While I have enjoyed the ample time for retrospection and self-discovery during this year’s quarantine, its time for me to come out of my music cave. I’ve got some material I’ve been playing with over the past few months and I’m excited to share it with everyone soon!
But until those pieces are ready for release, I wanted to re-introduce myself and share some of my past work.
Hi! I’m Stanford Lee and I’m a singer, songwriter, and musician based in Marietta, Georgia. I’m not from here though. I grew up in California which is where I learned about and fell in love with the Bakersfield sound. Waylon Jennings, Dwight Yokham, and Merle Haggard are some of my personal heroes and I hope to bring back the glitz and glam of the Gram Parson’s nudie suit era.
I wasn’t always pursuing country music. I’ve dabbled in a lot of different musical styles. Ashcraft was my band during my Goth period. The album is still available on Amazon if you want to check it out. While it was entertaining to explore darker subjects, Goth and alternative music just wasn’t doing it for me.
So I went solo for a while. Jammed with a lot of great musicians and eventually made my way back to my roots. I played with some local bluegrass artists and eventually started a 3 man band, Trainchasers. That’s when I realized that country western was truly my thing.
Trainchasers didn’t last long. One of the guys had a huge opportunity in Nashville and took it. I do still have plans to revive the group at some point though. Until then, I’ll just keep on doing me.
Since going solo I’ve released a few singles, “Back on the Honkeytonk Road”, “Country Western Band”, and my most recent “Elon and the Hotrod Race.” Elon was released with a special animated music video which I’m super proud of. I even did a fun little Christmas number called “Awkward Christmas.”
So that’s me in a nutshell. Obviously there’s a lot more to me, but you’ll just have to stay tuned to find out more.
