Eric Lee, a Pennsylvania-born songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, shapes songs with stand-alone melodies and rich musical backdrops. From the personal to the sublime, they range from tales of honkytonk heartache to anthems of social consciousness and are told with a language of poetic and raw honesty. Lee draws from a well of uncommon musical depth, having worked professionally in recording studios, festival stages, and on the road with acclaimed artists in both folk and bluegrass (The Kennedys, Eric Andersen, Peter Rowan) from an early age.
