Broseph E. Lee consists of seven musicians who strive to bring live entertainment through popular classic and contemporary music while maintaining a collective goal of creatively writing and performing their own original songs. The band was first created by Brock Jones and Russell Orrill in the small town of Beardstown, IL. Over time the Brosephs have grown locally with the additions of Chris Yost and Ebby Erickson, as well as from afar by bringing in St. Louis area musicians: Sean Halbrook, Brooks Boyer, and Aaron Larsen.

While maintaining a busy schedule of shows in Illinois, Broseph E. Lee has recently worked with Avery Records to produce their first original 6 song EP. The approach through the writing process has come naturally with Brock Jones expressing his past experiences and country music roots through his acoustic guitar and catchy vocal melodies. A mix of vocal harmonies, as well as southern rock and jam-style instrumentation by Yost, Erickson, Orrill, Halbrook, Boyer, and Larsen have only elevated the stories told about long nights of drinking, family traditions, and small town central Illinois.
