Bryan LEE - Memphis Bound 1993

Bryan LEE - Memphis Bound 1993


A longtime staple of New Orleans' famed Bourbon Street club circuit, blues guitarist Bryan Lee was born in Wisconsin in 1945; inspired by B.B. King, Albert King and others, his Midwest upbringing also resulted in a distinctively Chicago-styled sound which his long stay in the South did little to erase. Billed variously as "The Braille Blues Daddy" and "The Blind Blues Daddy," Lee first surfaced in New Orleans in 1983, quickly becoming a favorite of tourists in the city's French Quarter and regularly playing live at least six nights a week; he made his solo debut in 1991 with The Blues Is..., followed in 1993 by Memphis Bound. After 1995's Heat Seeking Missile, Lee issued 1997's Live at the Old Absinthe House Bar: Friday Night, an ideal souvenir for the many patrons of his club dates. Crawfish Lady followed in the spring of 2000, and Six String Therapy in fall 2002.
