Three decades in, Kevin Lee is still at it, twenty years removed from his debut solo release Walk a Mile In My Shoes.
A veteran solo artist who has played in the past with bands such as Cheap Trick, REO Speedwagon, Lou Gramm, Matthew Sweet and Pearl Jam, his current endeavor is Kevin Lee & The Kings, a band that includes bassist/vocalist Patti Prendergast, who has toured internationally with Bitch and Tough Love, guitarist/vocalist Michael Kurtz, known for his work with Madfox, Bombs Away, and Half Bitten Moon, and drummer Erik Strommer, who came up on the East Coast in bands like Broken Arrows and Catfish Hunter.
Known for delivering “big hooks with chunky guitars,” the group’s most recent album, Stick & Stones, came out last year through Sigus Records.
In the midst of a full slate of fall shows throughout Chicagoland, Kevin caught up with Pure Grain Audio to reveal how he obtains his sweet signature sound.
What one piece of gear do you use to obtain your signature sound?
KL: An Orange Dual Terror guitar head with a single 12″ Vintage 30 Celestion speaker.
What about it makes it so important to you?
KL: I love Marshalls and used them for years but wanted to get a different sound so I bought the Orange and it’s all I’ve used since.
