Jesse & Friends

A stripped back, acoustic showcase featuring today's top songwriters, and buzz-worthy artists on the rise. Hosted by platinum selling goof, Jesse Thomas. This LA born showcase has sold out for five years straight! Come see what the fuss is about...

Each artist will play 3 songs, and have a short Q&A with Jesse.


Jesse is a Grammy nominated artist and songwriter originally from Covington, Kentucky who books and hosts the event. She co-wrote Martin Garrix and Troye Sivan's platinum hit, "There For You," as well as songs with Kelly Clarkson, Chris Stapleton, Ben Platt, PTX, Royal & The Serpent, Caillin Russo, Charlotte Lawrence, Ingrid Michaelson, Ingrid Andress, Wrabel and more! She went viral on TikTok once but it had nothing to do with her music talent and didn't help her career at all. Check out her solo project Thomboi for some wavy pop tunes.

Mark Ambor & Rosie

Mark Ambor   Rosie   

The internet is Mark Ambor’s friend. The 23-year-old singer has amassed almost 240k followers on Instagram and TikTok each, as well as millions of streams and over 160k monthly listeners on Spotify. Ambor made his professional debut in 2019 with “Fever.” Since then, he’s released “The Long Way," and most recently, "Company.” The New York Native’s has secured spots on Spotify-curated playlists like New Music Friday, Pop Sauce, and New Pop Picks, as well as Apple Music playlists such as New in Pop and Pop Delights.

He's gearing up to release his highly anticipated debut EP in May.

No filters, no Facetune, no Vsco, no makeup, no bullshit. What you see is what you get with 22-year-old singer-songwriter Rosie. The New York based singer is known for her strong concepts, memorable melodies, and deep introspective and confessional lyrics. Signed to Arista, her debut single “Never the 1” has received over 20 million streams in the last year. As a songwriter ROSIE has written songs with Mxmtoon, Ben Platt, John K, and Noah Kahan. This spring she will embark on a 28 date tour opening for Chelsea Cutler. Her most recent single “Next Life” came out on March 4th.

Brynn Elliott & Noah Kahan


Vermont Native, Noah Kahan released his first song "Young Blood," in 2017, which quickly gained millions of streams and he never looked back. Later that year came "Hurt Somebody", which went on to gain nearly 300 millions streams and lead to his TV debut on The Late Show, with Stephen Colbert, and a Julia Michaels feature!

His 2020 quarantine EP, named Cape Elizabeth was recorded in one week during a trip home and he recently dropped and toured his second full-length album titled I Was/I Am.


At age 14, Brynn Elliott was determined she’d become the first member of her family to apply to college. And not just any college: Harvard. She buried herself in schoolwork and extracurriculars, building up resume for an application, and in the midst of it all Brynn began to teach herself guitar chords using YouTube videos. Brynn’s initial application to Harvard was not accepted, but she refused to give up. She reapplied a year later, this time submitting her music with the application, and was accepted. In the past few years, Brynn has gone from writing songs on the bathroom floor to playing over 200 shows, signing with Atlantic Records and having 2 hit songs on the radio.

Brynn’s music is about embracing who you are and feeling inspired to act. Brynn says. “Philosophy and music are two sides of the same coin for me. Pop music looks for what is universal in the world, providing that place for people to come and relate about the things we all feel, which is what philosophy does as well. My passion for those ideas isn’t going to go away after college – they might just look and sound different.”
