In the heart of Birmingham, Alabama, a remarkable story of resilience, artistry, and passion is about to be unveiled. At 63 years old, Lolly Lee is set to release her self-titled debut album on February 23rd, 2024. This album promises to be more than just a collection of songs; it stands as a beacon of hope and an emblem of perseverance for artists everywhere.

Lolly Lee’s journey to her first album is nothing short of inspiring. Overcoming personal trials, including the challenges of motherhood and loss, Lee has shown that it’s never too late to pursue your dreams. Her music—a soulful blend of rock and country—echoes the experiences she’s lived through, making her debut not only an artistic endeavor but also a deeply personal one.

The album was crafted in the esteemed Admiral Bean Studio with producer Anthony Crawford—a long-time friend and Neil Young bandmate at the helm. Crawford’s expertise combined with Lee’s raw talent has resulted in a sound that is both authentic and compelling. The addition of vocal powerhouse Savana Lee (Crawford’s wife) brings an additional layer of depth to the project.

With 11 tracks that explore themes of love, loss, and life in rural Alabama, Lolly Lee’s self-titled debut is poised to captivate listeners with its heartfelt lyrics and emotive vocals. The lead single “Great Crusade,” which will premiere soon alongside its video counterpart, offers a glimpse into the powerful narrative woven throughout this highly anticipated release.

The album isn’t just about showcasing Lee’s musical prowess; it also serves as an affirmation of her indomitable spirit. Ralph Molina from Neil Young’s Crazy Horse band described her as “an underestimated-underdog-real-deal-rock-and-roll artist,” highlighting how her journey resonates with those who have ever felt overlooked or undervalued.

To celebrate the release, Lolly Lee will embark on a tour across several notable venues starting on February 23rd—the same day as the album launch—with performances at The Front Porch in Lillian AL, Stinky’s Bait Shack in Santa Rosa Beach FL, Field Day Music Festival in Tallahassee FL, followed by shows at The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville TN among others.

This colored vinyl edition mastered by Eric Conn at Independent Mastering adds another layer of anticipation for what promises to be one of the year’s most engaging releases. This album not only marks the culmination of Lee’s lifelong dream but also signifies her arrival on the music scene—an underdog no longer.

For fans eager for new sounds infused with sincerity and soulfulness, “Lolly Lee” offers something genuinely special. It stands as proof that true passion can transcend any obstacle—and that it’s never too late for anyone to leave their mark on the world.

As we await this groundbreaking debut from an artist who embodies strength and creativity in equal measure, we’re reminded that great music often comes from places least expected. Lolly Lee may have taken longer than some to reach this point in her career but make no mistake—she is here now ready to share her voice with those willing to listen.
