Savor an evening of acoustic soul with Genna & Jesse. Comprised of Genna Giacobassi & Jesse Dyen, the fiercely independent and DIY duo craft warm, seductive, and cheerful tunes that will inspire a variety of musical palettes.
With an old soul steeped in jazz and folk, Giacobassi’s velvety vocals coast across piano keys on ballads like “Don’t Be Surprised.” Dyen boasts a storyteller’s intonation; when the two join in harmony, it’s like earth meeting fire.
As a teenager in Michigan, Giacobassi studied voice at the esteemed Interlochen Arts Academy High School. Later, she relocated to the Bay Area to build up her songwriting repertoire.
Listen for pop, country, and blues influences woven throughout their catalog. Driven by a joyful spirit and love of performance, the newlyweds have taken to the “permatour” lifestyle (just like Lobo Marino and Jucifer, also featured in this week’s issue). That free spirit, paired with beautiful tunes, makes for a perfect date night—select a bottle of wine for you and your love and enjoy a nice weeknight out on the town in cozy Foxy Loxy.
