Brett Wayne Lee was the lead singer of most the bands he toured locally with. The groups gained some success, but after a while, Brett started to feel like he was ready to strike out on his own. He felt like he had more to say musically than the band was allowing him to express, and so he made the decision to go solo. He hasn't looked back since!
"Move Close to Me" is a love story about meeting your soulmate for the first time. The black-key heavy intro sets the scene, and my reflections are on the rollercoaster emotions of love and anticipation. Hopefully, this will tap into those same emotions for you.
Brett wrote the song "No Rules" after his sixth year working in Afghanistan. He was starting to feel frustrated that all our efforts to help the people there seemed to be going to waste. It's not just the loss of life in war that's hard to deal with, it's also the way it changes people—both the soldiers and the civilians. They often lose themselves in the mess that is war. Just another "Stan" as we say in the military.
