Country Music Troubadours Matt Woods and Adam Lee Announce Tour: "Connoisseurs of the Lesser Things:" Fine Music and Good Times
KNOXVILLE, TN, January 24th, 2013 /The Digitel/ - Country music troubadours Matt Woods of Knoxville, TN and Adam Lee of Kansas City, MO come together on their "Connoisseurs of Lesser Things" tour, which will kick off February 16th at The Mill in North Charleston, SC and will make stops in the south and mid-west including Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Woods and Lee will also perform during the SXSW MidCoast Takeover Party held in Austin, TX from March 13th-16th. The tour will conclude March 20th.

For their upcoming tour, each will be playing solo sets (in most cases). Woods will be playing songs off his albums The Matt Woods Manifesto and Broken Strings & Beer Specials: An Acoustic Retrospective, as well as songs from his new record slated for release in Fall 2013. Lee will be performing songs from his full-length solo record due out in Fall 2013, songs from an EP specially released for this joint tour, and records with his band The Dead Horse Sound Company, When the Spirits Move Me and Ghostly Fires.
"Some folks call what I do Americana, but I have a hard time putting a label on things like that. A lot of my songs are very much based in classic country music while others are grounded in straight forward and greasy rock 'n' roll," Woods explains. "I write what is ready to come out and try to be as honest as I can about it."
"Up until the past two years, it's been straight-up honky-tonk country," Lee describes. "Lately, I've been focusing more on songwriting for my solo work, which is more along the lines of dark Americana with a healthy dose of swinging country."
