Jesse Rae is a Scottish singer, songwriter, filmmaker, and film director from St. Boswells in Scotland, who performs on vocals, guitar, and keyboard. He became personally and professionally connected to funk music when he moved to the United States in the 1970s. In the 1980s, he produced solo singles with some of the decade’s greatest funk musicians, including Parliament-Funkadelic’s Bernie Worrell and Zapp founder Roger Troutman. Much of the material became part of his 1984 album The Thistle. On his return home, Rae became known as the Funk Ambassador to Scotland.
