Composer, producer, director Jesse Cutler, no stranger to the world of entertainment, is a renaissance man born on August 28th in New York City. Considered a musical child prodigy, Jesse turned professional at the tender age of 13. As the leader of his own band, called "The Young Executives" signed to Mercury Records, Jesse performed for show biz giants like the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Sammy Davis Jr., Barbra Streisand, Joan Collins, Anthony Newley and even Andy Warhol. As the darlings of the New York jet-set, Jesse's band traveled the high society circuit in the 1960's from J.P. Morgan's Greenwich, Connecticut mansion to Betty Milliken's (Milliken Textiles) private parties on her Long Island Watermill Estate.
By age 20, Jesse was invited by famed Academy Award winner and composer, Stephen Schwartz (Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame) to join the original cast of the Grammy Award winning play "GODSPELL" as guitarist and co-arranger along with Paul Shaffer (The David Letterman Show). After the show gained enormous international acclaim, Jesse Cutler was signed to Brut Records, a division of Faberge Cosmetics as their premier recording artist followed by singer Michael Franks and comedian Robert Klein.
By the mid-70's, Jesse moved onto Los Angeles at the urging of Quincy Jones' daughter, Jolie and eventually signed with United Artist Records. The United Artist L.P., simply called "JESSE CUTLER" was produced by Academy Award winner, Joe Renzetti (Best Soundtrack - The Buddy Holly Story) to critical acclaim. The album featured top L.A. session men like Lee Ritenour, Jay Grayden, Ed Greene, Kai Winding, and Michael Jackson's horn section "Supreme" from the successful "Thriller" album.
By the late 70's, Jesse Cutler was bitten by the "Producer" bug. He then created, produced and launched the first national music aerobics program, entitled "DISCO DIET", Pre-Richard Simmons and Jane Fonda. Nationally advertised in People Magazine, T.V. Guide, Diet and Exercise, and Slimmer Magazine, "Disco Diet" set off an exercise and aerobics craze throughout the 80's, 90's and still going strong in the new millenium.
Since then, Jesse has launched magazines, a T.V. show and now has come 360 degrees back to his original passion... Music! Today, Jesse has created what he calls his "Tour de force"... Jesse Cutler's "MUSIC OF THE STARS" The Astral Connection. Jesse's original music, virtuoso guitar playing and unique piano arrangements are featured in "Music of the Stars", a collection of 12 CD's interpreting the 12 Sun-Signs of the Zodiac. Each CD in the collection contains an informative astrological personality guide to compliment the original music soundtrack while listening.
Jesse Cutler has truly arrived, blending his lifelong affair with music and the power of Astrology.
