Personal information

Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Lee migrated to Santa Cruz specifically to fill the role of Drummer for Estradasphere.

Estradasphere's flexibility and chameleon-like character requires a drummer with experience in a wide variety of styles and Lee's authentic and virtuosic mastery of progressive rock and metal drumming made him a perfect fit.

Lee studied music at the Atlanta Institute of Music and since arriving on the West Coast toured as the substitute drummer for The Stolen Babies, recorded with the Secret Chiefs 3, and has performed locally with Shakespeare Santa Cruz and God of Shamisen.
