Often compared to artists like Glenn Hughes, Bobby Kimball, and Steve Walsh because of his melodic soulful voice, Lee Small has been the vocalist on more than 40 recordings such as Tom Galley’s Phenomena project, Shy, Signal Red, Ten, and many others. The Last Man On Earth is his new solo album.
Lee Small is an established artist throughout the world having been the voice of many popular rock bands. In addition to releasing four previous solo albums, he’s done a number of projects and session work.

He was also the vocalist on Shy’s acclaimed self-titled 2011 album, the band’s biggest selling record since Excess All Areas in 1987. He went on to front Lionheart after their 2016 reunion concert, creating such demand and interest in the band they released the albums Second Nature and The Reality Of Miracles, and toured the UK and Europe, making a notable appearance at The Sweden Rock Festival.
Recorded in London, Los Angeles, and Texas during 2022, The Last Man On Earth is a classic melodic rock feast in the vein of Journey and Toto and features a wealth of the best musician’s around. There’s Lee’s guitar-slinging band mate Steve Mann from MSG and Lionheart, drummer Edu Cominato from Queensryche vocalist Geoff Tate’s solo band, highly regarded session player Charles Berthoud on bass, and Tommy Denander, notable for his work with Bobby Kimball, features prominently on guitar. If that wasn’t enough for you melodic rock maniacs to devour, there’s also a duet with funk metal legend Dan Reed of the Dan Reed Network.
