Over the last few months Lee Rice has been on a exhilarating and often grueling epic busking tour along the Northern Mediterranean. Now resting and recharging from his saga, he is launching a GoFundMe campaign for his now CD and is considering writing a book.
“I’m wiped out, truly. Still, broken, but not defeated.
While in Montenegro, one of the most memorable moments of the tour was caught on video. Lee Rice wrote and performed an amazing song that was one of the first videos we we added to Video Gold.
Lee Rice – You’re Me
Epic Busking Tour Took Tenacity
“I’ve just completed 5 truly challenging months of travel, from Sicily to Cyprus, by land. Playing in around 80 places in Italy, Slovenia, Montenegro, Albania, Bulgaria and Turkey.
Truly, a huge, huge challenge. I’ve slept in caves, – 15, empty buildings, beaches, park benches, and more. I’ve hitched and walked crazy distances, and pushed myself to breaking point to make Istanbul, 400th place played. It had to be somewhere special :)”
“As per the rest of my travels, the rewards of new friendships and inspiration for writing, made it worthwhile.
Now, I am truly broken, and very happy to be taking the time to recover, and write a book.
The book will be called “I’m Alive” it’s about my life, and this last 4 years of busking. I’ve now played in 412 places, in 30 countries.
The next person that tells me, wow, you are living the dream, should come and give it a try!
It’s such an incredibly challenging job and lifestyle.”

Now Lee is busking in Girne. Directly opposite Windows coffee shop/restaurant, in a square. You can find his busking marker on our map,
“There are many, many other places go play in the city, but maybe, just about, this one worked out the best.
I finally made it to my friends place, and now comes the recovery :)Yes, now comes the recovery… At last :)”
