Hi, I'm new, but also old

Post by Leeee » Tue May 21, 2024 3:54 pm

Hi i'm Lee.
I've been a working/gigging singer/guitarist since I was 15. I never really went for anything big, I was too shy honestly. Had kids very young so happy to earn a crust playing pubs & clubs, still doing it at 51 and loving it more than ever. I did a few festivals and the odd big gig here & there, made an album when I was 23. Otherwise you'll find me in Central London usually 3 nights a week either yelling my head off playing GnR covers, or singing some reggae tunes. During the week I'm a handyman, fixing your tap or painting your living room.
Lockdown was actually a great time for me creatively. I wrote a ton of songs, many of which still unfinished, I hope to find some time this year to catch up and get them all out. Also did a lot of remote recording with friends and also people that I met through doing the recordings, I absolutely loved that and would love to do some more in the future!

Here's a little reggae tune I wrote recently and also another video singing my favourite GnR tune - one of the remote recordings I did with some friends during lockdown.

Good stuff, Lee - welcome to these public forums.
LIKEd your song "Think It Over"... good Classic Rock/Rockabilly ala Buddy Holly.
From an old looky-loo in The Peanut Gallery.
:? :D
PS: Mick Jagger, Keef Richards, Sir Paul, Ringo, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson - now THOSE GUYS qualify as 'also old'...
you got about 30 years more to go. :shock: :? 8-) :shock:

Haha cheers, I really hope so! Thanks for listening, I am a big Buddy Holly fan since I was a young boy. It's because of him that I wanted to learn how to sing & play.
Just had a listen to your "Sentimentalement Moi". Lovely start to the day, brilliant job!
