Jesse Blevins


[photo of Jesse with hat looking at Margaret] Jesse Blevins is the nom-de-Nashville of John Kellermann. He's lived in Oregon long enough to lose his Tennessee accent, mostly, unless he's singing, or talking to one of his brothers, or flirting with a pretty woman. As a single dad, he took his father's advice and kept his day job. Along the way, he's written many songs, some with witty lyrics and catchy tunes, others poignant and haunting, in various styles from "folk jazz" to "urban country". He's played saxaphone in a rock band, old-timey banjo in a string band, and marimba in an African band. Now he mostly plays guitar and performs solo, if at all. See gigs page.
