Jesse Sprinkle (born June 22, 1976) is a singer, songwriter, drummer, guitarist, and rapper.


At 13, Jesse and his brother Aaron Sprinkle formed the Christian alternative rock group Poor Old Lu, for which Jesse contributed drums, percussion and vocals.[1] Between 1990 and 2002, they released 8 albums and toured nationally. Poor Old Lu amicably disbanded in 2002.[2]

His first solo effort was an instrumental mail-order-only CD called Sunsites[3] based around Jesse's acoustic guitar and cello by friend Phil Peterson. Jesse and Phil recorded under several different names around this time, including:

  • Clive Staples (Persuading You Near)
  • The Color Nature (Scenes)
  • Dinner Mint (A Tribute to Stryper)

Jesse then took a more traditional band musical approach and recorded Roobrik under the moniker The World Inside.[4]

Jesse continues to record his own music, while drumming for other bands,[3] Morella's Forest, Demon Hunter,[3] Dead Poetic,[3] Burning Daylight,[3] and Transparent. His live percussive contributions include Michael Knott, Denison Witmer, Kutless, Starflyer 59, The Lashes, and more.
