That’s all you really need to know but just in case you need something for a program or whatever here’s my “official bio”.
While Jesse’s freelance resume boasts an extensive list of Canadian and international names it is his long term musical collaborations with west coast artists that have resulted in his most notable work. He has appeared on dozens of recordings with western Canadian musicians including Jodi Proznick’s Juno nominated CDs Foundations (2007) and Sun Songs (2018), Cory Weeds’ Juno nominated Up a Step (2012), and Jerrold Dubyk’s WCMA Jazz Album of the Year The Maverick (2008). Jesse has also released three albums with his own group The Nightcrawlers and has been a regular member of rockabilly power trio Cousin Harley for nearly two decades.
Jesse is also a dedicated educator and currently enjoys a busy teaching schedule at The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music in downtown Vancouver.
