Adam Lee’s first solo release, 'Sincerely, Me', turned traditionalism on its head. In support of the album he completed a second European tour and played shows with Dave Alvin, Lucero, and Frank Turner. He also dug deeper into his own roots: from Springsteen and Petty to the indie and punk rock records he grew up on.
Adam previously fronted the scrappy alt-country outfit Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Company. Their time was spent in the remaining American honky tonks, time which eventually paid off: he was nominated for Dale Watson’s Ameripolitan Awards and had his songs land in the Kevin Smith films Red State and Tusk. Following these successes, Adam accepted an offer for a leading role in the Tony Award-winning musical Million Dollar Quartet, under the musical direction of Chuck Mead.
Adam Lee's life is movement. As a military kid, Adam called many different places home. His music does the same. ‘Sincerely, Me’ reflects all of this. Roots-rock songwriter Justin Wells sums it up: “Somebody’s gonna file this album under Americana, but that's because Adam Lee isn't a genre...the record nods at several American musics without knowing the meaning of derivative.”
Adam is currently recording the follow-up to his solo debut with producer Duane Lundy (Ringo Starr, Horse Feathers, Joe Pug).
