Jesse Lopez singerNASHVILLE, Tenn. (9/21/19) — Super creative singer and songwriter Jesse Lopez plans to perform live 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4 at Main Street Tavern in Hopkinsville.

The country/rock performer said he moved from California to Nashville in the spring. Beforehand, he traveled the country frequently delivering unique talent. Lopez recently released his new album, “From Start to Finish,” saying every song is a new step in a relationship that includes songs, “What Love Is” and “Wild.”

“This year, I’ve been writing a lot and branching out into this area,” Lopez said during an interview with SurfKY News Friday. He plans to play cover songs and original music during his visit to Hopkinsville. “It should be a good time. Main Street Tavern is a popular, local spot for people to gather. My main goal is to hang out and meet new people in addition to expanding the fan base.”

Lopez has released several music videos, featuring his wife, Kailen, as the lead female in the cinematic productions. New on the Nashville scene, he’s already written three songs this week, and also is penning some of those lyrics for rising artists.

He started traveling at a young age after taking a choir class in high school. His was influenced early on by musical groups America, Eric Clapton and Rob Thomas. Lopez plays guitar and piano.

“I wanted to learn how to read music, and the instructor was super enthused about my voice,” the 30-year-old said. “I started writing afterward. My first song was called, ‘Bittersweet’ — about my mom being a hero. She and I had a lot of things to work through as I was getting out of high school … not anything bad, just regular family stuff. I talk to my mom every day … I got lucky. She’s been more than supportive of my music career.”

The singer is rolling out with new videos in six weeks, saying they are all “turning out really cool.”

According to his website, Lopez is a huge supporter of security in schools, launching nonprofit “Saved by Wavs” July 19 to ensure the future and safety of schoolchildren.
