"Chick Singer Night Summerfest Review"

Review: Chick Singer Night
Posted: July 1, 2006
By: Jon M. Gilbertson

As a name for a national non-profit organization for the benefit of female musicians, "Chick Singer Night" evokes both sexism and sisterhood. As a Saturday afternoon show at the Potawatomi Casino Stage, it also was a mixed bag - of styles, that is.

With an inclusive attitude toward genres, the Milwaukee version of Chick Singer Night ranged from the pop-inflected rock of Leah Jee to the retro jazz of Wisconsin Area Music Industry Award nominee Ellen Winters to the lively (if curiously maternal) R&B covers of Rebecca Ellsworth.

"Audience Reviews from Summerfest 2006"

I was BLOWN AWAY by Leah Jee, part of the Chick Singer Night show. I've followed her since her days rocking The Annex at Marquette with Halfday. It is so great to see how much she has grown as an artist over the years. Her vocals are KILLER and all her material leave me wanting to hear more LEAH JEE MUSIC!!!!!! Overall, great show. She spectacular.

- Lizzy Wagenaar, Chicago, IL

I had the opportunity to see the Chick Singer Night Showcase on the evening of July 1st. I was, without a doubt, impressed. The showcase showed a wide variety of talented acts, consistently changing acts and was very impressed to see some of the collaborations happening between artists. It was a unique event; something I had never seen at Summerfest before. The performance by LEAH JEE was especially impressive and found myself, along with many others in the crowd, completely blown away by this change of pace and overwhelming display of talent. I think that this powerhouse of a performer should have her own time slot and own show for the up and coming 2007 Summerfest!

- Calynne, Madison, WI

I thought Chick Singer Night was awesome -- it was great to see up-and-coming new local musicians have a place to show off. Leah Jee's rocking set at CSN made me want to burn my bra and headbang all at the same time. I'd definitely see this again next year.

"Fan Reviews"

“Leah Jee always gets the crowd going! She interacts and makes sure everyone has a great time at her show! Her music is brilliant and she is a magnificent artist! I'll be at every possible show I can be at!”
-Nikki Kronshagen


"I think you are one of the best musical writers I have ever heard. Your music is fantastic and each time I hear a new song that I have not heard in the past, I am impressed again.

It's great to hear your voice in the songs, too. But watching you play your guitar and the music that comes out of it is what I think is the most amazing thing about your performances.

I was browsing iTunes the other day - looking for new music. Then I went to your website to listen to your songs.

I sat there thinking to myself: She is truly gifted-moreso than this crap I am trying to find on iTunes. I am a bad person not to show my support more often.

So, here it is, love. You are going to be a star.

Love, Monica Klasky"

In your ear
Leah Jee & The Boys
By Lilledeshan Bose
Posted: June 5, 2008

"I don't usually tell people what the songs are about so people could judge for themselves," singer-songwriter Leah Jee says over the phone. Her song, "You Follow," was inspired by "Felicity," Jee's favorite TV show of the late 1990s.

On the show, Felicity followed her boyfriend to New York City and did everything to "make her life really compatible with his," Jee said. Most of the plot twists dealt with Felicity working around her boyfriend's life. In the end, Felicity gave him an ultimatum: make life changes for her as well.

Jee said the show's storyline paralleled what was happening in her life at the time. That whole "it's my turn now - I've sacrificed for you, so do the same for me" resonated with Jee, and she wrote the song within 15 to 20 minutes.

"A good song will be done in a matter of minutes for me," she admitted. "If it takes longer, I know it's not a hit song." What the song shows, she added, is that "inspiration can come from anywhere."

That's good, because when Jee moved from sunny California (she grew up in Pasadena) to Milwaukee to attend Marquette University, the move did more than educate her. The West Coast/Midwest vibe seeps into her music. The songs on her EP, "All the Things I Forgot to Mention," touch on pop culture, a sense of place and love.

The only constant songwriting tool Jee really needs is a Uni-ball pen. "I'm really picky about the pens I use, and it's fluid. I always keep one close to me," she said. To record ideas, she also uses her cell phone's voice memo.

"My goal is to write a song for any type of emotion that you can feel. . . . When I write a song, it should have meaning and emotion behind it, because what's the point if you're not feeling it?"

"I think your music is awesome and needs to be heard…"

Ellen Winters, award-winning WAMI female vocalist

"Hey there, my "rocker chick"...
How much fun was that? Basking in the afterglow of a packed house at Summerfest. Ahhhh... :) You rocked the house...great job!"
-Alaria Taylor, Milwaukee-based singer-songwriter & award winning WAMI performer

"Great set last night! It was a pleasure sharing the stage with you guys."
-Sweet Jelly, Milwaukee cover band

So... any thoughts on world domination? Cuz I know Portland is just waiting for some serious ass-kicking. And we might just be the ladies they need to kick that ass."
-Carley Baer, Portland-based singer-songwriter

"Loving the tracks! You have a beautiful voice; keep those hits coming!"
