JeConte is a blues rock singer and harmonica player based in Sausalito California. He travels the World performing at clubs and festivals with his bands based in: San Francisco Bay Area, New Orleans, Paris - France, and Bamako - Mali. Coming off his successful 2013 release of Mali Blues (Winning multiple top 10 playlists and honors - see TheMaliBlues.com) and with multiple European & US tours in 2013 & 2014, 2015 will see the release of ‘Down by the Bayou,’ produced by, and featuring, Anders Osborne and released on Red Parlor Records.
'Down by The Bayou' showcases the bluesy soulful vocals and lightening harmonica chops of renowned livewire JeConte, backed by a ferocious blues rock band featuring New Orleans legend Anders Osborne, veteran LA rocker Wally Ingram, Bayou Bassman Carl Dufrene, San Francisco slide virtuoso Chris Haugen & long time JeConte writing partner and lead guitar maestro Bay Area's Matty Cohen.
Down by the Bayou dips deep into the roots of the Bayou, while simultaneously preserving the NorCal Rock n’ Roll and West African influences of JeConte’s style. Recorded upon his escape from the coup d’etat in Mali at Dockside Studios in Maurice Louisiana, JeConte went directly from the war torn West African country and the The MALI BLUES Sessions, into the heart of the Bayou to carve out a record that inspires deep soulful southern blues, and begs the listener to ask for more.
