Jesse & Joy

Jesse & Joy are a best-selling, award-winning sibling pop duo from Mexico City. Jesse Huerta plays piano, lead guitar, and sings harmony, while Joy Huerta is lead vocalist and plays rhythm guitar. They both write. Their sound is a bright, warm amalgam of hooky rock, sparkling folk, norteño, pop, and cumbia, delivered by voices that meld seamlessly amid infectiously memorable choruses. Their 2006 Warner debut, Esta Es Mi Vida, won multiple Latin Grammys on its way to platinum certification. 2009's gold-certified Electricidad went all the way to number three on the U.S. Latin Pop chart. 2011's ¿Con Quién Se Queda El Perro? won multi-platinum status due to the chart topping single "Corre." 2015's Un Besito Más topped the U.S. Latin and Latin Pop charts and went to number three in Mexico; it took home the Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album. 2016's gold-certified Jesse & Joy was their first bilingual album; it contained some English versions of songs from their previous outings. In 2020, they issued Aire. Introducing reggaeton and trap to their production mix, the set featured collaborations with J Balvin on "Mañana Es Too Late" and Luis Fonsi on "Tanto." Born in Mexico City, the sibling duo didn't seriously begin writing songs until 2001, when they were 18 and 15, respectively, sitting down together with their father to see what they could produce. With Jesse on guitar, piano, drums, and background vocals, and Joy on vocals and guitar, the pair practiced constantly -- hard work that paid off when they were signed to a major-label deal with Warner Music Mexico in April 2005 as Jesse & Joy. A few months later, they made their live debut in front of 100,000 people in their hometown at the bequest of popular duo Sin Bandera, the band that was sponsoring the event. More performances -- including one opening for James Blunt in May -- followed before Jesse & Joy's debut single, "Espacio Sideral," and their album, Esta Es Mi Vida (recorded in San Diego with producer Kiko Cibrian), came out in the summer of 2006. A U.S. release followed the next year. The Tom Russo-produced Electricidad appeared in 2009, followed by the Martin Terefe-produced ¿Con Quién Se Queda el Perro? in 2012. Extensive touring ensued after the album's release. The group performed internationally for the better part of two years with multiple appearances at the Latin American Music Awards, the Latin Grammys, and Coachella. A live audio/video package with unreleased bonus material was released in 2014 as Soltando al Perro, while the duo were in the recording studio. Jesse was joined behind the boards by Terefe, Fraser T. Smith, and Juan Luis Guerra, who produced and sang the title track "Besito Mas." The album's first single, "Ecos de Amor," was issued in August and placed inside the Top 50 on various charts, followed by the full-length in December 2015. Un Besito Mas spent more than 26 weeks on the Latin albums charts and peaked at number one. 2017's Jesse & Joy was a bilingual compilation, containing some Anglo versions of songs from previous outings. In 2019 J Balvin collaborated with the duo on the hit single "Mañana Es Too Late." The duo released Aire in 2020. Adding trap and reggaeton beats to their already heady mix, in addition to the Balvin collaboration, it also featured "Tanto" with singer Luis Fonsi. Co-produced with Terefe and Pooh Bear, Aire also included the singles "Te Espeé" and "Lo Nuestro Vale Más." - Marisa Brown & Thom Jurek
