Leejay Leejay has been writing melodies and lyrics since around the age of ten, when he used to sing heartbreak songs like “Since I Fell for You” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You” before he knew what heartbreak was—generally while out hunting for lizards or treasure up at the water tower or in the woods near home. (He was also very fond of tunes like “Wooly Bully” and “Louie Louie,” so it wasn’t all bad.)  Leejay would like one day to write some songs half as timeless and inspirational as those by his many musical heroes, folks like Hank Williams, Irving Berlin, Hank Cochran, Boudleaux Bryant, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Ian Tyson, Willie Nelson, The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Webb, John Prine, Gram Parsons, Bob Marley, Neil Young, Richard Thompson, Cat Stevens, Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett, and Bruce Springsteen.  In the meantime, he invites you to have a listen to his best efforts on the CDs Switchtracks, Dust Bowl Soul, and Dog Heaven and he hopes you like some of them.  He writes: “folks, all you can do is your best, and then cross your fingers.  Find yourself some gifted players and a producer as good as Dick Neal. Hell: get the man himself if you can: he’s the real deal.”
