       First time I started playing guitar for real was 1974. Motorcycle crash — couldn’t move anything but my arms. I sat there in bed and I learned how to play Paul Simon’s “The Boxer.” I could really see myself in that song. I’d just gotten back from the service a few years before, and I was pretty embittered for a long time... Read More

The nicest guy in n.o.

I have known Mr. Sewell for quite a while and have to say he is a great person and an asset to the community. He is there because he loves to be, because his job qualifications could put him in as an engineer pretty much anywhere. If you ever catch him down there tell him I said hi. His assistance to the area during the chaos immediately following Katrina is truly amazing. He is very humble, but he really deserved to win some sort of recognition in the face of everything that happened. Keep in touch bud. A bientôt.

I was recently staying in The French Quarter for nine days and therefore had the privilege and honor of meeting Jesse Sewell. I'd stop by and listen to him every chance I got. What an inspiration! Jesse is such a tender soul and if you are fortunate enough to be able to spend some "quality time" with him you'll get to hear him play and sing out from his heart & soul. It's quite an experience to feel the music/words echo back off the Quarters walls into your own being. It's a connection, I'll never forget. Thanks Jesse!
PS: I'm grateful also to you Jesse, for imparting your knowledge and experience to my guy Steve. He's been inspired and encouraged by you and I wouldn't be surprised if he'll be out on our village streets strumming away himself real soon!

I've been to New Orleans several times. I wandered upon Jesse Sewell while exploring the French Quarter. His voice is amazing. This man sings from his soul. Watching him play and sing with his eyes closed is a moving experience. I took the time to talk with him the last time I was there and he is a soft spoken, gentle man who I admire. Every time I visit New Orleans I will find Mr. Sewell. I am a fan for life.
