I recently started listening to Lee-Leet, who is a Poland-based solo artist. Her newest (and third) album, which came out in November, is called ďLeave it BehindĒ. You can preview the album at http://bit.ly/LeeLeet-LeaveItBehind. She plays the piano, produces and publishes her own music. If your musical tastes include artists like Florence and the Machines, Bjork, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Evanescence, Within Temptation, PJ Harvey, Bat for Lashes or Porcupine Tree, you will thoroughly enjoy listening to her.
Her music is a form of art rock, with progressive and avant-garde influences. In her lyrics, she talks about emotions, difficult relationships, love, spirituality, metaphysics, disappointment, hope and the quest for the intangible. Lee-Leet is for people who are seeking transcendence in art and who are interested in sharing the emotional experience it conveys.
Lee-Leet is an example of how independent artists can reach out to their audiences through the Internet, thus bypassing record labels. Sheís brought to you by her fans from all over the world who financed her current European tour via SellaBand music website.
Oh, and BTW, the title song made it to the No. 3 spot on the Polish rock charts at Antyradio in its first week. Check out the video for the title track at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEus4Rh4dfU. As a result, Lee-Leet was pointed out in a press article, arguing that the era of major record labels is over, and the onset of a new era, in which independent artists reach out to their audience through the Internet, is happening presently.
