Off His Latest LP “Purple Wave”, The Video and Single Brings a Unique Mix Hip-Hop/Trap Music From The Singer/Songwriter/Producer With Help From Fellow NY Rapper Kontraversy
Tampa, FL (May, 2018) — Fresh off the release of his latest LP “Purple Wave” NY raised Singer/Songwriter and Producer Jesse Eplan just dropped his latest video for the single “Cannon” featuring none other than fellow Long Islander and rapper Kontraversy!
The song, packed with a unique blend of Eplan’s Trap/Hip-Hop style and singing fans have grown to love following his debut “Trap Harmony” LP (released in 2017) is sure to be a club and radio BANGER with smooth hooks and dynamic lyrical flow from both Eplan and Kontraversy. Larry ‘Kontraversy’ Carpenter furthers the unique sound, having come straight out of his home town, nicknamed ‘Long Money Island’ with a raw blend of new age hip-hop, trap music and R&B. His single “Dance Hall Queen” received much recognition when played on prime time radio by New York’s Power 105.1 and Hot 97.1 just last Spring. His debut album “Thug Love” features artist such as Grafh & LouGotCash, and combines trap music with love songs to carry out the best of both worlds together with ease.
Discovering a knack for music at a very young age, Jesse learned how to play multiple instruments from drums to bass, guitar, keyboards, and polished his vocal talents playing in local bands on his home turf – Long Island, NY. Eplan’s music consists of genres anywhere from Hip-Hop to Pop and R&B, and able to blend them in a unique way and make it his own has come from years of immersing himself in music.
Having first heard Led Zeppelin, ACDC, The Beatles and many of the world’s top music revolutionaries in early adolescence through his teen years – it influenced him immensely as he began performing in bands as a lead singer, drummer and lead guitar player. When he began playing throughout Long Island and Manhattan in various gigs and charity events which raised thousands of dollars helping to fight crohn’s disease, colitis, and breast cancer, he was then able to really cut his teeth as a live musician.
As he began developing perfect pitch from his guitar and piano playing, it helped him immensely with his next stage of music: writing, producing and recording. Purchasing Logic X Pro, he was able to learn the digital audio workstation and music production software with ease, teaching himself every facet of the program and figuring out how to make beats to record his own vocal tracks over. This brought him into a new world of exploring Hip-Hop, R&B and Trap Music which would be where he ultimately found his niche as a successful singer/songwriter and producer.
Since then, he’s made appearances on My Long Island TV’s Rick’s Rising Stars (which airs on Verizon FiOS1), as a guest on Live It Up! with Donna Drake, and performed LIVE on the world famous Jones Beach Bandshell stage for the 2017 “Live at the Shell” Summer Concert Series.
As Eplan continues to dominate the studio writing and producing new music, make sure to check out his latest “Purple Wave” LP along with “Trap Harmony” as he builds further momentum in the trap/hip-hop game in 2018!
