A country-influenced singer-songwriter from Minneapolis, Frankie Lee just released his debut album, American Dreamer. His father was a musician who died in a motorcycle accident when Lee was 12; Lee inherited his dad’s record collection, as well as musician friends who would keep the boy out late listening in the bars.

After years in Nashville and Austin, Frankie Lee came home and made a new album, American Dreamer, that rings with authenticity. Hear two of its songs on this page.
