INTRODUCING SHAY ANTHONY LEA
I grew up listening to anything and everything, charts, soul, folk, rock. I learnt to play on my father's old guitar and as a lefty learnt to play right-handed, something I hope hasn't stunted my lefty creativity! My major influences growing up, apart from all the chart hits, were James Taylor, Paul Simon, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Steely Dan, America, Richard Thompson and others. These days I'm as likely to listen to Adele, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Folk/Country/...its a large list. I love good songwriting with good melody.
