Jesse began his career in music at an early age. The son of a guitar player and avid bluegrass fan, his first instrument was a banjo. At age 10, however, he discovered rock and roll. The banjo found its way to the closet and a bass player was born. Over the next several years he played and collaborated with various musicians, and found a creative bond with two of his classmates. This group would later become “Days of the New”, and the day after his high school graduation, Jesse Vest was on tour supporting the band’s debut album. The project turned out to be quite successful. Appearances on MTV, The Late Show with David Letterman, and opening shows for bands like Metallica and Aerosmith helped the band to become a platinum-selling artist in both the U.S. and Canada. Citing creative differences, the band split up in 1998. Jesse moved on to co-found another band, Tantric, whose first album was released in 2001, enjoyed much of the same success. They performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and shared the stage with bands like 3 Doors Down and Creed.
