At just 21 years old, shortly after she moved to New Orleans, entrepreneuse and visionary Jesse Maclaine dreamed of an adventurous, refined yet light hearted multi-genre musical group balancing both complex arrangements and improvisation - a vehicle for her to express her panoply of musical interests, artistic fancies, social commentary, and tales of real or imagined experiences - so she founded Aural Elixir. While the Crescent City remains an indelible influence, Aural Elixir has been based in Colorado for over a decade.
In addition to performing over 100 shows a year, Jesse was recently commissioned to compose and arrange a musical theatre score for Scattershot Entertainment, a popular NOCO production company. She is always producing new Aural Elixir music, some surprise original singles as well as a collection of spontaneous piano compositions "Instant Octopus" and a full length CD of songs by other artists, working title "Throw Back the Covers," blogging, creating content for the You Tube channel and social media, and promoting her current release: Better.
