Bart van der Lee




Usually, Bart van der Lee is quite a happy guy. However, from a musical perspective things are a bit different since he prefers minor chords and has a weakness for the dark side of life. The result of a merger between a giddy happy boy and a gloomy guy who digs into the deep caverns of the soul?

Raw, autobiographic texts sung by a deep, slightly grating voice and unpolished, honest music. Together with his olive green Gretsch, Bart plays a bewildering ode to real life. So far, he sang that ode in three albums, of which the last two were released by Snowstar Records, and in dozens of performances.
