INTERVIEW: ‘Rising Star’ Winner Jesse Kinch On The Show, Debut LP

Jesse Kinch won the first and only season of ABC’s singing competition “Rising Star.” The show aired in the summer of 2014 and was hosted by Josh Groban; judges included Ludacris, Kesha and Brad Paisley. Kinch was the clear favorite from the moment of his first performance and took home the top prize, which included a record deal, to no one’s surprise.

However Kinch’s journey to his debut album was far from over; matter-of-fact, it was just beginning. The Long Island native eventually parted ways with Capitol Records over creative differences and landed at Curb, where he released “I’m Not Like Everybody Else” on Friday.

The singer/songwriter stopped by Hackensack Meridian Health Stage 17 to chat with me about his life post-“Rising Star” and the new album, which is available now.
