Lee will take you deep into the heart with this melancholy ballad of kindness and pain which will surely satisfying indie purists. Her sound can be characterised by its lullaby-like melody, haunting vocal style and lyrical artistry.  Her songs will surely find their way on TV shows with those heartbreaking moments.
