Lee Hazlewood (Barton Lee Hazlewood, Mannford, Oklahoma, July 9, 1929 – Henderson, Nevada, August 4, 2007) was an
American country and pop singer, songwriter, and record producer, most widely known for his work with guitarist Duane
Eddy during the late fifties and singer Nancy Sinatra in the sixties.
Hazlewood had a distinctive baritone voice that added an ominous resonance to his music. Hazlewood’s collaborations with
Nancy Sinatra as well as his solo output in the late 1960s and early 1970s have been praised as an essential contribution to a
sound often described as “Cowboy Psychedelia” or “Saccharine Underground”.
