A singer-songwriter a self-professed rock'n'soul complex, Sam Lee is making grass-roots waves both locally and across the country. His 2011 debut EP, Better Half was recorded at the Blasting Room Studios by lauded Rise Against engineer Andrew Berlin, and produced by Christopher Jak. It has received radio play locally in Colorado, New York, and on over one hundred fm college-radio stations around the country. Sam has shared the stage with national acts like Dia Frampton, Allen Stone, Tyler Ward, Air Dubai, Churchill, The Epilogues, and Michael McDonald. This year, Sam has performed at Daytrotter, and his first full-length album, “Raise Your Flag” is set to drop in April.
"Sam Lee...is the epitome of a storyteller. His lyrics are personal, raw, relatable, and his stage presence is intimate...he is one musician who's name won't soon be forgotten." writes Colorado Musiz Buzz.
In 2010, after several years collaborative projects, Sam began his own independent journey as a singer/songwriter. Today, he is making a name for himself in his hometown, Denver, CO and around the country as a compelling lyricist, singer and instrumentalist as well as a true-blue showman.
Though currently hailing from Denver, Sam has spent time living all across the country; on both coasts and in music city, Nashville, TN. He has been heard to say however, that he feels most at home on the road.
Sam's songs paint a picture of love and loss, passion and addiction, hope for a better future, life on the road and the power of music to capture a young man's soul. His voice is alternately crisp and gritty, powerful and soulful. The songs carry heavy doses of classic influences like The Boss, Petty, The Allmans, and The Black Crowes but ring with the modern flourish and discipline of John Mayer and Rob Thomas. Listening to Sam's songs on record, or seeing him live, begs not the question of whether or not he will become an important part of rock music's new age, but when.
