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 write and tour full-time in the years to follow.


Jesse currently resides in Nashville and continues to write, record, and perform after a years-long sabbatical working in the mountains. His latest album "Violensia" (produced by Joe Chiccarelli) releases in 2023. His collaborative project, Juni Ata, features releases produced by Steve Cropper alongside arranger Jacob Rosswog. Their latest single, "Someone Else's Rising Sun", and ensuing EP are available as of fall 2022.
