Jesse Daniel Edwards is an independent songwriter from the small mountain town of Cuyamaca, CA where he grew up without TV, internet, or significant exposure to the outside world. Leaving home at 16, he spent his late teens busking on street corners around the US and abroad.
While singing outside of honky tonks on Music Row in Nashville, TN, Jesse struck up a friendship with Al Bunetta (John Prine). Bunetta served as a mentor to the young artist, encouraging Jesse to tour full-time in the years to follow.
Jesse currently resides in Nashville and continues to write, record, and perform. His latest record “Violensia” (produced by Joe Chiccarelli) releases in fall 2022. His project, Juni Ata, features releases produced by Steve Cropper alongside collaborator Jacob Rosswog. Their latest single, “Someone Else’s Rising Sun”, arrives in spring of 2022, with an ensuing EP release to follow.
“Landon and Jesse, two friends, philosopher poets, and songsters met in Nashville in 2022 and immediately shared a love of books, red wine, and music. Both having recently undergone a reinvention during the pandemic, they hit the road with guitars in hand in 2022 to resume the path of artistic exploration, bringing forth their particular brand of lyrically rich and vocally resplendent solo songwriting.”
