The European press has credited John Lee for bringing the Blues into the 21st Century, with itâs deep lyric content, and fusing the influence of the best in pop, jazz, country, gospel, New Orleans street rhythms, funk, soul, and Rhythm & Blues.

He spent his youth in the Mississippi Delta, the swamps of Louisiana, & the plains of Texas, immersed in the wealth of jazz, country, blues and gospel music that have become the DNA of North American pop music for over fifty years. The deeply intertwined roots in music of this gifted piano, sax and vocal performer/composer have found inspiration in some very interesting places. John Leeâs grandmother played piano in the silent movie theaters of Memphis and lived a few short blocks from Stax Records, the birthplace of American soul music. His motherâs first cousin played trombone with W.C. Handy, âfather of the bluesâ, and encouraged Johnâs music early on.
He met Elvis Presley and his folks in Memphis in 1957, when Presley bought his first house a few doors down from John Lee's Aunt and Uncle. Gladys and Vernon Presley took little John Lee in for a tour of the house, and sent him on his way, inspired that a boy could grow up to be President or a Rock star.

His childhood encounters with the likes of Elvis and Dr. Martin Luther King are part of the landscape that influenced this gifted performer and composer. At twelve years old, John Lee was billed as âBirminghamâs answer to Little Stevie Wonderâ. He received a music scholarship and studied saxophone, guitar and piano, which led to a degree in composition from the prestigious North Texas State University. While abroad studying painting and music in Rome, he was introduced to Professor Longhair and Dr. John at the Montreux Jazz Festival, which awakened his passion for New Orleans piano.

In 1975, when John Leeâs equipment truck broke down on the way to a gig in Austin, Texas, an up an coming Stevie Ray Vaughan put John and the band up at his home, and reâenergized his life long love of the blues. John has now incorporated the âTexas Stratocasterâ sound into the show, and is bringing in a new generation of fans.

Acting on an invitation from the drummer from the Doobie Brothers, John Lee headed west in 1977 to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he signed a major label deal with Rod Stewartâs Riva Records, and a production contract with Narada Michael Walden, the most successful producer of the 80s & 90s, creating mega hits for Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin.
