About This Project

Edmonton, AB

Jesse and the Dandelions are a 4-piece art/space pop band based in Edmonton Alberta, led by Jesse Northey, with Conner Ellinger (drums), Daniel Sadmark (bass), Lucas Chaisson (guitar) and Dean Kheroufi (keys). After a short, but successful figure skating career, Northey decided to hang up his skates, and committed his life to music full-time (although you can catch his sweet skills in his new 80’s inspired video for “No Fun”). This was clearly a pretty good life choice, with the band earning consistent rotation on campus radio, and opening for the likes of Attack in Black, Hollerado, and July Talk. The band has been very active in Western Canada with success on CBC and campus community radio, as well as great opening slots for bands like Attack In Black, Hollerado,Said the Whale and July Talk. Highlights have included showcases at Breakout West,Canadian Music Week, JUNOfest, Sled Island, over 100k Spotify spins for True Blue, and the inclusion on Spotify’s Modern Psychedelia Playlist.
