West Coast Winter Music Festival: John Lee Trio

October 29, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Raised in Nanaimo BC, multi-instrumentalist John Lee continues to be one of the highest acclaimed jazz artists nationwide. After showing great interest in music at a young age, Lee developed into a virtuoso by his late teens. Lee moved to Boston in 2010 to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston where he was mentored by Ralph Peterson Jr and Dave Santoro. Lee relocated back to his west coast motherland in 2016 and began his professional career. A rare talent, Lee pushes the boundaries as a multi-instrumentalist in the Jazz world as he regularly performs as a leader and in-demand sideman on five different instruments.

Starting an association with internationally recognized record label owner and booking agent Cory Weeds in recent years, Lee was provided many opportunities to accompany the who’s who of the Jazz world. Since 2018, Lee has performed with many visiting artists in Vancouver BC including Ralph Moore, Eric Alexander, Joe Farnsworth, Peter Bernstein, Grant Stewart, Joe Magnarelli, Mike LeDonne and Lucy Yeghiazaryan.

With the support of the Cellar Music Group, Lee recorded his first album “The Artist” in 2021 under the Cellar Live record label featuring legendary Jazz drummer Carl Allen.
