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.
