Nashville singer-songwriter Phil Lee will perform his original roots and rockabilly music. Lee’s wry wit is woven effortlessly into many of his songs, so audiences should be prepared to laugh until it hurts – but also shed a few tears when they hear Lee’s poignant lyrics. The Associated Press lauded Lee as “combining the social consciousness of Woody Guthrie with the twisted fury of Jerry Lee Lewis.” Singing with no apologies — and certainly no regrets — Lee can easily catch you off guard, moving seamlessly from blues to a Beatles-influenced tune. Plus Lee peppers his performance with a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor. Lee’s voice is a reedy twin to Bob Dylan, and his storylines sometimes etch the best and worst of people living five days ahead of flat broke. Lee describes himself as “one man, one guitar and a bag of great songs about love and death, misplaced faith, discarded spaceships, hard times and the funny side of all that.”
