Jesse Turner
First Vocals/Accordion

Ever since he was a boy, Jesse Turner, was playing on pots and pans. It was his fathers dream to see him perform in front of thousands of people. Unfortunately, by the time Jesse was nine years old, his father passed away. Leaving Jesse with mixed emotions, he began to look for hobbies to forget about the pain. He quickly learned how to play every conjunto instrument and presented his talent in church. Jesse toured with gospel bands until the age of 15 when a local band offered him a job performing at schools, weddings, and birthday parties. As he grew older he learned about what love, hate, and basically what every teenager feels. He wrote songs about how he felt and about his personal experiences in life. He never shared his songs with anybody because he was to afraid of criticism. As time went on, he learned how to sing and began to sing his songs on stage. The response was a good one, which gave him confidence to continue. Jesse also gained musical experience by playing drums with Ruben Vela and accordion with Grupo Intento. He is now the lead vocalist and accordion player for Siggno.
