Information

Bobby Lee trades in a wide screen brand of cosmic country-folk, full of space and
pawn shop guitars. There are touches of JJ Cale’s analogue Americana, the
swampy groove of Tony Joe White and Richard Thompson’s sinewy, modal guitar
work. Amps hum in the warm afternoon sun, kids and dogs snooze on the grass
and broken drum machines keep time with the universe…
Bobby released his debut album, Shakedown in Slabtown, in August 2020, on his
own Natural Histories imprint, which Mojo Magazine described as “word of
mouth sensation amongst discerning heads.” It was swiftly followed by Origin
Myths in March 2021, released on the legendary Tompkins Square Records,
becoming album of the week on Huey Morgan’s 6Music radio show and gaining
support from BBC Late Junction, No Depression, The Guardian, NTS and WFMU,
amongst others. His latest single, “Walking With Trees”, a collaboration with Mia
Doi Todd, was released in September 2021 via Re:Warm.
