Jesse Blake Rundle

Boise, ID


Jesse Blake Rundle is a composer and guitarist based in Idaho. He was raised in the one place with hills in Kansas and his music is shaped by that upbringing – the wind, the long sunsets, and the unquestionable promise of space.

After releasing instrumental music in the 2000s under the mathbird moniker, Jesse took a long musical hiatus. It was interrupted in 2017 by a Sears & Roebuck guitar he discovered in a Boise music store.

He will release his latest project, Radishes and Flowers, in spring 2020. It features the poetry of Wallace Stevens arranged as a song cycle of indie folk songs. The 12-track album was recorded at Mixed Metaphor Studios with engineer Nate Agenbroad.

Jesse lives in Boise and can be found working on several new music projects, writing poetry, and strumming on the front stoop.
