My first introduction to Jesses work was through his album “Prison”. It was bold, fresh and disturbing. His voice on that CD held so much pain that you knew the writing had to be autobiographical. At the same time you felt Jesse’s sense of humor and wit that reached far beyond the realities of his youth. He was what one childhood friend called a confabulator. He took the truth and then shaped it into something uniquely his own… a story, a poem, a song. Something that was able to tap into a shared human experience. It wasn’t always pretty but it was usually touching, confrontational and complicated.
