About Dynamo Hummingbird

This Patreon page 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, or other random disassociated parts, figurative only!

Hi, my name is Jesse Maclaine. I am a singer, pianist, songwriter, composer, bandleader and producer. In homage to Frank and Dweezil Zappa, and because it feels fitting, I have recently adopted the pseudonym Dynamo Hummingbird. Yes, I have written the Dynamo Hummingbird theme song and all, bonus - still no lawsuit from Dweezil! Alas, he has also not yet hired me to be in his band, his loss, ha! I figure one o these days I'm gonna get an email, fingers crossed for good news. :)

Thanks for checking out my Patreon page! I was 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. 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 creative work with occasional or monthly monetary contributions, I hope to enhance your life with audio or video offerings and special bonus content!

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."
