Press & Bio
Originally from the Mountains of West Virginia, Paul Lee Kupfer has travelled as a solo performer and band leader since 2006 while living in Philadelphia, California, Tennessee, Montana and towns in between. Restless touring and writing has allowed him to share the bill with some of his heroes.

Paul Lee has shared the stage with The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Taj Mahal, Shovels & Rope, Truth & Salvage Co., Sarah Jarosz, Pokey Lafarge, The Emmitt Nershi Band, Los Lonely Boys and many more talented performers. He has played at Red Ants Pants Festival, and the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion as well as theaters, bars, venues, haunts, dives, and places in between.

"Paul exceeded any expectation I could have had. His music is rich and timeless and his ability to tell a story with a song was amazing... I would also describe his music as a melding of singer/songwriter, folk, and blues. Paul's songs were well written and his words and musical ability kept me captivated throughout his entire set." -- Carolina Music Review

"Another video shows Paul Lee Kupfer playfully picking out "Riverbank Blues" at a kitchen table littered with cups, trash and an ashtray. Dirty dishes pile up in the sink and the back door stands open. Just as you become enamored with Paul's voice and mischievous sound, the white coffee maker behind him reminds you: this could be your kitchen. The wall between singer and listener are down, and what is left is his charming grin and the belief that at some point today he really will, "...go down to the riverbank to see his baby swim"." --
