The song itself was, “born on the road and can be considered a 100% group collaboration,” says Tom Shemer. “I will never forget that moment when I was driving to a concert in East Texas and PY was sitting next to me. I said to him, Hey, press record on the voice recorder, and I hummed This is who we are now into his phone. Months later, while we were in the studio, Lee-la took the microphone and without putting anything on paper, she did the take. That’s it, that’s all.” Watch the video HERE!

The Damn Truth was born after Lee-la and lead guitarist Tom Shemer first met, they were both naked at a hippie festival not far from the Sea of Galilee (where the Bible says Jesus walked on water).
The ‘60s ethos of organic self-sufficiency is the lifeblood of The Damn Truth and the secret to a work ethic that has garnered them almost 2 million streams on Spotify, 60,000 followers on TikTok and more than 2 million YouTube views. Lee-la’s voice on the Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris perfume video ad has been heard internationally, doubling their fan base overnight as the word about The Damn Truth and their powerhouse singer circled the globe.
They’ve played Europe and across the United States, opened tours for ZZ Top (and partied with Billy Gibbons in his pyjamas), the Sheepdogs, Styx and Rival Sons, sold out the legendary Whisky a Go-Go in Los Angeles and sold out the Corona Theatre in their hometown of Montreal.
