KUTX Tells The Cactus Lee Story

KUTX profiled Cactus Lee in advance of the band’s stint at SXSW last week, calling the local act one of “seven must-see artists at SXSW.” The site writes, “Cactus Lee isn’t an individual but an Austin-based Americana project fronted by Kevin Dehan. Born in Houston, he moved to the capital of Texas in 1987 and has been playing Austin clubs since he was a teenager. His family includes relatives who played in the symphony and choir, but Dehan’s music owes more to Austin music legends like Marcia Ball, Doug Sahm, and Jerry Jeff Walker. Cactus Lee’s new album, Caravan, finds the group expanding its sonic palette following four albums and 2022’s mini album Perfect Middle Hall. Their music taps into the city’s cosmic country history, making them regulars at Austin’s honky-tonks and dive bars.”  Check out the feature here.
