“Like My Mother Does” is the debut single for new artist Jesse Lee, and her upcoming album will be released by Atlantic Records. The song is a tribute to a mother-daughter relationship that represents Jesse’s own relationship with her mom. “My mom’s my best friend, so when I’m singing that song, I’m coming from a very real place,” says Jesse. “When I played it the first time for her, she cried.”
The yet-to-be-titled album is a mix of traditional and contemporary country, aided by Grammy Award winning producers Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts), Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), and Paul Worley (Dixie Chicks, Martina McBride). Jesse’s songwriting collaborators include American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, as well as Hillary Lindsey (Carrie Underwood) and Liz Rose (Taylor Swift), who co-wrote “Like My Mother Does” with Chapman.
Born in California and raised in Florida, Jesse grew up with a deep appreciation for country music. By her early teenage years, Jesse was opening shows for artists such as Ronnie Milsap, Willie Nelson, Keith Urban, and Clay Walker and spending extended periods of time recording and performing in Music City. After high school, she enrolled in Belmont University’s music business program and was able to perform at famed Nashville venues like the Bluebird Café and the Ryman Auditorium.
