Two touring artists from the Americana music are teaming up for a special event -- Nashville's Eric Brace and Cayucos-based Phil Lee. We've featured Phil in concert several times. He and Eric have toured the world together.
Phil Lee is, according to Glen Starkey of New Times, "a wiry little knife thrower and dog lover who unleashes a caustic barrage of his by turns hilarious and poignant songs." Another writer says, "Brash and literate and full of one-liners. He’s like the love child of Bob Dylan and Joan Rivers.” Native of North Carolina, longtime Nashvillian, Phil Lee spent a couple of decades playing drums, driving trucks, dumping motorcycles, hauling equipment, stealing hearts, eluding the authorities and raising Cain. Then he recorded several albums and toured the world. More at http://www.philleeone.com/
A Grammy-nominated producer, the front man of the acclaimed roots-rock band Last Train Home, half of a duo with songsmith Peter Cooper, and founder of East Nashville indie label Red Beet Records, Eric Brace is a prolific and admired artist. A former music journalist for the Washington Post, Brace relocated to Nashville in 2003 for a full-time musical life. With Last Train Home, he has released eight records and one live concert DVD. After moving to Nashville, Brace began touring and recording with duo partner Peter Cooper, and the pair has three much-lauded albums to their credit. You Don’t Have To Like Them Both (2008) was a #1 album on the Freeform American Roots Chart, Top Five on the Folk Chart, and Top Ten on the Americana chart.
