Lee Aaron is on a roll. The award winning, songwriter, producer and Canadian vocalist blazed back onto the rock scene in 2016 (after a ten year hiatus to raise her family) with a wealth of original material and more firecracker energy than artists half her age. She’s since produced 6 new releases, including a ‘live’ CD/DVD, with “Elevate” being the latest and possibly coolest addition to this renewed chapter in her illustrious career.
“Elevate” was written during the Covid lockdown, but rather than allowing that isolation to push the band into a negative place, Lee booked a studio lockout for the fall of 2021.
“Elevate” contains ten original tracks steeped in what has become Aaron’s signature sound: big guitar hooks, powerful, bluesy vocals, rich melodies and harmonies and just enough sassy attitude to tip the scales. T
Aaron has always been known for digging a little deeper with her lyric content and “Elevate” is no exception.
“Elevate” was recorded in Aaron’s traditional fashion: live off the floor with her crack band, Sean Kelly (guitar), Dave Reimer (bass) and John Cody (drums) at the Armoury Studios in Vancouver with the finishing touches recorded at the band’s home studios. After forging a strong friendship and working relationship with Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams) on the last album, he once again teams up with Lee and the band for “Elevate” as recording and mix engineer.
About “Elevate” Aaron explains: “I think it’s a shame how social media can divide good people. Analytics guarantee everyone has their own special ‘feed’ and you’re never hearing a different perspective – it polarizes people. ‘Elevate’ is about not buying into that trap, it’s about choosing to lift each other up.”
As the title track inspires: “It’s not too late to re-create, let’s celebrate, let’s Elevate – Let’s Elevate”!
“Elevate” will be released on November 25th 2022, via Metalville Records.
