Lee Rocker Releases The Cover Sessions EP

Lee Rocker: The Cover Sessions EPFormer Stray Cats bassist Lee Rocker has just released The Cover Sessions, a six track EP of songs he grew up listening to ranging from the Beatles’ “Come Together” to the Allman Brothers hit, “Ramblin’ Man.”

In an interview with OC Weekly, Rocker explained how the project came about.

“The story behind [the] EP is that over the past few years, I became really interested in acoustic instruments,” he said. “I started collecting banjos, dobros, ukeleles, an auto harp, folk guitars, harmonicas, accordions, and all kinds of percussion stuff like a washboard and spoons… I went in the recording studio and just started messing around with all these instruments. I found myself gravitating to songs I heard on AM radio as a kid.”

He also explained the album isn’t “a rockabilly record and it’s not really a country record, but it’s something in between.”
