Renown for eclectic, beautiful, and distinctive music, Aural Elixir displays a wide spectrum of influences traversing the boundaries of rock, jazz, pop, folk, and world music. True artist and visionary Jesse Maclaine founded Aural Elixir in 1996 while living in New Orleans. Although the magical Crescent City remains an undeniable influence on her style, she has been based in Colorado for over a decade. She continues to dedicate her life to composing, performing, recording, and producing music which adventurously defies categories and uniquely shines as a refreshing alternative to the derivative, repetitive, over-produced music that dominates the modern world.

Classical training, jazz studies, pop sensibilities, and decades of experience as a professional entertainer inform Jesse Maclaine's compositions and performances, empowering her to craft each song and show into refined high art. Audiences of all ages, professional peers, and critics alike rave about her creativity, compelling lyrics, nuanced music, and undeniable star quality. She has recently been commissioned to compose/arrange a musical score for a popular local production company. She can also be found performing solo and ensemble as Aural Elixir, producing "Instant Octopus" and "Throw Back the Covers" her next two CDs, blogging, creating content for the You Tube channel and social media, and promoting her current release: Better.
