Songsmith and guitarist Leroy Lee creates intimate, hypnotic tunes drawing the listener into his unique world. From driving guitar riffs to intricate finger-picking melodies, Leroy is reminiscent of English folk legends like Nick Drake and Bert Jansch.
Based in Sydney, Australia Leroy was named Triple J’s “Unearthed” winner in 2009 and best known for his lamp-lit folk tune “Drawing Smoke” (which featured on Packed To The Rafters), Leroy has spent the last few years traversing Australia performing with the likes of The Frames (The Swell Season), Missy Higgins, Lior, Folk Uke, Steve Poltz, Kaki King, Lisa Mitchell and Jeff Lang.
Float along on his melodic tendrils, and be uplifted by his refreshing vocals. This is one performer guaranteed to leave you with a contemplative smile.
“I don’t think Leroy is going to be just another ‘man with a guitar’ Australian export, and if you can catch him in a pub or club now, do it; he’s well worth his salt, and incredibly entertaining.”
– Liz Elleson, THE AU REVIEW
“A very good songwriter, dedicated to his craft…Leroy’s the real deal.”- LIOR
