Is a solo performer who has been performing for over 30 years.
Lee picked up his first guitar at the ripe old age of 9. As a teenager, he would spend many nights and days learning and attempting to emulate such music greats as: Tom T. Hall, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Don McClean, John Denver, Peter, Paul and Mary, to name just a few.
Lee performed on stage for the very first time in New York City at Jimmy Weston's, at the age of 18 while stationed on Governor's Island, during his enlistment in the U.S. Coast Guard.
During those years, he became known for his vocal ability in singing and performing in the style of John Denver, one of his great influences of the time.
Since those days of long ago, Lee has performed at many venues.
More recently, to name a few, Lee has performed at Ann O'Malley's Pub and Deli, Mi Casa Restaurant as well as The Milltop Tavern, all in St. Augustine, Florida;
his winter place of residence.
During the spring and summer months, Lee performs at various venues in the greater Detroit, Michigan area, such as The Captain's Landing Restaurant,
Clinton River Cruises and The Double D Grill and Bar.
Lee recently made the decision to join with Gig Masters in order to broaden his horizons musically, as well as his ability to connect with others on a more national scale.
Lee's current performances are influenced by a host of artists from the 60's on up to current times such artists as Jimmy Buffet, Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Steve Earle, Van Morrison, John Mellencamp, Marc Cohn, The Eagles and many others. It has been said that his vocal sounds greatly resemble those of Jackson Browne.
Please visit Lee's audio and video section to hear a sampling of Lee's sound. As a recent addition to Gig Masters, Lee will be adding more to his site in the way of audios and videos.
Lee is strictly acoustic, no Karaoke or background tracks, just the Raw sound as you will hear it in a “Live” performance. The songs that are included here, both covers and originals, were recorded with one take, and with no editing.
If you are looking for an entertainer who will add the right amount of spice and great performance with songs well sung, give ol' Lee a listen.
Thanks For Visiting With Us at Gig Masters.
