Jesse Kincaid Band

Jesse Lee Kincaid began playing music at age 11 when his uncle, 12 string guitar player and folk legend Fred Gerlach, gave him his first guitar. At age 19 Kincaid drove his 1953 Pontiac on Route 66 from Hollywood to New York City to be a folksinger, going on to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he formed a folk music duo with Taj Mahal.
Jesse Lee Kincaid’s solo album “Brief Moments Full Measure”, released in 2014, contains a baker’s dozen songs written by Kincaid that range from the folky, funky “Little Rain” to “Black Crow,” a country blues  to a touchingly sentimental “My Family.”  Don Henley, of The Eagles, has recorded Kincaid’s song, “She Sang Hymns Out Of Tune” for his album release, “Cass County.”In 2014, Kincaid’s memoir “Ibiza Chronicles” was published, documenting his times in the 1970s in Europe’s hip capitol on the Spanish Mediterranean island of Ibiza, performing in a rock and roll band and traveling to the ancient East on the road to India.
