Jesse is a musician and producer best known as the bass player of the British pop-rock band, Keane. Alongside performance, Jesse has dedicated his voice as a campaigner for music accessibility in schools. Including a recent interview with the BBC lobbying the government to support and fund music in schools.

He also founded and runs a community arts centre called Old Jet on an abandoned U.S. Air Force base in the English countryside near Suffolk. 

The episode discusses how collaboration and community are key in the music industry, and how education today supports but also sometimes fails young musicians and artists.
