With over 30 years of playing live, as well as in studio recording/production, song and story writing, it would seem that Lee Sinclair is here to stay. Through the years he has worked with many musicians in the Carolina's, from the local
weekend bands to multi-platinum artist, The Marshall Tucker Band.
Over the last three decades, he has established himself as one of the premiere singer/songwriters and multi-instrumentalist in the Southeast. Lee's lyrics are a journey through his life, trials, tribulations, successes and failures. Lee has a gift that delivers a dynamic performance and his music is truly soul driven.
Lee has become an in-demand session and live player for other artists and his extraordinary talents have lead him to be part of the opening acts for .38 Special, Blackfoot, and The Little River Band to name a few. He has appeared on many recordings in the Carolina's and continues to lend his many talents to other musicians all over the Southeast.
Lee’s debut CD “Bleedin’ Black and White” was released in 2008 by his company Ruff Patch Music, LLC. and now eight years later, his follow-up does not disappoint. The growth in his life and his music is prolific.
Recorded over the better part of last decade, the new album is slated for electronic release in the Summer of 2016.
High Cotton shows a true storyteller/songwriter that does it because he loves to do it. He writes what he feels, what he is, and what he believes, without the concern for the status-quo or the music industry.
Lee's songs and stories are not to be missed....
