Along the way he learned enough about life to know that he wanted to live it instead of squandering it and enough about love to walk away when it was wrong and recognize when it’s right, even if it came in some unusual packages (“Jemima James”).
This is country music with a rock and roll heart. When Lee sings about his past you can hear a tinge of, not exactly regret, or even shame, but hard-earned wisdom.
A masterful songwriter, Lee’s work reflects impressions made on him by everyone from Jerry Lee Lewis and Howlin’ Wolf to Arthur Alexander and the mersey beat sound of the british invasion of the 1960’s. His road-worn voice, clever wordplay and skilled harmonica work will rightfully bring Bob Dylan (a major influence) to mind but even though, as Phil says, “if it sounds like something, that’s on purpose” he is his own man. His unique, uncompromising and sometimes surprisingly moving tunes are 100% Phil Lee.
