Lee Hazlewood was a maverick in the best sense of the word, living by his own rules during a long, fruitful and travelled career. He was writer of mega-hits for artists such as Nancy Sinatra and Duane Eddy, an inventive producer and a unique performer. He fathered the Countrypolitan genre with impeccable productions that ranged from cowboy minimalism to overblown brassy pop. He holds a special place in the hearts of billions, thanks to his talent for storytelling, distinctive laconic drawl and ability to write a damn good song.
Many people around the world are familiar with Lee’s songs, even if they don’t realise it. Responsible for tunes like ‘These Boots Are Made For Walkin’”, “Lady Bird”, “Sugar Town”, “Summer Wine”, “Some Velvet Morning” and “Rebel Rouser”.
His impact on modern music and generations of musicians is immeasurable, and Stu is no exception – Lee has been a remarkable inspiration for him. Best known for his global exploits with Dave Graney & The MistLY, as well as Kim Salmon & The Surrealists, Stu is a songwriter, performer and producer himself.
Along with Clare Moore (Moodists, Coral Snakes), Phil Collings (Surrealists) and Eduardo Miller (Love Brothers), give thanks to this man as the Stu Thomas Paradox present The Songs of Lee Hazlewood in two big sets of magnificent music.
