Based out of Vancouver, BC but raised in a small, rural town, Jesse LeBourdais has spent the majority of his adult life putting rubber to road and fingers to chords. Always on the move, he has played hundreds of shows across thousands of kilometres with little more than a guitar, his unique voice, and a will to endure all there is to be found. Songs steeped in the folk traditions of storytelling and fuelled by the raw emotion of punk rock. Common veins of life, humanity and hope shined through heart-felt lyrics and passionate performance.
Jesse and his band - the Long Winter - recorded 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. The album was recorded mostly live-on-the-floor and mixed with mostly analogue gear, resulting in his most cohesive, sonically driven and critically acclaimed 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.
Available on CD, Digital and Vinyl (coming soon)

The 2nd full length from Jesse LeBourdais, I GO BY THE SOUND, finds him fully embracing the bluegrass roots of his upbringing, while keeping a firm grip on the punk rock ethos and attitudes that have shaped his life. 13 tracks of fortitude and despair, loneliness and hope.
