Album Notes
Review of Emancipate
by Frederick Leonard of The San Diego Troubadour

Inside of the first 30 seconds of listening, Emancipate is already one of my favorite records! Here are ten beautiful gems in the form of expertly rendered songs sung by a guy with one of those voices that burns so sweetly from the spirit within - that place where God and sex share the same space.

Post's big, big urgent voice is parked somewhere between the rough growls of Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) and the soulful pleas of Eddie Kendricks (Temptations) whom we all know, knew, and came to love. With a raw but disciplined voice, he takes manly charge of every note he encounters, spinning his way through this masterful CD.

The components are simple. A voice. A coupla guitars. Some bass and a little percussion. There's no high-tech wizardry here. There are no existentially long solos. It's not too long. Most impressively, there are no reservations in its delivery. It is quite simply, honest. Even in its quietest moments the music speaks loudly in its own confidence and condition without begging for attention for attention's sake.

Post has deployed the instincts of Simeon Flick (guitars, bass, percussion) and Andy Machin (production and percussion) at Big Fish Studios. Flick and Machin's contributions are equally impressive in that they offer smart changes and subtle embellishments while clearing the way for this lion to roar. Often times rockers start jamming away until the mix is drunk with cacophony, since that's what they know or think their supposed to do. And while that scenario usually strives to add personality, or "popability," it most often dilutes it. This is not that kind of record, but rather it is a creation resulting from smart, innate, and heartfelt choices that seem to concern themselves with how strongly the material is written. I'd also like to say that these songs bear that magical quality where the music sounds like the words being sung, and vice versa. Further, Lee Tyler Post sings with ease. His triumph isn't so much that he finally sang it right, so much as that he's so willing and so capable to sing so nakedly honest.

Review of Emancipate
by Billy Jones of IdleHandsMag.com (North Carolina)

In the letter that came with the CD Lee Tyler Post mailed to me he mentioned that this CD was recorded on a 16 track, 2 inch Analog machine with zero digital corrections-- you know, old school. The tone of his letter seemed to be that he was concerned that I might not wish to review a CD built on ancient technologies, but fact is: this is exactly what I'm looking for.

Lee has paid his dues in the record business, having crossed the country beginning in Austin, Texas, moving to Nashville, then California before returning to Nashville where he currently resides. A veteran of years spent touring the west, Midwest, and southwest, Lee has developed a clear voice capable of winning hearts and souls both young and old. His music is reminiscent of old school Southern Rock without the pain of electric guitar solos that pierce your ears and stay with you for days thereafter.

Lee Post is the solo singer/songwriter, the type of guy who finds his own way, blazes his own trail. Oh sure, you'll hear many familiar influences in the music he plays and the songs he writes, but you'll always know it's his alone. The guys will sing along and the girls will melt. When he walks off the stage, hearts will be broken, destined to suffer until his return.

Rock and blues based, Lee's music has been described as follows:

"...Throw the imagio of Johnny Cash, the vocal clarity of Edwin McCain, and Dylan-esque lyrics, and somewhere in the beat-- you'll find Lee..." -Michael Shear, New York Overview

"...Lee Tyler Post: from the heart of Texas. Bluesy, rock oriented, folk inspired, soulful, unique, and just plain cool..." -Gary Hays, owner Hobo Joe's, Nashville, Tennessee.

This is the type of music that talks to your soul. Acoustic guitar based, rock style ballads that tell the story of your own life as if Lee had spent his life writing your life. It's songs about falling in love and the price you pay. As a matter of fact, The Price You Pay is the title of one of Lee's songs, a bluesy, hard hitting ballad about loosing someone you love.

Lee lists among his influences; John Hiatt, Tom Waits. Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Otis Redding, the Allman Brothers, and Don Henley. And you'll hear them when you hear Lee Tyler Post. On his website, LeeTylerPost.com, Lee lists numerous upcoming tour dates including several in my home state of North Carolina as well as one in my hometown-- I think I'll try and catch him live. You should too. Billy Jones of IdleHandsMag.com
Review of Emancipate by Justin Scro
Cashbox Magazine

Folk troubadour Lee Tyler Post brings his ragged tales out into the open on Emancipate. With a deep gravelly voice, Post can dig deep, but what separates him is that he can take that low voice and let it soar when it needs to. With “Vacant” Post shows us how his realistic spirit can sometimes give way to bursts of unforeseen optimism. Singing to his wife, Post is as sincere as it gets in the music business, letting her know “I will be waiting for you”.

While it is not a new concept in music, it is the intensity that Post brings to “Vacant” that keeps it fresh and entertaining. On “Comfort Street” Post is more relaxed than normal and lets the music hang in the back while his voice takes the song to delicate heights. It is Post’s voice and storytelling abilities that keep Emancipate from being a typical folk experience.

There is no better example of what Lee Tyler Post is capable of than on “Miles From Home”. Here Post is not afraid to have an electric guitar come out of nowhere and rip into the scenery. One of the most upbeat moments on Emancipate, “Miles From Home” is the perfect mesh of folk and rock and roll.

Closing Emancipate with its longest track, Post takes us through the journey of a life gone by. Again, it is Post’s storytelling and voice that prevail, making “Price You Pay” and Emancipate a emotional journey through one man’s pain and perspective.
Review of Emancpiate by Virginia Debolt

"Lee Tyler Post is a 2003 addition to the Austin scene, and he's an outstanding addition at that. For one thing, he's a very good singer. Post has a voice that can jump from refined polish to raw emotion and back without breaking a sweat the way Phoebe Snow skips from octave to octave. Post also racks up points for being a good songwriter. He seems to move around a lot, but if he can be persuaded to stay in Austin, he's a keeper!

Emancipate is his fourth release. It is an easy rocking, mostly laid back album with many of the tunes using simply acoustic guitar backing. Some of the songs have a full band with drums and electric guitars. Getting a sample of both sides of Post's talents makes me think he could rock the night away in a noisy club and hold his own quite well, but he would also be terrific in a quiet and intimate setting where people are into listening. His vocal talents really shine on "Miles from Home" and "When It's Over" on emancipate, but the CD really doesn't contain a single song that isn't good.

Looking at his album cover art, where he favors long coats and Western hats, I got the impression he was a country singer, but emancipate is firmly planted in the pop/rock or acoustic/rock sound. He's worth checking the club listings for and getting out to see." ~ Virginia Debolt of MusicAustin.com

Emancipate!Vibrant,alive, and just damn good. the songs on this cd make ya feel alive an leaves you wanting more.


I'm an independent producer with years of listening to musicans and/or vocalists. I can't say enough about Lee's talent. I have all LTP's CD's but this by far is my favorite. No one should pass up the opportunity to hear his songs.
He is a true artist in every sense of the word.

benita coover

Just pure magic!
Beautiful, haunting, inspiring...Lee is one of the most talented musicians out there. Every song on this CD is a blend of magic melody, deep lyrics and wonderful voice. My favorite one is Thunderclap. You just have to have this CD in your collection!

debbie pace

the best overall cd that i have heard in a long time!!!

Serena Matthews

If you're a fan of music at ALL, then this CD should be on your "must have's" li
Track 4 all on its own is enough to motivate me to rate this CD 5 stars.. What a gorgeous acoustic song. The 2 minute sample isn't enough though, you need to hear the entire song on the CD to really get it! And then what a bonus, the rest of the songs on "Emanicipate" are breathtaking as well... the entire album is absolutely stunning and definitely worth the money spent on buying it. I would recommend this CD to anyone!~
