Lee Bains


Lee Bains is a singer-songwriter and poet whose work is steeped in the American South. Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Bains’s songs are hopeful, but far from naive. On their fourth album, the 2022 record Old-Time Folks (Don Giovanni), Lee Bains + The Glory Fires deliver songs that mix the sounds of southern rock, gospel, folk, and punk to deliver stories of resistance, and love. Challenging revisionist histories that would prefer to forget the worst parts of our collective past as much as the present neoliberal logic that reduces people to numbers, they celebrate the messiness of humanity and the power of solidarity and love.
