Lee Tyler Post- Emancipate Review

Artist: Lee Tyler Post
Title: Emancipate
Style: Rock / Soul / Blues 
Rating: 8.9 out of 10
By C.W. Ross
Lee Tyler Post takes his blend of music that he refers to as, 'Rock 'N' Soul' on the road as a modern day musical Troubadour.
Currently Lee resides in his hometown of San Diego, CA.  But over the past 5 years he's spent a lot of his time on the road performing between150-200 shows a year while driving between 25,000-40,000 miles each year getting to the shows.
If you're lucky enough to catch him performing live get ready for a real performance. Lee's marathon live performances have been known to last sometimes from 2-3 hours without any breaks.
Lee also has a heart of gold often lending his talents to charitable causes, Lee has performed at benefits for M.A.D.D., the M.S. Society, and The Ramona Cancer Resource Center, The Victory Junction Gang Camp, Bikers Who Care/Toys for Tots, and The Heartland Psychosocial Rehabilitation Center in San Diego, CA.
Lee's release Emancipate is a collection of 10 songs that deal with the subjects of love, relationships, redemption and hope. These 10 songs are some of the most emotion drenched that I've ever heard. Lee's music comes straight from the heart.
Lee's songs blend elements of folk, rock, soul and blues to achieve his end sound.  His music has a raw edge to it and isn't over polished. He says that he prefers and, 'old school' approach so this release was recorded using a 1970 MCI Analog Machine.
His music is not over complicated with the guitars, bass, percussion and small touches of harmonica used in the songs staying in the musical background while the song vocal's and lyrics taking center stage.
If your a fan of artist like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, John Hiatt, and Van Morrison then you'll quickly become a fan of Lee Tyler Post' music.
Emancipate is one well done release that will find itself spending a lot of its time in your CD player!
