bio

Jesse Ray was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and was brought up in a musical family. He spent his upbringing studying music theory and exercising proficiency on multiple instruments, and ultimately discovered his love for making records. Jesse began his Los Angeles journey when he became Kanye West’s engineer on the “Yandhi” and “Jesus is King” albums, and that lead to mixing for artists including UMI, Andy Grammer, and Burna Boy. Most-recently, Jesse worked creatively alongside Diddy and Timbaland during the mixing of Burna Boy’s Grammy Award-Winning 2020 LP, “Twice as Tall”. Jesse’s bombastic approach to mixing creates an explosive four-dimensional soundscape, and yields a wild variety of sonically-emotional results. His lifelong dedication and love for music grants him the ability to hear the music emotionally, make artistic mix decisions creatively, and refine those sonic decisions with technical precision.
