Owl & A Suit Tree With Lemons is Patrick Lee''s thirteenth proper album. It was named by a three-year old girl for whom Patrick''s wife was a nanny. The lead-off track, "Hands In", is in current rotation on Sirius radio worldwide. The record moves through the warm soul of "Westwood" into the polyrhythmic drum workout "My Drummer", then enters a world of joyful strings and choirs ("Lens Flares"), reversed-piano pop ("Speeches"), and aggressive post-rock-hop-stop-drop-and-roll ("What About You And I").
Patrick Lee is exceedingly tall and handsome and has been the latter since birth. He was a pretty strict vegetarian until recently. He studied jazz piano at the University of Colorado at Boulder and enjoys watching Charles Barkley swing a golf club.
As well as writing, recording, and producing over a dozen albums himself, Lee also founded the noisy Colorado funk bands the Analog Quartet and Doctor X, and is currently one-half of indie-rock monolith The Beebs. And when he’s not conquering the electro-hip hop-dance scene, Lee still finds time for solo and ensemble work in the Denver jazz scene.
While classically trained, it''s easy to see the influences of jazz, hip-hop, and indie rock in Lee''s works. Over the span of his lengthy discography we hear samples of instructional videos, soul singers, classic jazz horns, and popular cartoons from our childhood - all the while, his infectious beats and clever playing mold a soundtrack for the world around us.
Patrick Lee is a very nice guy, but he probably bets on sports more than your whole family combined.
