Singer/songwriter Jesse Pino is no stranger to the Vegas music scene. In 1998, at age 15, Pino formed the melodic punk band Nadaclue. Heavily inspired by the bands of Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph, Nadaclue quickly captured attention with their fast, driven beats, hook-laden songwriting with solid harmonies.
After Nadaclue’s tenure came to an end in 2000, Pino spent the next 10 years maturing and developing through other styles of music, a journey that would ultimately bring him to performing guitar and backup vocal duties for Las Vegas’ much-loved 5-piece rock band Left Standing. Sharing the stage with his two older brothers, Left Standing served 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 selected his debut shows wisely - sharing the stage with folk punk troubadour legend Chuck Ragan, quickly followed by a supporting spot 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. He later earned the prestige title of becoming RAW Vegas’s “Musician of the Year” under the RAW: Natural Born Artists Arts Organization, where the magazine highlighted his ability “to blur the once-pronounced line separating folk and punk.”
2015 found Pino opening for the lead singer of Ours, Jimmy Gnecco, and 2016 was another strong year, as he was honored with the title of Las Vegas’s “Best Singer-Songwriter” from Desert Companion Magazine.
