Lee started playing guitar on his 8th birthday in 2010. He first learned Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water, followed quickly by songs from favourite artists like Hendrix, AC/DC, Zeppelin, Beatles, Clapton and others.
Lee has been playing for enthusiastic audiences in the Ottawa area since 2014, including on local TV and radio. Lee was awarded the ‘Individual Performer’ award at the 2014 City of Ottawa Student Showcase (Battle of the Bands).
2015 saw the first of Lee’s original songs Wishing Tree getting airplay on local radio, followed by 2016’s Right on Down the Line (both co-written by Robert Farrell).
Lee regularly performs as duo with Robert Farrell and as guitarist for Gary Slimmoore and the NewSoulProject, and with teen band Five + None.
