Fans of early Posies, harmony-ridden, acoustic-driven pure pop, REJOICE! It`s hard to find a band that better epitomizes what why so many folks fell so hard for The Posies during their “Failure” and “Dear 23” period(those Hollies-esque harmonies!) than Jesse Sprinkle`s “Unnoticed”. Fans of Michael Penn, Neil Finn, Ice Cream Hands and the those rare moments when Elliot Smith made happy pop music are going to, simply, be smitten and fall hard for this one. Sprinkle used to be in the band Poor Old Lu, who released some legendary, but hard to find albums in the 90`s. Soaring open chorded strums and blended vocals fulfill the connection to all the aforementioned bands. Crisp guitar lines and rich, soothing vocals urge the complete success of this project clearly into focus, opening up fresh pop vistas of effortless strumming and lovely melodies. IT does not get much better than this for fans of acoustically, chiming, ringing power pop than this. Lyrically rich, the songs rely on sugar-sweet harmonies on every second of this CD. Extremely Highly Recommended!
Jesse, a Seattle Washington native was thrust into the music industry over a decade ago as the drummer for the legendary underground group Poor Old Lu. And since they disbanded in 1996 he has managed to stay busy as a drummer, songwriter, and recording engineer. Jesse is currently residing in the majestic village of Dansville New York, where he owns and operates the illuminata recording company, engineering, producing, photographing, and designing for all sorts of musical outfits.You might have also heard jesse performing and or recording with the following artists: dead poetic – demon hunter – serene uk – paloma – robert deeble – annie quick – starflyer 59 – kutless, paul wright, michael knott, etc… dead poetic and demon hunter can both be seen on mtv’s head bangers ball and extreme rock shows.
