Like other guitarists, I love to play in your face solo's and lead lines, but I take most pride and joy in laying down pocket grooves and catchy parts. I specialize in funk, soul, and r&b, but no matter what the style, providing a song with a solid groove is part of the foundation I like to bring, to let the artist and other instruments shine.
I am a professional freelance guitarist based out of Brooklyn, NY. I play in person and remote sessions, with original artists, as well as weddings, bar gigs, club dates, and corporate gigs. I additionally write music for media, and always play live guitar and or bass on them.
All of my experience between running my own funk and soul band, writing and touring with them for 6 years, playing for other artists and cover gigs, playing and composing my own media music, and studying at Berklee College of Music as a guitar principal have given me the skills, taste, and ears to provide songs and tracks with just what they need.

Jesse is professional and delivers a high quality product! I definitely recommend!
Great provider! Was able to recreate arrangement with ease. Tried a lot of different providers but he was the only one able to get the tone right. Great guitarist that I highly recommend for your your next project!
Jesse is a versatile guitarist well versed in different genres. As a song writer, I need musicians who can work fast and without much direction. Jesse knows exactly what I’m looking for ... just by listening to the music. At this point in my life, I don’t have extra time to teach people everything I need out of their performance on a track... they need to be ready to offer me something better than what I expect. Jesse fulfills these needs and more. I strongly recommend working with him. Thanks Jesse!
I’ve worked with Jesse on a few occasions, and each time he’s worked above and beyond to deliver an excellent product. I’ve already recommended him to friends for guitar performances, production and session work and everyone has come back to me with glowing reviews. Highly recommend working with him
