Down The Lees is the brainchild of multi instrumentalist, Laura Lee Schultz, releasing studio albums and playing solo shows since 2005. Caustic, sincere and cutting like a knife, this is the way she delivers her music. Add to that a bit of DIY and you got a class act that keeps evolving.
"...I went to see their CD release show last weekend, it wasn't totally on purpose as I was mostly there to see the two other bands on the bill and felt as though I was in one of those win/win situations with Down The Lees... if they were good; great... if they weren't so good, at least I could use their set to step outside for a smoke, buy some beer, go to the bathroom and yak with my fellow concert goers in my usual self absorbed too cool for school hipster way. Let me say that I didn't smoke, pee or talk during their set. Well, that's not entirely true, I did talk to my buddy... and we were saying stuff like, "this band is fucking great". If you like where Slint was coming from, you're gonna really like Down The Lees." - Red Cat Records
