse Mac Cormack announces their follow up album SOLO, along with its first single "Blue World."

SOLO will be released on April 8, 2022, on Secret City Records.
