Like a brushstroke across a canvas, Lee Watson’s songwriting sweeps through musical landscapes, warm and knowing.

For the better part of a decade, Lee wrote and performed as a founding member of Vancouver’s critically acclaimed The Breakmen. In this new solo project, he brings his influences in traditional music back home to his roots in rural Ontario, creating a collection of songs that evoke a sense of awe and reverence for the windswept pines and vast lakes of Ontario’s Hinterland.

Born in Owen Sound, Lee’s love for Canadian songwriters and the sound of music on vinyl was sparked by a childhood raised within arms reach of his father’s turntable.
