Lee Pardini Releases New Single "LV, NV"

Lee Pardini just released the fourth single from his upcoming album. 

“‘LV, NV’ was written in response to the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 1, 2017 - a tragedy of unimaginable proportions. We live in an American society where this is all too common. I wanted to try and capture some of the total sadness, anger, and confusion of this tragedy.” – Lee Pardini

Lee Pardini Releases New Single "ETA"

GroundUP Music is proud to announce the next single from artist, Lee Pardini. Lee is the keyboardist in Dawes and releasing his first solo record on GroundUP Music on February 12, 2021. Enjoy his new single "ETA," out now.

"This is a tribute to ETA, a bar/restaurant/live music venue in Highland Park, LA CA. ETA, the venue, represents a space for creative freedom and collaboration with some of the deepest improvisers in the scene. ETA, the song, is a vehicle for different players to have their voices heard. A simple ostinato in the bass provides the framework for the musicians to pass around solos and meditate on a groove." (Lee Pardini)
