It's funny; I've been away from tumblr for a while and I've missed you.

Hi there,

That’s incredibly sweet to hear! Sadly, there is always compromise in life. I record tunes so that I can be close to my close ones even when I’m far away.

I hope you’ll listen to my songs next time!

Always nearby,
Jesse

What artists/bands would you recommend? I also think you're one of the most charming men I've ever come across. Thank you for sharing your talent.

Alexa,

You flatter me. I’m certainly happy to share what I do with people as they are so kind and generous with praise. The reality is that I should be thanking you!

To make it easier on me to choose, I’ll let you know what is on my ‘recently played’ list. I should pre-face this by saying I’ve been going through an intense country & bluegrass phase. 

Merle Haggard - Mama Tried

Milk Carton Kids - Ash & Clay

First Aid Kit - The Lion’s Roar

Gillian Welch - Soul Journey

Mississippi John Hurt - 1928 Sessions

Tony Rice - The Bill Monroe Collection

Darol Anger - E-And’ A

In general though, listen to Laura Marling, Tallest Man On Earth, Phantogram, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend and Bruce Springsteen. This list could literally go on forever it seems!  

Let me know what you think,

Jesse

Congratulations for your tumblr, photos and the beautiful voice ... Your songs are completely addictive, I will surely recommend them :)

Hi there,

If congratulations are in order it’s because you are sweet enough to reach out and tell me how you feel! I really appreciate the love and support you’re sending my way. I sincerely hope this message finds you well and that you enjoy the tunes that I produce in the future!

Be well,

Jesse

Do you ever look back on your own blog and realize you’ve forgotten that it’s the most wonderful thing of all time because it’s 100% of you
