Born in London into a musical family (father Bob Siebenberg drummer in Supertramp and mother Vicki Gorham Sieberberg, sister of Scott Gorham guitar player in Thin Lizzy), Jesse spent a lot of time in studios and on the road getting aquainted with life as a musician.

As Jess puts is, “They were best friends growing up (and still are), so I was around them a lot, soaking up the music thing. I never figured I’d grow up to do anything else. I started out on toys ‘r’ us Muppets drum kits, and as I got bigger was able to reach the pedals of my dad’s kit. I then moved on to learning bass, guitar, keys, and whatever else was laying around that I wouldn’t get grounded for tampering with!” Jesse began doing professional gigs at age thirteen as a drummer.

Around that time he was given access to his father’s home studio to learn to write and record his own compositions. After finishing high school and with a few national tours under his belt, Jesse attended Berklee College of Music in Boston on a scholarship to study film scoring, music production/engineering and composition.

His entrance exam tested him out of over 60% of the cirriculum and he ultimately returned to California to continue his studies at Westmont College.

At the age of 20, he joined Supertramp and contributed keyboard, guitar, vocal and percussion work on stage and in the studio. Playing various instruments on numerous albums, Jesse began branching out into production.

In the mid 90’s he co-produced Jonathan McEuen’s Sampolin’ 14 as well as 2 albums for local heros “The Jonathan Raffetto Band”. Around this time he did a European tour playing bass for Roger Hodgson’s "Open The Door" release.

Producing a few other groups and honing his craft, he then co-produced Crosby Loggins’ debut album “We All Go Home”. From there he caught the attention of Crosby’s father Kenny, and completed co-production of his new album “How About Now”.

Jesse met fellow singer/songwriter/producer Todd Hannigan at a session at Brotheryn Studios. They partnered up and have been operating Brotheryn studios since 2002. Brotheryn won awards for “Shelter” (best film X-Dance), “Hallowed Ground” (ESPN’s Action Sports Movie of the Year), “Thicker Than Water” (Surfer Magazine’s Video of the Year), “September Sessions” (ESPN’s Best Sports Movie of the Year), “Flow” (Best Documentary X-Dance), "Sliding Liberia" (people’s choice Alpinist FF, nominated for best score XDance), "Wave Riders" (Jameson’s Irish Int. FF Viewers’ Choice), “Shape Of Water” (Best Feature Documentary, World Cinema Award, Best Director (San Francisco Women’s Film Festival), National Association for Film and Digital Media Artists INSIGHT awards of excellence: Original score, editing, human rights, post-production, research, and original score…

Jesse also co-produced Todd Hannigan’s critically acclaimed debut album Volume 1. Todd and Jesse acquired a third partner in Jason Mariani (Local H, Supertramp). Jesse has traveled extensively nationally and internationally as a touring musician with groups such as Supertramp, Hanna-McEuen, A Fine Frenzy, Kenny Loggins, Crosby Loggins, Todd Hannigan and the Heavy 29’s, John McEuen and the String Wizards, Whisky Falls, Mark Hart (Crowded House) and many other bands of different genres.

In 2003 he had a lead single hit in Europe with a project called Gaia which he promoted extensively, performing at such events as “Art On Ice” featuring Olympic gold medalist Evgeni Plushenko.

He has co-billed with groups such as Coldplay, Wilco, Lenny Kravitz, The Black Keys, and has performed on Jay Leno and many other national and international TV promotion.

His debut album, “Undiscovery”, is complete will be promoted extensively in the coming months. Jesse describes it as an accumulation of everything he’s learned about life and music thus far, and is looking forward to putting out much more music over the coming years.
