Jesse Boykins III

Published December 9, 2014

Every Tuesday, Interview’s Talent Show showcases new faces performing new talents.

Earlier this year, Jesse Boykins III released Love Apparatus, his second solo album. Although over five years had passed since his 2008 debut, The Beauty Created, Boykins had hardly been slacking: in the intervening years, the Chicago-born, Jamaica and Miami-raised, and Brooklyn-based soul musician released both an EP and a collaboration with DJ, producer, and photographer Melo-X, Zulu Guru. He also did a bit of modeling for the good folks at Bergdorf Goodman. Here, Boykins shows off his Patois accent for our Talent Show.
