ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lee Whitaker Bio
Singer/Songwriter Lee Whitaker has held onto his "dream" for what seems like an eternity. In high school Lee played guitar for a local record label with Leon Huff (who later became one half of "The Sound of Philadelphia".) Some time later, Lee began collaborating with songwriter/musician Guy Scott when they wrote the "Spirit" theme for Cruise International. For many years their "Spirit" song opened and closed the show on all the Spirit boats around the country. Lee's main objective though, was to see his name on the "top 40" charts.
Lee knocked on record company doors in NYC and Nashville for quite some time before Grammy winner and Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame songwriter/producer Allen Toussaint called. Toussaint recorded two Whitaker/Scott songs and encouraged Lee to start performing his originals. That's exactly what Lee did!
For the past few years Lee has playing area coffeehouses and also in church with a contemporary Praise Band. Collaborator Guy Scott and Lee have just produced his first CD, "Songs from the Hourglass". Their diverse songs, which contain influences of country, folk, jazz, and pop, along with Lee's versatile voice, make for a great combination. Lee Whitaker's "dream" may soon turn into reality with the release of his CD in '05.

A teacher gone ROCKIN COWBOY, with a Dylan- Nelson twist
Lee Whitaker is a teacher gone ROCKIN COWBOY with his
soft lyrics, twangy rifts, and just some good ole
wholesome rock. With his dylan story telling and
willie nelson vibe, he goes into his basement in
Haddon Heights, NJ to come out with his debut album,
Songs from the Hour Glass.

**There are 11 songs and each one will speak
differently to you, but here are my highlights.**
track 3,"Doghouse,"
has a rockin bluesy feel to it that shows the light
side of Lee's writing.if this number does not get your
feet moving, don't bother. Your feet are broken.

track 4,"Erin Lynne,"
this sweet ballad is the song Lee wrote for and sang
to his daughter at her wedding. It is all that you
look for in a song, touching with a melody that could
bring tears to your eyes, if you are a father.

track 5,"Hourglass"
the song sums up the drive of Lee Whitaker the
songwriter and allows us, the listener to fall in love
with the hunt for self passion and believe in the
words of George Elliot, "It is never to late to be
what you might have been."

This is written by Roger Fay of IIIAmigos Productions
in association with In Yarde Records.

it gives me goosebumps
the whole cd is great. there is one song that gives me goosebumps. I was in the car listening to the music and his song Erin Lynne started playing. My whole body was overcome with goosebumps. that is a sign to me that the song will be a major hit. Today I listened again and I got so many goosebumps that I had to put a sweater over my shoulders. WOW!
