Robbie Lee:
Robbie Lee is a musician with an atypical path, swerving along the edges of various genres, instruments, and scenes. As an improviser, you may find him playing free noise or delicate drone, with baroque flute, contrabass recorder, sopranino saxophone, and other oddities. As a songwriter, you may see him performing as Creature Automatic, wielding guitar and keyboard in relentlessly jangly pursuit of three chords and the truth. Somehow he ties it all together, though not always at once. He has performed with musicians as diverse as Glasser, Howling Hex, and Cass McCombs; but also Mary Halvorson, Che Chen, and Brian Chase, while always bringing along his signature style and individual voice.
