lee and chris in tandem again at LangLab
Lee Miles is a Fort Wayne songwriter who has previously been in the bands Dark Blonde Water and lo.automatic. His music brings to mind Dylan, Bonnie Prince Billy, and Songs:Ohia while wholly going off into his own territory. About his records others have said,
"a luminous singer/songwriter album, full of heart, brains, passion, love and hate. Miles' offering is masterful. It's also gutsy. And beautiful. And about 997 other things..."
Born in rural Missouri and living most recently in Chicago, Chris Darby is a folk musician whose true home is anywhere his music takes him. Though his singing sometimes reaches the ferocious roar of a territorial lion and other times sinks to the gentle whisper of a wise sage, his vocal style embodies a rare emotional honesty which captures the full range and depth of his life experience. Likewise, his dynamic guitar playing gracefully shifts between hypnotic arpeggios and the building crescendo of an oncoming train. With several albums from his folk band Them Damn Kids behind him, he hit the road as a solo artist in 2010.
