    So there's going to :bz some interesting news soon... :-?

    You are correct! Here's the update!

    APRIL 2014 UPDATE
    Hey everyone. Hope this message finds you all well. Chris & I have been very busy lately and we’re excited to announce some exciting things that are coming up very soon with Cluthe/Lee. We’ll keep you all posted on what we have coming up as things come together.

    New Cluthe/Lee album in the works!
    We’re very excited to announce that we’ve started preparing our 4th (still untitled at this point) album! We’re still in the early stages, but we do have the songs picked out for the album. We’ll be working on finishing various aspects (recording/mixing/edits) of these songs over the next couple of months. Once that part is done, we’ll be sending it off to be mastered. We aren’t going to reveal the tracklist quite yet, but I can tell you that there are several new songs on this album that have not been released & that you won’t be able to hear until the album is out. We’re also very excited to announce that Matt’s sister, Maura, will be once again lending her talents by designing the album artwork. She has created all of our album art to this point & you can see more of her artwork at www.frag-ment-ed.com. As the album process moves along, we’ll keep you updated on how the pre-sale will work and how the album is coming along. We have some really fun ideas for the pre-sale. Lastly, we’re really excited for everyone to hear it & it sounds very different from anything we’ve done up to this point.

    Matt Cluthe solo album:
    As a lot of you know, Matt is constantly writing. He started developing an idea for a solo album when he wrote a couple of songs that didn’t quite fit the Cluthe/Lee mold. After lots of encouragement from everyone, including Chris, he started piecing together his first solo album. It has come together rather quickly, but it still has a ways to go. Just like with Cluthe/Lee, we will keep you all updated as the album unfolds & there are firmer plans in place. Most of the songs are brand new, but there are a couple of older songs that have resurfaced & are in consideration for the album.

    You asked, Matt answered:
    A couple of weeks ago, we asked all of you if you had any questions for Matt about Cluthe/Lee, our process or anything else you were curious about. The response was great! Matt will be posting a video with his responses on our site, www.cluthelee.com & on our Facebook page. Thanks a ton for your questions & we’ll do another Q&A session with Chris very soon! Look for this video to be posted in the next week or so. It's on YouTube here:

    Writing, writing & more writing:
    Both Matt & Chris are continuing to write each & every day. In typical Cluthe/Lee style, these songs are all over the place in terms of style & tone. You can expect to hear some new tunes within the next several weeks.

    The Uke is just a lot of fun. The Gretsch is a guitar that I've been drooling over for years & I've been saving here & there. So stoked to have them both!

    Update on our 4th Album!

    Hi family and friends of Cluthe/Lee!

    Matt and I are hard at work on polishing up songs for our fourth full length record. The process is slow and methodical as it has been in the past. Its a wonderful collection of songs that are quite different from anything we've released thus far and we're both excited to bring it to you all. As you know, Cluthe/Lee is a organically grown, community/self-funded group and thanks to all your support over the last 5 years we've been able to have CDs made of our last 3 records, that also included a mastering job on on last record Where It Began. When Matt and I first decided to work on a fourth record, we knew that we wanted to take a new angle on how to put it out. We'll get straight to the point here and I find that making a list helps! So, here we go! Here is what Matt and I want to accomplish with this new record.

    1. Master this record - but take it up a notch working with a new engineer to really polish these songs. For those that have Where It Began, you'll notice how much better those songs sound compared to our first two when Matt and I were doing it all by ourselves.

    2. Offer the record in a variety of formats both physical and digital. This means the possibility of vinyl, CDs, download cards and availability at a large number of online stores like iTunes and Google Play.

    Ok, so what's the catch here? Both of those goals above will obviously cost money. Money that neither Matt or I have. That's where you guys and the greater public come in. Most of you are aware of crowd funding like Kickstarter and might have, like me, supported a few projects you were really into. Well, that's exactly what Matt and I feel will help us accomplish all our goals for this fourth album. Its an exciting and nerve wracking prospect to put the fate of this record into the hands of the people, but it feels right, the timing is right and feel Cluthe/Lee is a project worth backing!

    As of this letter, we are kicking around a prize structure for backing the our fourth album and the ideas are exciting! We do not have a fundraising site set up quite yet - we want to make sure we have all our ducks in a row first, but both Matt and I felt you guys should be the first to know about what we're planning. You've been the source of support and enthusiasm that has been and is in many ways, the life force that keeps us going. We don't have any other information as of yet to share, but when we do, we will be in touch.

    As it has been in the past, we are so very grateful for your unwavering support and love from the beginning. Its a new chapter in Cluthe/Lee and we are stoked at what's coming....

    With Kind Regards,

    Chris & Matt
