NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — In support of her latest album, Spitfire, Jessie Galante is heading back over the pond from New York to revisit some of her favorite stages.
Compared to legends such as Janis Jopin, Tina Turner, and Nancy Wilson (of Heart), Jessie tears up a stage and has spent much of the past ten years gathering fans in the Netherlands and Budapest.
Jessie was raised in Buffalo, NY and joined the band Actor in her late teens; they had a hit with the song “Checkin' Out.”
After a short stint in Los Angeles, which included Michael Wagener's production of her band Fire and a recording that found its way to radio stations in England and Italy, Jessie came back to Buffalo.
While back in Buffalo, Jessie hooked up with producer/engineer Larry Swist, who has worked with artists from Ike and Tina Turner to Sly and the Family Stone, Spryo Gyra and Foreigner's Lou Gramm.
Jessie's next move was to conquer Europe when she moved to the Netherlands, and played festivals and clubs and opening for National bands like Golden Earring.
During this time she built a sold fan base and earned media attention, throughout the Netherlands and Hungary according to Leighton Media.
Jessie recorded Spitfire with American musicians, who previously played with artists ranging from Lenny Kravitz to Anastacia, Everlast to Joss Stone and Billy Joel, and the European artists who comprise her band during her annual trips there.
