John Lee Experience
John Lee Experience John Lee plays the guitar with biting power, flowing groove, and a fluency that reflects his wide range of influences. The Washington, D.C.-based guitarist, composer and bandleader draws inspiration from jazz, blues, Indian classical, alternative rock and Malian music, but his work extends beyond all boundaries. Lee has performed with stars in a broad array of genres – from Matisyahu to Hassan Hakmoun to Cyro Baptista – and his own John Lee Experience has accrued a dedicated following in the D.C. area. The J.L.e performs regularly at a variety of rock and jazz venues. Lee has released two recordings as a bandleader: the 2011 album Somewhere Impossible to Find and the 2013 EP The Nature Series. On both records, Lee contrasts the soaring power of electric blues and ambient post-rock with a global blend of rhythmic influences.
