Purveyor of weird n lonely folk (now with a band). Having just recently released his new single "found the back of the tv remote" a folk gem on Tambourine Machine Records
this track is a personal reflection on dealing with losing someone you
care about and finding yourself with a lack of direction, the track
follows up the recent singles ‘something’, ‘if only it was alright now’
and last year’s debut EP ‘beech’. It expands upon the soft,
half-whispered sound of his previous releases, adding a sonic richness
that brings his songwriting to the fore. After his stunning duo set for #OportoTV in lockdown we can't wait to hear the full band might.
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.
