Dubh Lee started making music in the summer of 2018 as a folk singer and guitarist and has since entertained countless audiences with her raw vocal and slick guitar style. In 2019 she performed the Ruby Sessions, Electric Picnic and the Rory Gallagher festival in Ballyshannon and she has performed intimate shows all over Ireland, opening for acts such as Jack Lukeman and Bagatelle. She supported jazz band Jimmy’s Cousin on their Irish tour, which included performances in The Set Theatre in Kilkenny, Dolan’s in Limerick and The Sugar Club in Dublin.
In a shift from her folk beginnings she has transitioned from performing solo with an acoustic guitar to performing heavier material with a bassist, drummer and keys in 2020, now playing energetic live sets featuring songs with blues and garage rock influences. In 2020 she performed at a number of live-streamed and hybrid events, such as the Hotpress Lockdown Sessions, Transmission festival, Laters with Griff and the Five Lamps Arts festival. Dubh topped off the year with an intimate performance at Apres Palooza (Cherrycool Promotions, Castlepalooza) on 12th December 2020. In 2021 she appeared twice on Fluttertone's Monday Club livestream show as well as a cosy performance and interview for Transmission TV in May.
She has collaborated with artists from a variety of genres, and her vocals have featured on singles released by rappers Sea High and Daly and drum’n’bass outfit WOB!.
Dubh Lee’s latest single Carousel is a raucous blues-rock tune in which the singer cries out in loneliness and distress. It deals with using partying as a coping mechanism and features a driving chromatic riff, fat bass guitar, and unhinged lead guitar work. Carousel is available on all major streaming platforms and the song's mesmerizing music video premiered on Goldenplec in December 2020.
