Remember Jesse Powell? Whatever happened to him? Well, he is going to be the inaugural subject of my new feature: M-I-S-S-I-N-G!!!
In the late 90s, after relentless comparisons to a then very popular Baby Face, Powell seemed destined for either fame or failure. His self-titled first release got him a lot of buzz and had some moderate hits but it wasn’t until his sophomore album, 1998’s ‘Bout it and its powerhouse ballad You, where Powell started getting some much-warranted mass appeal.
His last album release was in 2003! There aren’t too many men out there who could claim a four octave range and we want you back, Jesse! I am sending my troops!
