Jesse Sprinkle (born June 22, 1976) is a singer, songwriter, drummer, guitarist, and rapper. His musical career started as a drummer alongside his brother Aaron Sprinkle in the Christian alternative rock group Poor Old Lu. After Poor Old Lu amicably disbanded, Jesse moved to New York where he married. His first solo effort was an instrumental mail-order-only CD called Sunsites 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 decided to take more of a traditional band musical approach and recorded Roobrik under the moniker The World Inside.
