"Music's in my blood, it's all I know how to do. The decision to work on my own album felt obvious, natural.”

Taking an alternative path to each of his Coral cohorts, when the group disbanded in 2012, Lee Southall left behind his native seaside town of Hoylake on the Wirral, and moved 75 miles inland to the ‘tops’ of Hebden Bridge.  In search of a fresh start, the dramatic wind-beaten and changeable landscape gave Lee time and space to craft Iron In The Fire

Self-financed and recorded over just a few days at Manchester’s Airtight studios with his own league of melody makers

A slice of Lee Southall's life is found in this video, done while rehearsing the songs from his debut LP 'Iron In The Fire'

It features Mark 'Horse' Philips. Sarah Dale, Cello & Ant Davey, ,Filmed at The Golden Lion, Todmorden, West Yorkshire... Songs include 'Iron In The Fire' & 'Under The Weather'

This album 'Iron In The Fire' is about change, transformation, something being melted down and re­shaped.”  I worked building dry stone walls on the moors,” Lee reveals of his whereabouts. “Living up there, 

the weather is always a big issue. ... so I guess the landscape got into the songs in some way.

Lee Southall "Iron In The Fire' the debut solo album is released Worldwide on VINYL / CD & Digital on WONDERFULSOUND 21st April 2017.  Available at the WONDERFULSOUND shop and at all reputable dealers
