Lee Watson is releasing his first album on Dead Radio, Love's new label and he's invited Joey Landreth to join in the fun! Lee Watson (Elora, ON) https://leewatsonmusic.com/pages/bio LIKE A BRUSHSTROKE ACROSS A CANVAS, LEE WATSON’S SONGWRITING SWEEPS THROUGH MUSICAL LANDSCAPES, WARM AND KNOWING. For the better part of a decade, Lee wrote and performed as a founding member of Vancouver’s critically acclaimed The Breakmen. In this new solo project, he brings his influences in traditional music back home to his roots in rural Ontario, creating a collection of songs that evoke a sense of awe and reverence for the windswept pines and vast lakes of Ontario’s Hinterland. Born in Owen Sound, Lee’s love for Canadian songwriters and the sound of music on vinyl was sparked by a childhood raised within arms reach of his father’s turntable. Joey Landreth (Winnipeg, MB) http://www.joeylandreth.com Born and raised on the Canadian prairies, Joey Landreth has grown up with a guitar in his hands. Working as a side man through his teens and early twenties Joey grew up on the road, playing music across genres from gospel to country. At twenty-five Joey joined forces with his older brother as they worked on their first independent project The Bros. Landreth. The band was immediately successful, winning a Juno with their first album, among other awards across multiple genres. The band rose quickly to success turning the heads of musical heavy-weights such as Bonnie Raitt, John Oates and Jimmie Vaughan. In 2016 Joey is launching his solo career. With the rare ability to be at once vulnerable and open yet seriously blow audiences away with his musical proficiency, Joey’s career as an independent artist is expected to rise to great heights quickly.
