James Lee Baker
JAMES LEE BAKER
An ideal artist for listening rooms and intimate venues, James Lee's songs are lyric and story forward with soaring vocals reminiscent of Cat Stevens or Ellis Paul and melodic finger-style guitar playing in the vein of John Gorka or David Wilcox. His songs center around themes of beauty in paradox, spirituality without dogmatic boundaries, the tender heart of the human condition, and the importance of family and virtue.
