  James Lee Stanley

James Lee Stanley was one of the very first artists we booked for our opening season in 2006-2007.  If you recall he surprised us with one of the most remarkable musical creations we have ever heard.

All Wood and Stones, his acoustic interpretation of The Rolling Stones’ music (created with friend and colleague John Batdorf) has been a favorite of ours since we first heard it.  He was here with Cliff Eberhardt for the premier of All Wood and Doors, their arrangements and acoustic showcase of music from The Doors.  And in 2015 he returned for a remarkable solo concert.

Tom Robbins, author of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues says, “We could say that James Lee is probably the last great undiscovered singer-songwriter in America.”

James Lee will be returning to Música Del Río for a solo performance on Saturday evening November 3.  One of the best descriptions of him is also the title of our favorite (and highly regarded) CD Freelance Human Being; and that he is.  We know of no artist who has written more songs than James Lee Stanley.

From the coffee houses of the 1970’s to some of the finest showcases of Americana music, James Lee has been regularly invited back before he can close his guitar case.  With over 20 albums of original material under his belt, James Lee Stanley has long been considered a singer/songwriter’s songwriter.

His remarkable ability as a vocalist and composer allow him to create truly great songs, each accompanied by his amazing guitar orchestrations.  When you couple this with his outrageously hilarious repartee, we will get one of the most entertaining concerts of this season.
