Lee MacDougall

For the last few years Lee MacDougall has travelled the world with an old suitcase in hand and a battered guitar on his back. He has played music everywhere from Alabama to Aachen, including raucous gigs at famous venues such as LA’s Hotel Cafe and NYC’s Bitter End, as well as festivals such as SXSW and Hard Rock Calling in London’s Hyde Park.

Independently supporting himself on the road, and often crashing on sofas and floors while travelling more than 50,000 miles, Lee played hundreds of unique shows, collecting tales and hangovers along the way. His music has taken him to places a boy from Grimsby should never see. There have been performances in hotel rooms in Vegas, millionaire’s mansions in the Hollywood Hills – and who could forget the time he was asked by 15 cheerleaders to put on a show in a Jacuzzi? Certainly not Lee.

Opening shows and tours for the likes of Paolo Nutini, Train, and Jamie Lawson, after a club shut down, Lee and his music would often carry on regardless, often staying up all night, often busking till dawn.

These experiences became stories, and these stories became songs. Once back in London, Lee met up with his old friend, producer Jim Lowe. Jim was fresh from No.1 success producing British band Stereophonics and was looking for some new music. After several large gins and confessions of all their sins it was decided: they would team up over the summer to record Lee’s debut album.

Featuring 10 songs and 10 true stories, as well as a guest appearance by The Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock on bass guitar, “Busk Till Dawn” is everything you would want from a modern British guitar record of instantly memorable lyrical pop.
