"Emerging folk artist, Jesse Lacy's style of musical story telling is a reflection of legends like Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, with a tinge of Ben Folds." - Grant D. Grant (Appetizer Radio)

"Jesse Lacy has a soothing and rich voice and is directly connected to his creative self." – Kami Mackin (Indiana Daily Student) / Kevin MacDowell (Kid Kazooey)
