Her theatrical credits include: the World Premiere of DEATH IN THE FAMILY with the Minnesota Opera Company, SELMA with the Penumbra Theatre Company, BLACK BELTS at the Mixed Blood Theatre, STAMPING, SHOUTING & SINGING HOME with the Children's Theatre Company, SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE at Hey City Theater, Black Nativity (Penumbra), HAIRSPRAY (Chanhassen Dinner Theatre). and most recently THE COLOR PURPLE (Park Square Theater).

JESSE LARSON IS A GUITAR PLAYER AND VOCALIST WITH A DYNAMIC, SOULFUL SOUND.

He has shared the stage with many well-known acts like Next, Eric Roberson, Robert Robinson, Darnell Davis. Jesse most recently performed with Maroon 5 front man, Adam Levine as well as Ceelo Green, when he competed in Season 12 of NBC hit television show The Voice. During his twelve week run on the show, Jesse wowed fans and gained the admiration of fellow musicians making it all the way to the finale and ultimately winning the fourth place spot.

Jesse is a self-taught musician with many influences from B.B. King to Stevie Wonder and Donnie Hathaway. Jesse’s father was his biggest influence and introduced him to classic blues at a young age. In February, 2015 he got a call to audition for Prince. After many auditions, he landed the opportunity to play for Judith Hill, whom Prince was producing. After Prince’s sudden death, the tour was cancelled, but the experience helped to ignite Jesse’s passion for spreading the gift of music to people all over the world.
