What was your motivation to become a singer?

“First, my grandmother was a recording artist. Her presence on stage is the way my grandparents met, so you could say being a singer is the reason I exist. For as long as I can remember, I have been an artist and singing has been part of my life from an early age. As a kid, they were camp musicals, and in high school I started listening to records and joining bands just to get a chance to perform live. It was always about connecting with people first of all. “

How did you get started in this industry?

When I was in grade 5, my band entered a local talent competition with a song I wrote that we recorded and won! This gave me the idea that I might not be a terrible songwriter, so I stuck to it and years later in high school with really great luck, or whatever I would call destiny, met a writer in my city who had a lot of success in business. He took me under his wing, which led to the music that I wrote on the radio. As soon as I found out it was an actual job, I was addicted and never looked back.

Do you have any side projects?

Besides caring for my dog ​​and learning to play golf, the music business also makes me too busy to have one.

How do you advertise yourself or your business?

I have an amazing manager who has built a support team around me that helps drive today’s digital based business model.

What advice do you have for budding entrepreneurs or the entertainment industry?

Be yourself in everything you do. He is already one of all the others in the world, and God made you what you are for a reason. Be that person and no one else. And work through the competition, because there is always someone who is as motivated or greater than you.

Do you have any future plans for future music or upcoming other festivals?

I write and record all the time. I have more new music ready for release than ever before. After playing Stagecoach this weekend, the band and I are excited to be back on tour and taking this new music through the United States.

We wish Jesse Labelle much success in his future endeavors, and we can’t wait to see what awaits him in the coming year and the festivals ahead.
