ASCAP Audio Portrait: Jesse Winchester

Jesse Winchester's first studio album in a decade, "Love Filling Station," is a remarkable recording by a master songwriter. The CD's laid-back pace belies songs whose emotions and feelings are rendered with unusual clarity and grace. Winchester has an unmistakable spirit of generosity, even as he ponders the promise and realities of love, hope, loss and surrender. He has also included three wonderful covers, including his "favorite song ever."
