The new Jesse Kinch album that’ll drop on June 1 is called I’m Not Like Everybody Else. The relationship song may or may not be autobiographical, but for sure Kinch is not like everybody else. The Long Island-based rocker wowed judges Kesha, Ludacris and Brad Paisley on the 2014 ABC-TV program “Rising Star” and ended up winning the singing competition. Today, AXS.com is pleased to give fans a head start on enjoying I’m Not Like Everybody Else by premiering the album in its entirety with the stream below.
Kinch records for the vaunted Curb Records label and I’m Not Like Everybody Else features self-penned tunes along with covers of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” the Screamin’ Jay Hawkins chestnut “I Put a Spell on You” and the Steve Winwood/Jimmie Miller favorite “I’m a Man.” Kinch’s voice is soulful on the bluesy numbers and when he really rocks out he often channels a Bob Seger vibe.
“The album truly represents me as an artist and embodies the many greats who have paved the way and lent me their inspiration,” said Kinch through his publicist. “Most importantly, this album is true to my vision and all those who have loved, supported, and believed in me through this long journey.”
The release of I’m Not Like Everybody Else will no doubt ensure that Kinch’s journey will continue for quite some time to come.
