Album Notes
It was a cold January day on a remote highway in Idaho. A young man stopped to help other travelers who were trapped in an overturned truck. As the man was working to rescue them, another car skidded off the road and struck him at highway speed. That man was Lee Penn Sky.
On that grey day, Lee almost lost his life and nearly lost his leg; what he did lose was his fear. Until this day, Lee had been a prolific songwriter but never stepped from behind the shelter of a band into the spotlight himself. The risk of stepping into the spotlight seemed to pale in comparison to nearly losing his life. Slowly as he healed he began to writing new songs and perform them himself. Healing from his severe injuries gave Lee time to figure out who he wanted to be as an artist, time to hone his skills and style.
Lee plays folk-oriented songs that span the Americana range, and are rooted in his Michigan childhood and the high-plains desert of Idaho, where he now resides. He has an affinity for Texan songwriters like Robert Earl Keen, Steve Earle, Willie Nelson, and the late great Townes Van Zandt. While these artists inform Lee Penn Sky’s music, he doesn’t emulate his heroes. Instead, his style has been described as Counting Crows meets Greg Brown meets "a milder, slightly more melodic and less manic version of Joe Cocker" to give you "Acoustic Soul." Prelude to Hindsight is Lee Penn Sky’s first offering as a solo artist. Several of his songs from this album have been played on folk radio shows through out the United States and his song "Michigan" is being used commercially by Michiganmittens.com.

What a gem this CD is. A perfect traveling companion! Mesmerizing.
Wow! What a gem this CD is. It’s a perfect traveling companion to take on a long road trip. The first thing that jumped out at me is the meaningful song writing, which lends itself to a lot of retrospection. The guitar work and mandolin are masterful throughout. I’d place the essence throughout somewhere between Counting Crows' “August and Everything After” and Beck’s “Sea Change.” Melodic Americana folk fusion at its finest.

Tracks like “Roll On” and “Best Will Show” are haunting; others like “Do As I Say” are catchy and uplifting. If Americana or Folk is your kind of music, this is the album to get in 2006. Highly recommend.

Very refreshing, and pure of heart
Lee Penn Sky's songs are truly from the heart, and they express an honesty and a purity that are only rarely found in the commercial music scene. There's a subtle irony in virtually every song, and it takes more than one listening to get close to the real meaning that's there. Bravo!
