About

Hi, my name is Jesse Maclaine. I am a singer, pianist, composer, songwriter, bandleader and producer. My secret pseudonym is Dynamo Hummingbird and I'm so pleased you are here on my Patreon page! 

Originally inspired to create something unusual by the music of Frank Zappa, Thelonious Monk, & Joni Mitchell, I have invested almost 25 years into crafting songs, recording, and performing music. (Yes, clever friends, Dynamo Hummingbird is also a sly nod of appreciation to both Frank & Dweezil Zappa.) I specialize in mostly original, semi-improvised rock, jazz, folk, pop, funk, Americana, avant garde, and classical music. Sometimes I play covers & sometimes I take requests. I do love to hear from you...send me a note!

I believe Patreon is an excellent way to connect with my fans, friends, true music lovers, and supporters of the arts. As you show your appreciation and support for my msuic with occasional or monthly monetary contributions, I hope to enhance your life with musical audio & video offerings!

You will find a range a rewards for different levels of patrons and I am open to your comments and suggestions. I am also interested in lists of your favorite songs, your favorite paintings, your favorite books, your favorite wild animals, your favorite vegan recipes (I'm vegan!), & most importantly pictures of your cats, dogs & other furrkids. Really, anything you would like to share, would be my pleasure to hear from you.

Thanks for visiting & reading all the way to the end of this message!

Peace and Love and Music,

Jesse Maclaine aka Dynamo Hummingbird









New Orleans' Offbeat magazine describes Aural Elixir's unique sound as "... Joni Mitchell’s sly and perceptive confessional meets Fiona Apple’s confrontational doomed romantic, with little hints of Tori Amos’ gonzo earth mother and Carole King’s practical warmth."

This Patreon is a window, a voice, a vote, a role to play, a bit of motivation, shared inspiration, a way to get involved, a helping hand, a friendly ear, other random disassociated parts, figurative only! I keep it going endlessly, well because I'm endlessly creating. I've got a few new projects in the works, the first upcoming baby is INSTANT OCTOPUS! I'm so excited, it's a foray into entirely new territory for me, spontaneous solo piano compositions on Steinway Concert Grand pianos. These pianos are so large! I went in to this studio intending a few things but certainly not spontaneous compositions and solo piano. Some nerve I've got...but select music lovers & I agree, magic happened and this Instant octopus series was born. Details below about pre-ordering. If you're not ready to preorder but still want to help, every $1 is greatly appreciated!

***While Patreon is a monthly platform with exciting new content for patrons, you are welcome to do a one time subscription and simply cancel anytime. Or stay with us for special, only available on Patreon, new Aural Elixir songs, videos, musings, & more!***

Preordering details:
$10 will get you the free download as soon as mastering is complete. $25 buys the physical copy which will be posted directly to you. (Add extra postage if you are overseas.) $40 for a physical copy with hand written personal message or poem. $55 gets the physical CD and at least 15 minutes on an exclusive Google Hangout or Skype session. $70 for all of the above & free downloads of bonus tracks. $100 gets it all, plus cookies. Real, actual cookies hand made by me and send directly to you! :) For the big spenders, sponsor the music with a donation of $500 and you get en Executive Producer credit in the liner notes!
