Apart from his work as a solo artist, he spent five years on the road with The Smart Brothers, releasing 4 recordings and performing with the likes of First Aid Kit and Jason Mraz.As a young songwriter, Jesse relocated to Nashville where he became a protege of Al Bunetta (John Prine, Oh Boy Records). Honing his art busking outside of honky tonks and writing on Music Row in the years that followed, JDE crafted his raw talent into the passionate vocals and smart lyrics that would become his signature style. Favoring a DIY approach in the vein of Elliot Smith or Conor Oberst, Jesse’s heartfelt indie folk and alt-country sound has endured with his fans through his self-produced recordings and demos, along with his engaging live performances. His music has been featured in radio, TV, and independent films and is available on Netflix, Spotify (featured artist), and Apple Music.

Chorus:I swore I'd be there for you until the bitter endbut the time to prove it to you has come and goneand come againI won't say that I don't love you stillBecause that's a lieif I never get to PhiladelphiaI'll regret it until the day I dieVerse 1:If you had told me back thenthat I would lose her in the endit would have made no differenceit wouldn't change anythingI could have tried a little hardermade the days a little longerbeen strongermaybe that would have changed everythingVerse 2:I could have gone running after youand done what desperate people doyou walked into that setting sunand I was desperate as anyoneso I'm going to work hard every dayput a little money awayI'm leaving this two-star town and I'll never look back again
