Lee was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is the middle child of 5. His family moved to the US when he was pre school age, and landed in Branford, CT. Lee’s family continued to move to new towns every few years throughout his life. As a result, Lee became immersed in his music. Growing up, the guitar became Lee’s best friend! He started with piano lessons around age 8 and switched to guitar around age 11. Lee spent lots of time learning cover songs, and began writing his own songs around age 13. By age 14 or 15, Lee and his friends started several bands after school. When Lee graduated from Reno HS, he moved to Boulder CO to attend CU Boulder, where he received a BA in Environmental Science. A couple years later, Lee then attended UCD Denver for a Degree in Music and Sound Technology. Looking back, Lee always struggled to make decent grades in High School and College, until he switched his focus to Music, when it became easy to do well in school with hardly any effort!
