Jesse Bryson has been playing music since the age of 16 years old. It all started with the band "Qwasi Qwa" formed when all members were high school classmates. After kicking around locally for a few years, the band made One CD and earned critical praise regionally and nationally, resulting in showcases at the renowned SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX, and for numerous labels in New York City. A collaboration with his father (Wally Bryson of The Raspberries) followed. They called themselves "The Bryson Group" and recorded the CD "Dry" wich also recieved much praise from fans and critics alike. They celebrated the release with an exclusive party at The Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland. OH, that remains to be the lone live appearance by the band. While recording "Dry" Jesse joined Cleveland rock band "Rosavelt" as lead guitar player, for the CD "The Story of Gasoline" produced by Don Dixon (REM,Smithereens,etc.) for Gaff Music. "Rosavelt" hit the road for a year and a half to support the album taking them across the U.S. and parts of Europe. While on the road the band often would also double as the backup band to friend and New West recording artist Tim Easton. Jesse Bryson is currently writing and recording songs for his solo album, having recently recorded songs in Boston, LA and Cleveland. So continue to check this site for new songs and details.
