At the tender age of 7 Lee was introduced to the music of the legendary Jimi Hendrix. Lee's uncle lent him a selection of vinyl albums which included Band of Gypsies, Are You Experienced and Electric Ladyland. These albums are responsible for the Lee we hear today.
While Hendrix started the ball rolling Lee’s influences are wide and wonderful with artists such as The Beatles, The Stones, Guns ’n’ Roses, Queen, The Cult, Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, Grand Funk Railroad, UB40, Stevie Wonder, The Bee Gees, Robin Trower, Michael Jackson, My Bloody Valentine, James Gang, and Supergrass!!!
In the early days of gigging around the country his bands played mostly covers but Lee soon started introducing original tracks into the sets. These tracks were picked up by fans and radio stations around the world including Q Radio,Pure FM, Skyline FM, EKR Radio, Spark FM, BCB, Recharged Radio, Hermitage FM, GTFM and NME Radio.
The growing interest in Lee's original work prompted rave reviews at venues and festivals nationwide. Opening doors to performing alongside such rock luminaries as The Kooks, Tribes, Viva Brother, Mystery Jets, Los Campesinos, The Bluetones and Tinchy Stryder.
