Feeling a bit camera shy


A born visionary and wordsmith, Jesse Podunk wrote consistently for many years until 1998 when he began performing locally as a solo act and also assembled a full band, Jumpstart Racer. It was during this period that Podunk's melodic brand of Indie Folk began to take shape... influenced by the likes of Tripping Daisy , David Bowie, and The Beatles, et al. Rather abruptly, this creative period was cut short by the beginning of an experience that would shape both art and artist. In 1999 Podunk joined The Polyphonic Spree, led by former Tripping Daisy front man, Tim DeLaughter. Over the next four and a half years, Podunk would traipse endlessly around the US, Canada, and Europe with The Spree. Full of inspiration and approaching fatherhood, Podunk left The Spree in 2004 to focus on family as well as writing and performing his still blossoming call. Jesse Poe re-located to Austin, Texas in August of 2006 and within the span of 6 Months He founded a psyche pop rhythm section to help add an element of tasteful noise to this peaceful display of honesty in melody. ".........AN OLD SOUL WITH A CHILDLIKE HEART..A SPIRITED SONGWRITER WITH A LYRICAL RELEVANCE OF NOW ..I ADORE THIS RECORD." -Tim Delaughter/The Polyphonic Spree
