Jesse Lenat

is a singer/songwriter and actor residing in Brooklyn, NY. Jesse has played roots and rock driven music with his brother David since they were young boys growing up on a cactus farm in Pennsylvania. In those days it was mostly AC/DC. As a songwriter Jesse now plumbs the depths of the American troubadour more in the style of Woody Guthrie.
