Born and raised in the heart of the Midwest Lee Gantt is a singer/songwriter from Columbus, OH. Growing up just 10 miles from one of the largest universities in the country Lee cut his teeth playing in clubs while attending college at The Ohio State University. The unique blend of old-style country lyrics and new school country melodies are hallmarks of the Lee Gantt sound. Gritty, heartfelt lyrics with powerful driving melodies help to fortify the deep connection Lee has with his fans. Lee developed his style from a variety of influences including Jason Aldean, Garth Brooks, Eric Church, and Conway Twitty but primarily credits Kenny Chesney for inspiring him to become the writer and performer he is today. “The Way Kenny can tell a story and describe a scene you can almost close your eyes and imagine yourself there in that moment,” says Gantt. Chesney inspired him to become a writer and performer who cannot only invoke emotion but help the listener to cope with the harsh realities of life, love, and coming of age.
