Accomplished songwriter who is not afraid to push himself as recently he disappeared to a remote cabin in the Scottish countryside, way up on the north-western tip of the coast to achieve his songwriting aims.
Nestled between starkly beautiful Highland countryside and the endless Atlantic ocean, Lee Endres spent three months working on his music.
Part of the songwriter's nomadic streak, the stint in the Highlands seemed to spur something within him, allowing him to self-analyse as never before.
New cut 'Flyleaf' is the result. Wonderfully sparse, the isolated nature of its composition creates a hushed, patiently introspective atmosphere.
Think shades of Elliott Smith at work here, Fleet Foxes or even Beck's 'Sea Change' - lilting, lilting acoustic guitar, addictive melodies and wonderfully poetic lyrics.
