Jesse describing his journey towards music
Solomon says that he grew up playing sports and got into music because a girl he dated had two guitars. In 2013, Jesse started by making a personal goal to pick up his guitar every day for a year. He learned covers and began to perform at open mics, coffee shops, and restaurant gigs. Solomon started hanging with The7thLeOer in 2017. By 2019, they had the outline of an album that dropped in March of 2020. He was determined to keep improving despite lockdown. Therefore, he and his group embarked on a 10-day west coast pop-up tour and filmed California Days which has 2.4M plays on YouTube.
The key to Jesse Schwartz’s success
Jesse believes that his spiritual prac1ce has given him the focus, wisdom, and confidence to move towards his dreams. ‘My involvement in a world peace organiza1on called Soka Gakkai Interna1onal trained me to set clear goals and create a habit of challenging my weaknesses and finding areas to improve.’ marks Solomon. He admits that he had a habit of giving up on goals. It is because Jesse used to set huge daily benchmarks and fall short. However, now he is grateful that he can take smaller steps towards the goals each day instead of being hard on himself for not doing enough. This shiX has helped Jesse stay consistent.
Mistakes that taught something valuable to Solomon
Jesse says that he has overworked himself in a rush to promote shows. At present, he believes that less is more. Schwartz stays consistent and works smartly.
