Kevin Lee & The Kings: Chicago, Illinois
Kevin Lee & The Kings, Singer-Songwriter
Chicago, Illinois
With three decades of storied history, acclaimed singer/songwriter Kevin Lee continues to inspire generations as one of the best big-hook, power pop songwriters in the business. Flanked by his incredible band, The Kings, Lee recently released, Sticks & Stones, on Sigus Records. With an infectious sound of modern pop/rock packed with big guitars, indelible hooks, and soaring vocal harmonies, the songs deliver the kind of car-radio magic that turn winter nights into summer bright. Tracks like “On Top of the World,” “Tell the Truth,” the Tom Petty-esque, “All We Have Is Now,” and the ultra-catchy “Hold On to Yourself Tonight,” remind you of why you loved rock and roll in the first place. 

A former MCA recording artist, Lee is a veteran solo artist with arena-sized credentials that include tours with Cheap Trick, REO Speedwagon, Lou Gramm, Matthew Sweet, and Pearl Jam. Signed to MCA in 1992 with his band, the Lonesome City Kings the band’s debut single "Standing in the Line of Fire" was a huge success at radio, eventually landing in an NBA All-Stars Video and the Golden Globe nominated movie A Dangerous Woman, which starred Debra Winger, David Strathairn, and Barbara Hershey and featured child actors, Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Sticks & Stones marks his third album with The Kings, following 2013’s Breakout (2013), which was voted one of the best of the year by Illinois Entertainer, and 2010’s Dusk Till Dawn, whose signature anthem, “Time Won't Stand Still,” hit #1 at WMWX in Cincinnati, Ohio.
