Jesse Gilmore is an experimental artist and the founder of Les Serpents, Electronic Warfare Squadron, and the independent label — Santa Rosa Records.
He's released two singles, and two full-length albums — Lay Your Head Down (2016) and Dreamland (2018).
In the winter of '14, heartbroken and still recovering from a catastrophic bar brawl that left him with a severely fractured skull, Gilmore holed himself up in an Airstream in the wilderness of the Texas Hill Country. Here, he began recording experimental songs of despair he thought no one would ever hear — except for his loyal dog, The Wolfman.
Then one fateful night after consuming a heroic dose of Psilocybin — something or someone told Gilmore to send his recordings to the Shimmy-Disc guru, Kramer (who produced the likes of Daniel Johnston, Galaxie 500, Low, Urge Overkill, Ween, Butthole Surfers). Kramer not only took on the project, but played a variety of instruments on it as well.
Upon completing Gilmore’s debut album, Kramer had this to say about it: "Completely original. Sounds like a mashup of Smithsonian Folkways, early Eno, and some Alien Brothel Just Before Dawn. As supremely strange and beautiful as anything I’ve ever been involved with."
Today, Gilmore continues his bizarre journey down life's long and lonesome highway — writing songs and producing indie musicians along the way.
