LOS ANGELES - Oct. 8, 2013 - PRLog -- The Northern California born and raised, Los Angeles based singer-songwriter dons horn-rimmed glasses,  screaming red bow tie, bright pants to match, gold shoes –any combination that adds up to red, white, blue black and gold. With all eyes fixed on him, he gets to it, blazing fresh trails with his blistering guitar, electronic beats and powerhouse vocals. Just months after leaving his last band, the renowned L.A. based duo Word, Lee, flush with hope and positive energy, marks his emergence as a solo artist with his soaring and infectious debut EP Move.

“As a person and artist, I am all about simply embracing and enjoying the time we have. I wrote three of these new songs just before I went into the studio, and the ideas flowed very freely. I think these five tracks show a strong variety of styles that draw from pop, rock and soul.”

The songs on Move are a perfect expression of Lee’s skills as a high impact composer and lyricist, as well as his unique new sound which finds him blending bass and guitar into a single instrument, backed by electronic drum beats.

Though the concept of the perfectly titled 5-track set is about overcoming the past, moving forward optimistically and leaving the past in the dust, Lee brings a colorful array of pop and rock influences and a rich history of playing in an eclectic series of bands to his current vibe. First, there are the legends he heard as a kid who have inspired him as an artist and wild onstage performer: Michael Jackson, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Little Richard, Elvis, James Brown and Chuck Berry. When he was 12, Lee discovered hard rock and heavy metal. Inspired by the band Korn, he traded in his acoustic guitar for an electric Squier, marking a long fixation with Fender guitars.

“I also connected with the guys from Korn because they’re from Bakersfield and I’m from a little town up north that no one ever heard of,” says Lee, who hails from American Canyon in Southern Napa County. “I found their raw power and energy enthralling, and I loved the fact that they made up their own tunings. That’s where I got my guitar style from. To this day, I use the same open tuning they did.”

Lee will be performing several shows in L.A. this fall creating a synthesis of sound via his guitar, bass amp and heavy beats emerging from his laptop, with pre-recorded background vocals. “Just as I sing about in the song ‘The Moment,’ there’s a right time for everything no matter the obstacles getting there. It’s really about enjoying the journey and taking things day by day,” he says. “I’m really excited about getting out there and performing as a solo artist!”
