Bio

Douglas J. Lee has been writing music for the last decade. He first picked up a guitar when he was fifteen years old and tried to write a song after listening to “Plush” by the Stone Temple Pilots. And so, his musical journey had begun. The tone of his voice is very reminiscent of the mid-90’s grunge rock era, similar to his heroes Chris Cornell and Scott Wieland.

His curiosity grew even more when he moved to Boston to go to school. He then started listening to everything from Bob Dylan to Radiohead, which made him start to focus both on lyrics and how to craft a good song. He was also a literature major, which only helped him more in the songwriting process.

After college, he was still very restless in his skills as a musician. He decided to hone his craft even more, taking guitar and voice lessons, which he says changed his life. His lyrical content mainly revolves around the intensity and heartache of a man deep in revelatory thought. He sings with an unhindered honesty and it seems every time he puts his lips to the microphone, it’s a testimony to that particular instance in his life.

Douglas J. Lee is based out of Philadelphia, where he recorded his self-titled debut album, which is due out for release in May 2008.
