Lee Bob Watson first tasted popularity with his California rock band Jackpot before winning fans with his punk-gospel outfit, Santa Cruz Gospel Choir. Most recently, Watson has launched a solo career after 10 years in the music industry.

Created in 10 days with minimal overdubbing, his solo debut (Aficionado) is built around a lively, natural sound. According to Watson, "The songs on Aficionado grapple with the quest for authenticity in a culture that is based on recycled themes and sounds."
