Jesse Iaquinto and the Fireside Collective

Local musician Jesse Iaquinto is in the process of creating “The Fireside Collective Album,” which will feature “some of Asheville’s best musicians and recorded in a state of the art recording studio.” Iaquinto wants to raise $5,000 to make the project a reality. He is already $1,800 closer to that goal and has a little over two weeks in his Kickstarter campaign.

About the album: “The concept for the Fireside Collective came to me over my years of attending music festivals. The bond of the community was always strengthened during the late night jam sessions around the fire. The Fireside Collective is greater than the musicians that make it up. It is the spirit of community and the warmth of the fire that The Fireside Collective represents.”
