I wonder who he counts as a MAJOR influence?...........;)
Mmmmm....yeah,I wonder who??
From Lee's MySpace:
Influences Stevie Wonder, Glenn Hughes, Mica Paris, Philip Lynott ,Paul Rodgers, Steve Marriott,Steve Ellis, John Waite, Dan Reed Network Sounds Like Always been compared to Glenn Hughes
Aaahh,all is revealed
Now you know why Mel Galley has asked him to do vocals and bass in his band!
He's also a really nice guy.
Could this be another clone of
THE HUGHES QUINTUPLETS?
I saw the band Pride, that Lee sang for, play local pubs and clubs in the Cannock area a few times. The band's guitarist, Dave, is a good friend of mine and I have a copy of their CD. When I played it I kept thinking that Trapeze must be an influence, not just in the singing but in the playing. When I suggested this to Dave he said that he'd never heard Trapeze. Must be something in the water around here that makes people sing and play like this.
I have the Native Cain CD and would recommend it to any fans of GH - especially those who like the Hughes/Thrall album.
I like the singer and all the songs on this MySpace so I will have to get some of those projects mentioned.
The NATIVE CAIN Record is long deleted now but for all those who didn't know, It got Re-released & re-mastered in 2006 through Escape Music under the new guise of SURVEILLANCE.
The album is called ANGELSTATION Surveillance have now disbanded but have a myspace page.
Those of us who love Glenn's voice (:p) will LOVE Lee Small's new solo album Through The Eyes of Robert Lees.
I first heard Lee's voice on Tom Galley's Psychofantasy and actually thought it was Glenn on vocals; they both have a very similar style.
I've played the album constantly since I got it the other day. Check out some of the songs from the album on his MySpace profile at http://www.myspace.com/leesmall and let me know what you think.
No coincidence then, that Lee was to be the singer in Mel's band for the comeback gigs at the Tackeroo. Great voice, hope the record does well.
Thank you John,
I can't say how sorry I am we didn't get to do the planned shows, I so looking forward to them & I know how much they meant to Mel ..
We have all lost one of the best ever ...
"see you in my dreams" ...
Shirl, - you are a Star*, thanks for all your support dear x
Well on a Positive note, as Shirl mentioned ,I have this new record out, my first solo effort ever!,
It took a while getting it out, but I am proud of all of it,
If anyone feels like adding it to their collection,
It would be so appreciated,
take care, Lee
Anyone familiar with him? Check out this track:Small - The Captain's Quarters - YouTube[/ame]
I was impressed with how much he sounds like Glenn
That is indeed a great track.
It's from Lee's new album Jamaica Inn.
The album sounds in places like Glenn's album Blues and Trapeze.
Further worth to mention are Shine A Light and Voyager.
That last one is a cover from the band Gamma (Ronnie Montrose). One of my all time favourite tracks. It's staying close to the original.
All though I think the original is better, I love this one also.
Lee, that's awesome! Not only killer vocals, but that clean tone on the guitar is very nice. I have mentioned this before, brother, but if you ever need a guitar player in Texas and the States, I'm your man
