Lee Gates and the Alabama Cotton Kings
Music Maker Relief Foundation - LG100
Another "unknown" starving artist with buckets of talent, found and fostered by the Music Maker Foundation, Lee has an unrelenting drive to his guitar work and a voice built for the blues.
This album, Lee's first, was recorded in three hours and has the "get down and get it" feel of a live set. If you enjoy an artist that can leave you breathless and wishing the album had twice as many tracks, this is for you. If you're in the Milwaukee area, you can catch up with Lee and the group live at local venues.
