Located at 208 West 4th Street, it is one of many upscale and trendy venues in the Warehouse District.

Lee MacDougall [Interview]

Article written by Annie Closs with contributions by Katherine Hamilton.

Anyone who loves a British accent should check out indie rocker Lee MacDougall. MacDougall has been gaining popularity both in Europe and the United States, and the accent is far from the only reason why. While this singer-songwriter might not be enjoying international stardom yet, his sincere lyrics, awesome acoustic sounds and passion make him worthy of comparison with big-name musicians from the United Kingdom such as The Beatles and Rod Stewart. It hasn’t taken long for MacDougall to produce some great songs and put on some amazing shows.

Following his recent success on his “If Walls Could Talk” tour, MacDougall is about to embark on his second US tour, “All the Right Places.” His new self-produced album, For a Few Tales More, will be released to coincide with his tour and includes songs “Hindsight” and “Smile.” His tour will begin August 4 in New York City and continue throughout the US until his final US show on October 1 back in New York. One stop will be in Austin, TX, a place he is familiar with since he played at the SXSW festival in March. Austin’s Cedar Street Courtyard has kindly provided us with five pairs of tickets for his August 26th performance. Find out how you can win them, here!
