CELEBRATE KNOXVILLE – Tim Lee 3 kicks off Ijams’ summer Music in the Park series this Sunday, (July 31, 2016) but the band has a ton of stuff going on right now.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Susan Bauer Lee is in Girls Rock Camp today, so if you haven’t been keeping up with that on Facebook, go here: https://www.facebook.com/susanbauerlee
Celebrate Knoxville connected online with Tim Lee about the upcoming TL3 show at IJAMS. Turns out they really have a full plate and are ready to share with fans on the road and at home.
“We are in the process of recording our fifth full-length record, which we have planned for a late-October release,” Tim Lee says. “In the meantime, we’re splitting our on-the-road time between the TL3 and Bark, mine and Susan’s duo. Bark was a side project that has taken legs. We will record a full-length Bark record sometime this fall or winter.”
The TL3 has a couple cool shows coming up, in addition to the Ijams show. They will be opening for Unknown Hinson at the Shed in Maryville on Aug. 13 and playing at the Secret Stages Festival in Birmingham, Alabama, on Aug. 6. After those shows, the band will lay low for a few weeks, although Bark will still be out, playing shows in Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, Spartanburg, St. Louis, Winston-Salem, and elsewhere.
“For October, we are planning a weekly Friday night residency, the rock n’ roll happy hour, from 7-9:30 each Friday,” Lee says. “The TL3 will play two of them, and Bark will play two. All four shows will feature special guests, and the final show on Oct. 28 is slated for the TL3 record release show.”
In the meantime, check out Tim Lee Three at IJAMS on Sunday, July 31, 2016. Doors open at 5 p.m.; music starts at 6 p.m. Food and beer will be available for purchase. Tickets are $5; kids 5 and under free.
