The Concierge Questionnaire
Great Britain’s own Lee MacDougall, a singer-songwriter, who hails from Grimsby, a small historical town on the east coast of England, is now out on the road, having kicked off a US and European tour from London. After studying music composition and production in college, Lee managed to make ends meet by working at the local fish-processing factory, only quitting when a coworker stole his shoes and forced Lee to walk home barefoot. Broke and living at home, MacDougall spent the next three weeks locked in his room, writing and demoing songs on an old tape recorder before sending them out to London labels. With a distinct English influence, steeped with the storytelling songwriting of the Beatles, Kinks and Rod Stewart, his material hit home and garnered favorable reviews and serious interest. Inspired by Nirvana and Tom Petty, Lee’s personal lyrics, such as those found on his EP “If Walls Could Talk,” are aimed at connecting directly with a live audience. It is a skill that he has successfully parlayed into a significant Internet fan base, and has propelled MacDougall on extensive international tours – perhaps to a venue near you!
