Lee and Sharisse Coulter, a husband & wife creative team for the past 9 years, are embarking on a 6 month 55 city tour of the U.S. with their 4 year old son to share their respective passions.
With Sharisse acting as manager, publicist, photographer and more, the couple were able to get Lee’s music from the coffee houses of San Diego to the popular Coffee House channel on Sirius Satellite Radio, where he has now been heard on a national level for almost two years.
At the start of last year, while Sirius XM listeners were voting Lee “the singer-songwriter discovery of 2011″, Sharisse was writing her debut novel based on friendship and love in the music industry and finding ones true identity in the world of celebrity. And while she was completing it, Lee was there to act as housekeeper, sounding board, preliminary editor and artistic ego booster.
They have come a long way from when they met as neighbors in Townsville, Australia in 2002 but one thing has remained clear: that in love, encouragement and creativity are always worth sharing.
“The singer-songwriter discovery of 2011,” Sirius XM Coffee House.
San Diego based Aussie, Lee Coulter, sings deeply lyrical songs reminiscent of classic thematic songwriters of the 40s and 50s, while in the form of modern acoustic indie-pop. It’s Cole Porter meets Jack Johnson in Motown.
Sharisse Coulter, originally from Lake Tahoe, started with a smidge of college in Paris (not Texas), a dash in Australia and, voilà! A master’s degree in Anthropology framed and placed lovingly on a shelf, never to be dusted off again. Instead, she took the clear path to success, marrying a musician, becoming his manager and touring the country playing gigs, taking photos, and making music videos. Finally, she had a son (and subsequent identity crisis), which fueled the completion of her first novel (soon to be released) ROCK MY WORLD. Now at work on her second and third novels, she’s concurrently embarking on A Novel Music Tour: a 5 month 55 city national music/book tour while perfecting the art of Lego and enjoying her addiction to reading novels on her iPhone. It’s a wonderful life for an insatiable wanderluster.
