Scott Cook with Jesse Dee and Jacquie B
Thu, Dec 10
The Slice - Lethbridge


Time: 9:30


An amalgamation of many genres, including Jazz, Canadiana, Hip Hop, and Pop; Edmonton, AB based duo Jesse Dee and Jacquie B are creating a sound that is distinctly vintage yet unmistakably contemporary. With tints of Tom Waits, Luke Doucet, and Ani Difranco, their music is laden with sincere story-telling, tender laments, clever hooks, and colorful harmonies.

The Jesse Dee & Jacquie B experience is quickly becoming one of Canada’s hardest working, capital acts. While Dee’s guitar playing leads the audience through an intimate look at his delicate folk tendencies, jazz wit and dirty blues incantations, Jacquie B’s vocals are a blindfold over the eyes of regularity. Her unconventional harmonies seamlessly blend with Dee’s unique vocal style and delivery. She can also be seen brandishing accordions and kazoos to fight off the evil that is mediocrity. This combination on stage is a reminder that there still are unique artists out there cooking up their own special blend of entertainment. The personal stories they share in their songs give you permission to call them a friend by the end of the performance.

Since the release of the debut offering “A Cross Pollination of Service Station Scrawl” in March of 2008, Jesse Dee & Jacquie B have been tirelessly playing and writing. Their live shows are consistent to the fact that they are ever changing. A true testament to creativity. Their latest batch of fresh tunes stretches out their commanding use of multiple styles and grounds them further into their own sound. If the full presence that comes from this duo isn’t enough; add a full drum kit into the mix and you get a funky, pounding, can’t sit down kind of show that will have you massaging your feet the next day as you browse their tour schedule. Never stagnant ,and always pushing themselves into a new direction, they are together making hard inroads which hasn’t been going unnoticed.


Scott Cook or

Self-described "prairie balladeer" and "hi-tech hobo" Scott Cook has spent much of the last ten years traveling the world, playing music, teaching kindergarten to Taiwanese children, and living in his van all across North America. His music draws on roots, blues, folk, country and reggae, and elicits comparisons to Greg Brown, Tom Waits and John Prine. He believes every word he sings.

Scott Cook sings honest, thoughtful acoustic roots music with a barefoot feel--true stories, sung to the accompaniment of guitar, banjo, ukulele and harmonica, or backed by his capable shipmates, The Long Weekends. His self-published 2007 solo debut, Long Way to Wander, made the folk/roots top ten nationwide on campus & community radio, and kept him on the road for the better part of two years, living in his van, playing constantly, picking up stories and passing them on. His newest "love letter to the world" is a fitting follow-up, and his best work to date. Entitled This One's on the House, it's a collection of road stories, existential ramblings, and musings on love, loss, and the courage to love again.

“Basically, this is exactly the kind of act you'd be happy to stumble down the hill or through the birches and hear at a music festival... warm like a campfire, familiar like the lake down the road... deep-thinking, introspective stuff" -Fish Griwkowsky, The Edmonton Sun

"His music has the ability to transport one instantly to a space of campfire-lit, creek-dipping radiance... This album is perennially serendipitous – like one is chancing upon a well-traveled old soul by the fireside, whose stripping-away-the-veneer knowledge of the world is never jaded, but always innocent." -Monica Chattaway, CKUA Radio
