Blues singer Dubh Lee’s latest single ‘Carousel’ is now out on all major streaming platforms and is available to purchase on Bandcamp, iTunes and Amazon.
Dubh Lee occupies a unique space between folk and blues and her latest single ‘Carousel’ is a raucous blues-rock tune in which the singer cries out in loneliness and distress. It deals with using partying as a coping mechanism and features a driving chromatic main riff, fat bass guitar, and unhinged lead guitar work. It was recorded in The Meadow recording studio in Co. Wicklow and the singer enlisted the help of David Griffin from New Secret Weapon to record the bass and drums for the track.
In the past Dubh Lee has performed at events all over Ireland such as Electric Picnic and the Ruby Sessions, along with more intimate shows opening for acts such as Jack Lukeman and Bagatelle, and she supported jazz band Jimmy’s Cousin on their Irish tour in 2019. From folk beginnings she has transitioned from performing solo with an acoustic guitar to performing heavier material with a bassist and a drummer in 2020, now playing energetic live sets as a power trio featuring songs with blues and garage rock influences. In 2020 she performed at a number of live-streamed and hybrid events, such as the Hotpress Lockdown Sessions, Transmission festival, Laters with Griff and the Five Lamps Arts festival. Her debut EP will be released in spring of 2021, and in the meanwhile a mesmerizing music video for ‘Carousel’ is set to appear in December 2020.
