Arthur C. Lee : Presented by Sou’wester Arts
Rain-gaze surf songs from the PNW, echoing the experimental noise pop of Yo La Tengo, raw energy of Wilco, and the introspective soundscapes of Brian Eno.
Arthur C. Lee is a man who doesn’t ask for much. But early on, he knew what he wanted; to be with those who understood where he came from. To take in the silence of nature. And when he started playing the guitar at 12, he knew he wanted to play music that would affect people to their core. He remembers playing a simple etude on his guitar days before moving out of his childhood home, and his mother crying in the kitchen when hearing the song. Or the lovers dancing on the lawn as his band closed out the summer evening. And the echo in the room when he heard his father play Amazing Grace on the saxophone for the first time. This is what matters most to Lee, and is fully dedicated to his craft. His songs are a reflection of these simple moments that are sometimes the most meaningful.
