    Jesse was easy to communicate with, his turnaround time was really quick, and the tracks he recorded were exactly what I needed for my project.


  • I've been working with Jesse for almost a decade on various products and this experience has led me to regard him, not only as one of the best bass players in the industry, but also as a very talented and creative write. Know that you are working with one of the best musicians and one of the most genuine people in LA
