“Lee Bob is a country gentleman with imdi-rock flavor” – NPR Music

Lee Bob & The Truth is a rock & roll band from the San Francisco, CA. Lee Bob calls the music “future blues”. Their new album – The Light – was recorded in a handful of days at the legendary United Recordings in Los Angeles and mastered by Bernie Grundman. The 100% analog record never touched a computer. The emphasis is on direct & emotive songs and the interplay of musicians in live performance.

The band teams singer-songwriter Lee Bob with guitarist Steve Suzuki Wyreman (who has played with Richard Ashcroft) and bassist Josh Lippi (Darondo, Alice Russell). Joining the band in various configurations on record and stage are Joe Bagale on drums, Nate Mercereau on guitar, Derek Taylor on drums and Ben Schwier on piano and organ.
