Jesse Rice is a singer-songwriter and producer in Nashville, TN. Originally from low-country South Carolina, Rice moved to Nashville in 2002, where he began working for EMI Music Publishing. Since 2007, Rice has been a staff songwriter at Artist Revolution Publishing. At the beginning of 2011, Rice released a record of a collection of his songs that he has written the past couple years: "Somethin' Strong", which is available on iTunes. He also released a song to iTunes called "Damn Good Day (To Be A Clemson Tiger), which will be used this fall by Clemson University for football. He has worked closely with Chase Rice and the Florida-Georgia Line, producing Chase's debut EP "Country As Me", as well as co-writing all the songs on that record, including the first single "Buzz Back". He also wrote a song on Florida-Georgia Line's debut EP entitled "When I Never Let Her Go"... In addition to writing songs for a living, Rice also tours around the South playing shows.
Currently, I'm working on a project two years in the making "The Pirate Sessions", which is a collection of island and beach and pirate songs that really speak to my heart. In my heart I really believe that that's who I am as an artist and where I'm most at home...This collection of 16 songs, from last years Pirate Sessions, and this years Pirate Sessions II, will be released in May. Hope you enjoy!
