Lee Madrid
Abusing All Your Charms
Street 10.08
Lee Madrid = Sean Lennon + Noah Georgeson

As a solo artist, Madrid possesses what many lack. He’s got an ear for classics. It’s not always easy to entertain an audience with just a guitar, piano and buttery vocals. This album should be a lesson to other aspiring musical locals – it proves that simple can be beautiful. The addition of the trumpet in tracks “Accident Prone”, “Flopping Around” and “Nasty Weather” give Abusing All Your Charms the right amount of jazzy flavor, perfect for a laid-back afternoon. Madrid’s instrumental talent and songwriting are great examples of genuine work and a love for music. Plus, he did all his album artwork. It never hurts to multitask.
