Meet Lolly Lee

Born a couple of miles from the Okefenokee Swamp the 74th of 75 grandchildren. A childhood rich with love and adventures. Realized I had an ear for music so taught myself to play guitar. It wasn’t until I was grown that I put together my love for listening to stories, words, music and started writing songs. In 2022, I lost my Dad, dog, and dear Husband. With the encouragement from my 4 grown-a** kids, I dove into writing again.
