Lee-Ann Lovelace
Ep 9. “Can’t Find My Way Home”

Lee-Ann joins talented guitarists Phil Beach and Jim McKeeman for this week’s sweet bit of basement music. Jim McKeeman’s rockin’ his Martin while Phil plays a custom-made (from scratch, ladies and gentlemen) guitar only a true craftsman like him could create. He’d make these guitars available for sale if he could ever part with them once they’re born! :o )

 

 

Lee-Ann Lovelace has been a professional singer and songwriter since late 2004. As soon as she joined her first band, she hit the ground running and has become known as one of the busiest and most in-demand singers/collaborators in Connecticut. Though you can feel the soul and power of her voice on recordings of a wide variety of genres, there is nothing like experiencing the energy and soul she gives when you are in the same room. She has performed throughout New England and on local CT radio with a multitude of bands and musicians, and she has extensive studio experience. She sang with local bands Veloray, FBI (Funk Brokers, Inc), Plastica, The No Cheez Orchestra and the Rubber City Blues Band, almost all of which won local awards such as The Hartford Advocate’s Grand Band Slam for listeners choice. Lee-Ann regularly performs with her CT-based, blues-rock band Bad Rooster, and also various hard-hitting musicians like George Lesiw, Philip Beach, Jim McKeeman and Paul Gabriel for fill-in gigs for a very busy schedule. She has opened for Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, Orleans, and for Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer Ronnie Spector

 

After David C. Lovelace got learning how to walk out of the way, he got to work learning how to play music on a tantalizingly colorful Lowrey organ. From 1974 on, little Dave played radio hits by ear, employing the organ’s “Magic Genie” auto-chords and bossa nova drumbeats. He eventually graduated to his first keyboard in the synth-tastic mid-’80s, and it was only a matter of time until the one keyboard multiplied into a massive pile of digital and analog cacaphony. And when Dave strapped on his first keytar, it may as well have been a straightjacket. Dave has been terrifying family, friends, animal life, and (mostly) his neighbors ever since in a wide variety of bands & independent projects over the years. Much of his music found a global audience through online media including YouTube, including a “1980s Keyboard Solo Medley” which will go down in history as “one of those internet things.” All of Dave’s music, art & animation can otherwise be found online at www.umop.com
