Songwriter Sleepy Joe Lee's debut cd, "Free Air", displays the myriad musical sensibilities that he brings to the table. From a progressive blues/rock to a mountain air. From a searing rocker to retro R&B. From a rockin' boogie to straight-up blues. With a rocked-up arrangement of a Queen Ida zydeco tune to boot. A uniquely American patchwork of musical styles.

"Free Air" follows the indie release, "Time For a New Dance Floor", by Ray and the Detonators, which features eight Sleepy Joe Lee tunes. In the neo-rockabilly tradition, Sleepy Joe Lee's writing blurs the lines between musical genres in a style that is all his own. With a guest appearance by saxaphonist Nancy Wright and backed by an in-the-pocket group of great musicians, Sleepy Joe delivers his tunes with an honesty and immediacy that only a songwriter can bring to his work.

When he's not on the road, the native West Virginian divides his time between his hometown of Huntington and Dayton, Ohio.
