Who is the Painter and who is the Poet?
Paulee Cee and Anna Lee of Painter & Poet created the band in 2014 when they lived in Savannah, Georgia, but instantly were faced with an obstacle that took away from their music together. Anna Lee was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that sapped the life out of her day after day and made the process of making music more like a burden as she continued to worsen. Over time the symptoms of the disease became so harsh that she didn’t have the strength to pick up her instrument or stand at the mic during rehearsals. The couple tried countless remedies to find a way to put the disease in remission, but there was no success in their attempts. Out of desperation to find a cure, the couple moved back home to the family farm in the deep country of south Texas at the end of 2017 and hit rock bottom in their music career. As they continued to seek out new healing methods, Anna Lee was miraculously healed and the couple was able to jump back in to the music that brought them together in the first place. Through the hardship their musical bond was made even stronger than before and their creativity and sound began to flourish in the new season of perseverance. Tenacious vocals with undertones of their southern grit flows in their music as they share their relatable life stories and the timeless principles they have learned along the way in their journey and know you can feel encouraged by.
