Jesse James Rutherford (born August 21, 1991), also known mononymously as Jesse,[1] is an American singer and actor, known as the lead singer of the band the Neighbourhood. He is currently in a long term relationship with Devon Lee Carlson, co-founder of Wildflower phone cases. [2]


After acting in commercials as a child, Rutherford landed a role in the 2002 film Life or Something Like It, followed by a role in the 2002 film Bundy and in a small television role in the 2002 Star Trek: Enterprise episode Marauders.

In 2011, Rutherford released a mixtape named "Truth Hurts, Truth Heals." In 2011, Rutherford co-founded genre-blending pop group the Neighbourhood, who presented a mix of atmospheric indie rock, electronica, and hip-hop beats with melodic, R&B-inflected vocals.[3] His music career with the Neighbourhood began in 2012 with their first song "Female Robbery" which was followed by "Sweater Weather",[4] the latter which reached number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in June 2013.[5]

In early 2016, Rutherford released his book &. It features pictures of himself, shot by Jessie English. Rutherford stated that he used clothes from his own closet, and shot until he ran out of clothes.

In January 2016, Rutherford branched out and began releasing songs on Soundcloud under the name "the Factoury." On November 10, 2017, Rutherford released his debut solo studio album, &, containing 11 tracks with no features. It was previously announced on November 3rd, through an article from Pidgeons & Planes.

On December 17th, 2018, Jesse announced that he was going on his first solo tour in 2019.

On April 2nd, 2019, Jesse announced a second solo album called GARAGEB&, along with its album cover and the tracklist. The album was officially released on April 12, 2019. The album's name is inspired by Jesse's rediscovery of his love for writing music as he was trying to fight his dependency on his phone and social media. Instead of using his phone to check his social media, instead he started using the GarageBand app to make music. Ten out of the album's 12 tracks are made on the app. [6]
