Jesse LaMonaca and the Dime Novels

In February 2009, singer/songwriter Jesse LaMonaca was about to play a solo set at a club in downtown San Diego. Before going on, he invited the house band, Maddox Revolution, to join him on stage for a song, and on Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” they did. With Jesse calling out the chord changes for a few of his own songs, the talented group of musicians- Brandon Conway on guitar, his brother James Conway on drums, Matthew Thompson on bass and Ed Kornhauser on piano- played the songs as if they had already rehearsed them a dozen times, and Jesse LaMonaca and the Dime Novels had played its first gig.

In June 2010 JL and The DN release their debut album, “Until The Stars Came Out,” showcasing their unique Americana Soul sound in a powerful collection of songwriting, melody and performance. In February 2012, JL and The DN release their second full-length album, “The Lament Of Tumbleweed Hawk" with a sold-out album-release party at the Casbah, joined by Blackout Party, The Black Sands and The Fire Eaters (who are now The Soul Fires). The album was recorded at Lost Ark Studio in San Diego during the summer and fall of 2011.

"This album conjures elements of so many sections of great American Music, there are homages to blues, ragtime, rock, soul and folk, yet the band finds itself comfortably traversing all these different terrains, creating something all their own." - Al Howard - The Heavy Guilt

"...an enlightened sense of pop songcraft and a voice that the listener just can’t help but believe." - Seth Combs - San Diego CityBeat

“Jesse LaMonaca has a voice that is hard to ignore. It shakes with soul and has a depth that moves the beat.“ - Rick Ostop - SD Rock ‘N’ Roll

"If you looked up Americana in an audio encyclopedia, this is what it would sound like." - Rachel Zenn Sachs - San Diego Magazine

"Jesse LaMonaca and The Dime Novels blend perfect amounts of blues, rock n roll, folk and funky Americana all the while mixing in healthy amounts of heart and soul to create an instant classic." - ThreeBZine.com
