Sycamore Tree One of the most beautiful albums I've heard. Every piece of this album feels delicately hand crafted into an actual masterpiece full of genuine emotion. Favorite track: Felt like Love.

carlcasinghino Shawn Lee follow up his superb "Rides Again" with an album that is, amazingly, even stronger and more moving. Just gets better and better with each listen, it's a profound masterwork from the father of the Ping Pong Orchestra. Can't believe Mr. Lee is able to make these solo albums in between all the other projects, especially the deepening discography of Young Gun Silver Fox. Thanks so much for this 2022 surprise. Favorite track: 5 O'Clock Shadow.

Shawn Lee follows up his country-soul solo album “Rides Again”, released in 2019, with an even more personal, intriguing set of songs. The US born and London based prolific singer, songwriter, musician, producer, arranger, filmmaker and author puts the story of “Rides Yet Again” in his own words.

“When the original pandemic lockdown of 2020 ascended upon the world, I found myself like many others a prisoner in my own home. I began thinking about making new music. What do I wanna do I pondered… ‘Rides Again’ was a personal once in a lifetime album or was it? After some reflection, I realised there was more to this story, this sound. As I eventually crept back to my studio ducking and diving all the way, I started writing and recording new songs for Rides YET Again. The lyrics heavily informed by life during lockdown, my new dog Carla and my recent health problems. I had suffered a stroke which left me with some brain damage and I struggled with Aphasia for well over a year with extremely impaired speech. It was hard … I found solace in song and a musical context to share my ups and downs. It was a beautiful place to retreat to. John Pickup brought his brilliant orchestral treatments. Also Nichol Thomson, Tom Walsh, Mike Davis & Andy Ross blessed me with their sublime horn stylings. Suffice to say I’m really quite fond of this little record. Much love to you wherever you may be.”
