- Beautiful Soul (2004)
- Right Where You Want Me (2006)
- Departure (2008)
Tropes that apply to him:
- Break Up Song: "It's Over", "How Do You Sleep", "Runnin", "Not Your Enemy", "Anybody", "Just Go"
- Break Up Break Out: From Dream Street.
- Celebrity Voice Actor
- Darker and Edgier: He plays a pretty messed up and creepy person in his Law and Order episode.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: "The Best Day Of My Life" refers to a one night stand turned relationship, nobody over the age of 15 would read it that way though. Also his second and third albums.
- Grief Song: "Invincible"
- Green-Eyed Monster: Telling his girlfriend not to be jealous in "She's No You."
- Hidden Depths: "Bleeding Love" Leona Lewis's worldwide smash hit was originally written and recorded by him.
- Hotter and Sexier: Walking this path for a while.
- Ink-Suit Actor: What he more or less is for Terence in the Disney Fairies movies.
- Intercourse with You: Present in albums second and third, basically all subtly out the window on "Into Ya."
- Living Emotional Crutch: "Because You Live" is a sweet example.
"Because you live
- Love at First Sight: "What's Your Name?"
- Love Is A Drug: "Relapse"
- Long Title: "Right Where You Want Me," "Why Is Love So Hard To Find?," "Why Don't You Kiss Her," "The Best Day of My Life"
- New Sound Album / Genre Shift: "Departure" has an RNB edge none of his other albums have.
- Obsession Song: Most of his first album is this.
- Playing Against Type: See Darker and Edgier above. This also applies to Dick Grayson as Nightwing where his voiceover work is concerned. Jesse usually voices young, heroic characters. Not only is Nightwing older than most of his other characters (19 years old according to Word of God), he's also involved in some very morally grey activities, making him an Anti-Hero.
- Re Release The Song: Beautiful Soul cleaned up for A Cinderella Story.
- Refuge in Audacity: "Into Ya" throws all subtlety out the window for a hilarious result.
- Silly Love Songs: Several, but one that is still pretty well-remembered is "Beautiful Soul."
- Unplugged Version: He does extremely well live with just a guitar.
- Updated Re Release: Departure was rereleased with five bonus tracks and called Recharged...
Don't want a minute to go to waste, I want you and your beautiful soul...
