Jesse Remnant is an indie-pop-folk artist from Dayton, Ohio. Since the age of fifteen, he's been escaping to the basement to write and record the hauntingly heartfelt songs you hear on his Squid's Eye debut, "The Human Cannonball."
As of late, he’s been cutting his teeth as bassist for the nationally renowned indie-folk-rock outfit, Southeast Engine (fronted by his older brother, Adam Remnant.) During his time away from the road, he’s managed to put to rest a full album worth of material that ranges from scratchy, 4-track recordings to lush, pop orchestration. For such art to grace the consciousness of a 21 year old (or anyone for that matter) is a true phenomenon.
The music itself gives a nod to the unrefined Dayton underground scene and the pop styling of the 1960’s. The songs are catchy, well crafted, and heavy as hell. With 13 songs clocking in at 32 minutes, "The Human Cannonball" kicks your ass, breaks your heart, and leaves you begging for more. Do yourself a favor and listen.
