Jesse Valenzuela (born May 22, 1962) is an American rock singer and musician who is perhaps best known as a member of the Alternative rock band, the Gin Blossoms. Valenzuela was originally the vocalist in the Gin Blossoms when the band first formed in 1987.[1] In 1988, he switched roles with the band's new guitarist, Robin Wilson. He continued to be a member until the band's breakup in 1997, and reunited with the rest of the group in 2002. In 2002, he released a solo album, "Tunes Young People Will Enjoy." In 2004, Valenzuela collaborated with Canadian singer-songwriter Craig Northey on the album Northey Valenzuela, and they co-wrote and performed "Not A Lot Goin' On", the theme song to the Canadian sitcom Corner Gas.
