Following the release of his last video for the single “DANK”, Singer/Songwriter and Producer Jesse Eplan is bringing new meaning to “4/20” as he just dropped his latest EP “Purple Wave” which features a collaboration with non other than trap/hip-hop heavyweight Famous Dex!
Having linked up with Famous Dex and collaborated on the hot new trap infused hip-hop banger, Eplan has been grinding it out in the studio since the beginning of the new year. Dex is widely known for his 2017 hit “Pick It Up” which also featured SONY Music’s own A$AP Rocky which hit the Billboard 100 Charts and was certified GOLD in 2017. Chicago’s young turn-up prodigy is known for his flamboyant heavy beats and vibrant party lyrics, bringing to the table a dynamic, vivid flow to music’s popular culture, which surely adds to Eplan’s own fiery vocals in “Flight”
Discovering a knack for music at a very young age, Jesse learned how to play multiple instruments from drums to bass, guitar, keyboards, and polished his vocal talents playing in local bands on his home turf – Long Island, NY. Eplan’s music consists of genres anywhere from Hip-Hop to Pop and R&B, and able to blend them in a unique way and make it his own has come from years of immersing himself in music.
Having first heard Led Zeppelin, ACDC, The Beatles and many of the world’s top music revolutionaries in early adolescence through his teen years – it influenced him immensely as he began performing in bands as a lead singer, drummer and lead guitar player. When he began playing throughout Long Island and Manhattan in various gigs and charity events which raised thousands of dollars helping to fight crohn’s disease, colitis, and breast cancer, he was then able to really cut his teeth as a live musician.
As he began developing perfect pitch from his guitar and piano playing, it helped him immensely with his next stage of music: writing, producing and recording. Purchasing Logic X Pro, he was able to learn the digital audio workstation and music production software with ease, teaching himself every facet of the program and figuring out how to make beats to record his own vocal tracks over. This brought him into a new world of exploring Hip-Hop, R&B and Trap Music which would be where he ultimately found his niche as a successful singer/songwriter and producer.
Since then, he’s made appearances on My Long Island TV’s Rick’s Rising Stars (which airs on Verizon FiOS1), as a guest on Live It Up! with Donna Drake, and performed LIVE on the world famous Jones Beach Bandshell stage for the 2017 “Live at the Shell” Summer Concert Series.
Following his widely praised “Trap Harmony” EP, Jesse Eplan fans once again have reason for excitement as “Purple Wave” is OUT NOW on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify!
