After Nadaclue’s tenure came to an end in 2000, Pino spent the next 10 years maturing and developing through other styles of music. The journey ultimately brought him to performing guitar and backup vox for Vegas Elite, Left Standing
. Sharing the stage with his two older brothers, Left Standing served up a solid dose of rock ‘n roll as well as incredible acoustic sets.
In 2010, Jesse decided to step out on his own, and selected his debut shows wisely - sharing the stage with folk punk troubadour legend Chuck Ragan
, quickly followed by supporting spots for master songsmith Kevin Devine
The fall of 2013 showed even more promise, as Pino was chosen to be the opener for Tegan and Sara
at the House of Blues, and later in 2015 for lead singer of Ours
, Jimmy Gnecco
. Comfortable with a full band or just an acoustic guitar in hand, Jesse continues to craft his own signature expression. Pino released The Burn EP in 2011 and is currently preparing to release a new EP showcasing his backing band The Vital Signs. The EP is set to be released in early 2018
