Aural Elixir Short Info

Singer-pianist-composer, Jesse Maclaine, has created a unique, soulful sound with Aural Elixir. Often compared to Tori Amos & Joni Mitchell, Jesse Maclaine performs both solo & ensemble as Aural Elixir. Displaying a wide spectrum of influences, Aural Elixir is known for being eclectic, distinctive, authentic & engaging. Classically trained & steeped in jazz traditions, Aural Elixir delivers an exciting new sound inspired by New Orleans, music history, & the diversity of modern life.

Born from the myriad of sounds present in the New Orleans music scene, Aural Elixir's jazz-rock-folk-pop fusion has been delighting audiences at concert halls, listening rooms, clubs, bars, cafes & festivals for almost twenty years. Often compared to Tori Amos & Joni Mitchell, Jesse Maclaine performs both solo & ensemble as Aural Elixir. Classical training, jazz sensibilities, rock tendencies and decades of experience as a professional entertainer empower her to craft an Aural Elixir show that is perfect for any entertainment scenario. Aural Elixir delivers versatile, soulful music that is both accessible and defies categorization.

Music from Aural Elixir's latest release was recently featured on WWOZ New Orleans, KGNU Colorado, The Best Radio You've Never Heard Podcast & Women Of Substance Radio! Aural Elixir's performances are frequently hailed by press as one of the top "things to do." (New Orleans Offbeat, NOLA Defender, Longmont Compass & Boulder's Daily Camera)

Offbeat magazine describes Aural Elixir's unique sound as "... Joni Mitchell’s sly and perceptive confessional meets Fiona Apple’s confrontational doomed romantic, with little hints of Tori Amos’ gonzo earth mother and Carole King’s practical warmth."

Aural Elixir is an eclectic musical experience from Jesse Maclaine and the rich sonic tapestry of New Orleans. "Rozz Fop" or rock, jazz, funk, pop is the best description of this fun, eclectic music. The diverse catalog of popular covers and new classic originals make the perfect ambient mix for dancers and music lovers to party, groove or relax and enjoy the music. While Aural Elixir's style is clearly influenced by classical training, broad musical tastes, and jazz sensibilities, Jesse has created a unique sound that is upbeat, intelligent and engaging.

Aural Elixir is popular on radio stations from Florida to Alaska, including New Orleans' 90.7 WWOZ, Fort Collins KRFC, and Denver's 90.5 The Mountain as well as on internet radio like Spotify and Pandora. Past performances include numerous music halls, listening rooms, private parties, bars, coffee shops, restaurants and festivals such as All Folks Fest, Crestone Summer Music Festival, New Orleans' Tipitina's, The Howlin' Wolf, House of Blues, Blue Nile, 711 Bourbon Street, Fort Collins' Lincoln Center, Denver's Herman's Hideaway, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Boulder's historic Chautauqua Dining Hall, Lyons' Planet Bluegrass, Nederland's Pioneer Inn, Oklahoma City's Classic Rock Cafe, Santa Fe's Cowgirl Hall Of Fame and many more. Aural Elixir has performed for such luminaries as Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial, the Ambassador of Turkey and our premier TV performance from Louisiana Jukebox (2000) is preserved in Tulane University's Jazz archives.

Jesse Maclaine's Aural Elixir lends new flavor to indie rock with innovative, eclectic piano-vocal centric mixtures of originals and songs from the 60's to the present including covers by such icons as Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, & Frank Zappa. Jesse Maclaine is currently composing new music, playing limited engagements across North America & Europe, producing the seventh Aural Elixir CD, and connecting with friends and fans in person and online as well as producing an irreverent video series on Aural Elixir's YouTube channel.

Peace, Music & Love!
