Down the Lees
LL has been an active musician for over 25 years and was the recipient of an organ solo championship title from The Keyboard Academy of Music at age 11. She has been writing/producing/recording original music for over 15 years in bands such as Down the Lees, New Years Resolution, EP Island, The Skinjobs and Queazy. A career that sparked in the early ‘90s gave LL the opportunity to play with bands such as Xui Xui, Propagandhi, Sleater Kinney, Pansy Division, Minus the Bear and The Rose Chronicles. Being involved with and having 5 full length albums under her belt, LL welcomes the extra notch with Down the Lees’ The Guest Room. Having recorded and released 5 full length albums with some of Vancouver’s go-to engineers of the last two decades, she has engineered and co-produced much of her latest material at her own Off White House Studios.
The Guest Room was engineered and produced by LL in her home studio, Off White House Studios. Drums and additional bits here and there were recorded by Shawn Penner (Hot Hot Heat, Mother Mother) and boasts performances from members of Portico, Wintermitts and New Years Resolution. Songs roam from full on rock out epics ‘The Lullaby’ to acoustic ditties about love ‘On a Lie’ to poppy regretful friendships in ‘Talk is Not Cheap’.
