Growing up in a musical family in Kennebunkport, Maine, Jesse began playing the mandolin and piano before he could walk. As a teen, he began composing his own music and experimenting with sounds from rock, classical and jazz. His love of cinema and music led him to Los Angeles, where he honed his film scoring skills collaborating with some of the greatest contemporary film composers.
Today, Jesse is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and music producer who has worked on more than 50 feature films from studio blockbusters to independent documentaries. Jesse is the series composer for Bosch, the popular new episodic from Amazon Studios based on Michael Connelly’s bestselling detective book series. His other composing credits include the comedy A Haunted House 2, Showtime’s The Big C, action thrillers Ca$h and Game of Death, the supernatural thriller I Will Follow You Into the Dark and the award-winning surf documentary Splinters. As an additional composer, his credits include Sex and the City, The Proposal, The Last Song, Why Did I Get Married Too? and Akeelah and the Bee. Jesse’s instrumental repertoire includes both conventional and exotic stringed instruments, keyboards and analog synthesizers.
In addition to his film and television scores, Jesse’s music is used in high profile movie trailers, commercials, films and television shows through his company Agami Music. His clients include Fox Searchlight, Sony Pictures, CBS, The Weinstein Company, Sony Xperia and PG&E Green Initiative. Recent movie marketing campaigns include The Martian, Burnt, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Taken 3, Home and Maze Runner 2: The Scorch Trials.
