Singer/songwriter Jesse Pino is no stranger to the music scene. The Vegas native musician/martial artist first started making music seriously in 1998-99. At age 15 he formed the melodic punk band Nadaclue. Heavily inspired by the bands of Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph, they gained a fair amount of popularity capturing kids with their fast, driven beats, hook-laden song writing with solid harmonies.
Soon after Nadaclue’s short lived 2 year span, Pino spent the next 10 years (2000-2010) maturing and developing through other styles of music which would bring him on guitar and backup vocals for Las Vegas’ much-loved 5-piece rock band Left Standing. Sharing the stage with his two older brothers, Left Standing serves up a welcome dose of rock n roll as well as incredible acoustic sets.
In 2010, Jesse decided to step out on his own and pursue his own creativity. 2011 saw his debut, sharing the stage with punk/folk/troubadour legend Chuck Ragan, and later in the fall with master songsmith Kevin Devine. The fall of 2013 showed more promise being the opener for
Tegan and Sara, and soon after earning the prestige title of becoming RAW Vegas’s “Musician of the Year” under the RAW: Natural Born Artists Arts Organization. In 2015, Jesse recently opened for the lead singer of Ours, Jimmy Gnecco at the Bunkhouse Saloon.
2016 starts off strong for Pino, being honored with the title of Las Vegas’s “Best Singer-Songwriter” from KNPR. Org & Desert Companion Magazine.
Comfortable with a full band or just an acoustic guitar in hand, Jesse continues to craft his own signature blend. Pino released The Burn EP in 2011 and is currently preparing to release a new E.P. showcasing his backing band The Vital Signs. The EP is set to be released in 2016.
