AM & Shawn Lee

AM & Shawn Lee is a collaboration between London-based multi-instrumentalist/producer Shawn Lee and Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter AM.

After listening to Lee's 2004 album Music and Rhythm: Ubiquity Studio Sessions, Vol. 1, AM contacted Lee and the duo quickly discovered a shared love of various '60s and '70s sounds, including Brazilian tropicalia, psychedelic-tinged soft rock, Italian film music, and more. A long-distance songwriting partnership developed online, with the musicians sending tracks and ideas back and forth. In 2011, AM & Shawn Lee released their debut full-length studio effort, Celestial Electric, on Thievery Corporation member Rob Garza's ESL (Eighteenth Street Lounge) label. Two years later, they returned with the '70s and '80s analog synth-infused La Musique Numerique. In 2015, AM & Shawn Lee released their third album, Outlines, which found them taking inspiration from the funky, atmospheric world of stock '70s U.K. library music recordings. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
