Music Monday On Empty Streets: Jesse McCartney

Posted 9:12 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: , ,
I have gotten a lot of emails from my friends to feature an artist that has gotten a lot of attention not only because of his good looks but because of his family name. It is because of the name McCartney that people have been watching to see what musical creations this talented youth will be coming up with next.

Here is a little bit of info about Jesse McCartney:
Jesse Abraham Arthur McCartney was born April 9, 1987 to Scot and Ginger McCartney. He was two younger siblings Lea Joyce McCartney and Timothy (Timmy) Glover Mark McCartney. Jesse lives in Ardsley, New York where he attends the public school systems. He graduated from Ardsley High School on June 22, 2005.

Jesse realized his love for singing and acting from doing community plays. He was in Oliver (1994), The King and I (1995 and 1997), A Christmas Carol (1998) and Salute to Broadway (2002). At the same time he was also part of the singing group Sugar Beats. In 1998 Jesse got the part of Adam Chandler Jr. on the show All My Children. He stayed on the show from 1998-2001 when they decided to age Jr. By then he had auditioned for a boy band and he was one of the 5 to get picked out of 500 that showed up and became 1/5 of Dream Street, who was signed to Edel Entertainment. Their first album was released July 10, 2001. The band lasted May 1999 until August 2002. The album went gold, but in 2002 they split due to a lawsuit concerning the producers. Jesse then decided to go solo. Sugar Beats Producers Sherry Kondor and Bonnie Gallanter, along with Andrew Gold and Ginger McCartney then started JumpAhead Productions and signed him. Jesse then made an EP Called JMac which contained the songs "Beautiful Soul," "Don't You," and "Why Don't You Kiss Her." The EP was released July 22, 2003. He toured for a while with his band, consisting of Dillon Konder (lead guitar), Pete Chema (bass guitar), Katie Spencer (keyboards and background vocals), Sharisse Francisco and Karina LaGravinesse (both on background vocals). After touring he then started his full album which was released September 28, 2004. His song, "Beautiful Soul", was an instant hit. The album went Platinum on Febuary 24, 2005. He now has two singles out, "Beautiful Soul", which came out Febuary 14, 2005 and "She's No You" which came out June 7, 2005. He then auditioned for the TV show "Summerland" (2004) and received the part of "Bradin Westerly".

And for those of you that want to listen to a classic of his here he is singing his single - Beautiful Soul:
