Jesse Thom is a songwriter, producer, author, puppeteer and artist mentor.
Driven by an awareness of his own inevitable death (which was made clear to him by the loss of his 8 year old brother, Alex, to cancer when he was 5), Jesse Thom quickly discovered his path by asking the question, “What do I want to give?” After graduating with an Arts Medal in writing and music, Jesse moved west to pursue a life of playful service.
Since then, Jesse has toured internationally with his many music projects, studied & performed as a professional clown in Spain, UK and Canada, signed to California label GYPSYPOP Records with his dream-pop duo IRTH and his latest solo album, Snowdragons, was ranked in the top 10 albums of the year by Folk Radio UK. His newly launched Spanish/English project Caraluna is already gaining traction on Hype Machine blogs.
Jesse’s music has been featured on Huffington Post, Louder Than War, Indie Shuffle and We All Want Someone To Shout For and his musical picture book/puppetry project, Some Bunny Loves You, has received accolades from Juno Award Winner Norman Foote, renowned children’s songwriter Raffi (“Baby Beluga”) as well as best-selling author and meditation teacher Tara Brach.
Jesse is also the founder/creator of Beat Creatures (furry drums for kids), which have sold in 13 different countries around the world, and he has produced music and music videos for artists in Ireland, Scotland, England, the U.S. and Canada with his multimedia venture, North Window Studios.
A student of Somatic Meditation since 2010 and a Somatic Meditation Instructor since 2016, Jesse approaches creative work as a loving-presence practice – a playful way to inspire deep connection to our bodies, our hearts, to each other and the planet.
