David Lee comes from a small town in Tasmania called Exeter. He first burst onto the Country Music scene back in the 90’s. After quite a few years David gave it away professionally for 10 years because of other commitments in his life. He now has a home a family and his own successful business and has decided it is time to return, making a comeback in 2014 and has so many people right behind him.
David was born to be an entertainer and with the influence of one of Country Music’s true legends behind him Smokey Venn, who noticed a great deal of talent in David. David has performed at many shows and festivals around Tasmania. This includes winning the junior talent quest at Ulverstone at the age of 15 and the ‘Best new talent’ at Heybridge festival at the age of 17. More recently won ‘Best of the day award’ at the Birralee country music day in 2015. Just this year won runner up in the CCMA Talent quest in Tamworth in the ‘senior songwriters’ for the song ‘Soldier Boys’ that is on the new album. David would sure like to take it even further, as his love for real country music grows every year. ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM We are excited with the release of his second album ‘Birralee Lady’, produced here in Tasmania with 4 originals and 7 favourites. Smokey Venn wrote ‘Birralee Lady’ nearly 30 years ago for his lady Faye. David is honoured to be able to record it and it has been very well received. ‘Now I’m Singing Country’ is the next original, co-wrote with John & Ann Doherty. This is a great up beat country song with some old school picking, done by David Lee on his Ganjo. ‘Soldier Boys’ that won runner up in the CCMA Talent Quest in Tamworth 2017, was written by David and his brother Michael Lee. This song has be getting such a great response and we are very excited about it. Lastly ‘Empty Left Hand Seat’ was written by Michael “MICK” Lee (David’s brother) and is a wonderful Aussie bush ballad that is causing some tears. It is wonderfully written and the fans are enjoying this beautiful song. David has done his own harmonies on this album and all the acoustic picking and we hope you like it..
