My name is Jesse Payne. I am a songwriter from Birmingham, AL. I have released one full length (Nesting) and two EP's (Beyond the Leaves, Buffalo) within my career which began in 2007. Early on, I spent a lot of time on the road with my band but have minimized touring, of late, to finish my record, Heirloom. My preferred genre is Post-Folk with a certain emphasis on poetic lyrical content and minimalistic ambience. I enjoy using a myriad of instruments that are cushioned by ambient soundscapes.
