Samuel C. LEES endorsing the BLADE RH-2

Samuel C Lees has been a professional guitarist since the age of 16.  Over the last 25 years his musical journey has seen him working alongside many artist, absorbing and mastering many styles of music.  Browse the web site and you will find original material in the style of rock, rock blues, jazz and… well just about anything that inspired those finger tips to play guitar.

Samuel’s journey started when he packed up his guitar and ran off to Wales to play guitar for Ray Phillips of Budgie.  With only one week’s notice to the first tour date; Samuel had a job to get mum and dad on board with this project. ‘The Apprentice’ toured all over the UK with Budgie learning his trade and quickly building a reputation as a guitar player that can get the job done.

Yet, all good things must come to an end and Samuel came home with tales to tell and a desire to form his own band and work on his own projects. Projects like Texas Flood, inspired by the playing style of SRV, or The Washington Lees Experiment, a successful collaboration with Steve Tate, one of the UK’sexperienced session drummers and, of course, the Samuel C Lees Band. Special times that enabled him to tour with artist like Jack Bruce, Robben Ford or open for Joe Bonnamassa, Walter Trout, Robin Trouwer and Yngwie J Malmsteen.

Also amazing is the fact that guitarist and original member Steve ROTHERY has been playing his Blade R-4, RH-4 and Texas guitars for over 20 years. Needless to say that we are proud to be part of the sound of this great band!
