Singer/songwriter/guitarist Lenny Solomon’s style has been compared to early Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker. Solomon began his career in the late 1960s. A fixture in the old Idler Coffeehouse in Harvard Square, Cambridge, he regularly performed there on Friday nights for over eight years. The Idler was a training ground for such luminaries as Geoff Bartley, Paul Rishell, Spider John Koerner, and Ric Ocasek. During his years as a solo performer he shared bills with many name performers such as Chris Smither, Carolyn Hester, Bonnie Raitt, and Spider John. For many years music provided a backdrop to his life. From the 1980s through the mid-1990s Solomon continued to write songs but rarely performed in public. He chose rather to raise his family (now grown) and to work in environmental research at Harvard University. In 1997 Solomon got back into performing live and formed a folk/country band appropriately enough called the Lenny Solomon Band. Performing his original material, Solomon has since released three CD’s songs from which have been played on over 130 radio stations. Solomon regularly performs both solo and with his band in the greater Boston area. His website is www.solomonband.com.
