With the help of myspace, “J.James: THIN LINE” was downloaded around the world. This landed Jesse recognition at Pittsburgh’s Hip Hop awards show in 2006 earning 2nd place under Wiz Khalifa as "best hip hop artist."
Jesse released a mixtape of raw recordings entitled “Jesse Mader Presents: J.James Underground” in 2011.
Age and experience gave Jesse the ammunition needed for his signature album, “Breath by Breath,” released in the Summer of 2014, highlighting his growth as a songwriter & producer. Regional performances with his high energy band, “Jesse Mader & The Urban Rock Project,” have earned him a welcome reputation as "The Bruce Springsteen of Hip Hop."
2017 and 2018 wrapped up an era for Jesse, as he released a 2-part time capsule album called Through the Years, a nostalgic collection for fans who have been following Jesse since his musical journey began back in 1999 as a young teenager.
