Jesse Friedberg (a.k.a. Jesse Jukebox) is on a mission to inspire children and their parents to be creative, compassionate, free-thinking, and a little bit smarter than he is (which is pretty darn smart). Based out of Cleveland, Ohio, Jesse accomplishes his mission by writing and recording original children’s music. He puts on amusing, thrilling, and interactive live shows that entertain children and grown-ups alike. (Did we mention he is great at talking about himself in third person?)
After graduating from Berklee College of Music, instead of mastering the art of Jazz and shredding guitars, Jesse dedicated his time to writing, recording, and performing fun and catchy children’s music for families.
In 2012, Jesse recorded a children’s album with multi-platinum award-winning producer, Michael Seifert, titled, “Jesse’s Jukebox”. In 2017, he released his follow-up children’s album, “Jesse’s Jukebox: There’s Music Everywhere”. In 2020, he released his third album, “Awesome!”, which he recorded with Grammy award-winning producer, Dean Jones. In 2021, Jesse accepted his invitation to join the Recording Academy. Jesse’s latest album, “Just a Minute”, will be released in early 2022.
Jesse is driven by Rock and Roll, The Blues, Batman, Electric guitars, Silliness, Funky Bass Lines, Pizza, Corny jokes, Loud Drums, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Banjos, Outer Space, and all things awesome.
Jesse is currently working on getting better at writing about himself. (It’s a slow process.)
