Review by: Justyn Brodsky
An exercise in catchy, witty, and clever Country/Rock.
With influences ranging from Bob Seger to James Taylor, critically acclaimed Canadian Recording Artist, Russell Lee, hailing from the Manitoba landscapes of Winnipeg, has performed for thousands of fans, has released three well received albums, and has sustained a very reputable presence with a very bright future ahead as he continues to write, record, and perform.
His most recent album, What Do I Do, is a collection of very humble, catchy, well-written songs that showcases many positive angles of Lee‘s musicianship, and dynamic writing skills. The production value is exactly where it needs to be and never outdoes itself. From very integrated melodies with great use of keyboards, harmonicas, 3-part harmonies and impressive guitar work, What Do I Do is definitely an album that is impossible to go unnoticed.
When it comes to priorities as an artist, Russell Lee has everything down to a science. The first one being amazing song structures and writing techniques; melodies that stick in your head and a proper way to showcase his voice with the best musicianship to back it up, along with production value to tie it all together to give his songs a full sound that never leaves a stone unturned. It’s refreshing to hear an artist that truly puts his best foot forward with his music and absolutely knows where his strengths are, and how to present them properly.
We at Artist Reach recommend Russell Lee without hesitation, especially if eclectic Country-Rock is in your heart. You will be listening to him non-stop.
