RT if like me have been playing acoustic guitar since 12 yo but still change strings like its the first time.
Based out of Vancouver, BC but with a heart from a small town, Jesse LeBourdais has spent the last 5 years putting rubber to pavement and fingers to chords. Constantly on the move, he has played hundreds of shows across thousands of kilometres with little more than a guitar, his voice and a will to endure all there is to encounter. Songs steeped in the folk traditions of storytelling and fuelled by the raw emotion of punk rock lead to shouted heart-felt lyrics of life, and boot-stomping melodies that you hold in your bones.
Jesse and his band - the Long Winter - began recording his 4th full length album “GRIEF INTENSITY FRIENDSHIP” in the fall of 2016 with legendary Engineer/Producer Jesse Gander at Vancouver’s Rain City Recorders. Recorded mostly live-on-the-floor and mixed with mostly analogue gear, the result is his most cohesive and sonically driven collection of songs to date. 12 songs borne out of the pain of loss, the strength of friendship, and the excitement of things to come.

Following a the death of an old family friend, THE WORST KIND OF AMBITION, came out as both a reaction and a catharsis. 5 of the songs are reworked Public Domain songs from folk legend, stripped down and built back up like only he can. The other 5 are original songs that show a unique and passionate take on life and lays the foundation of prolific songwriting that has been built on ever since.
