Over the years, Lee's music and song writing became highly influenced by songwriters like Lauryn Hill, Jeff Buckley, and Derek Webb, who introduced her to a kind of song writing that was raw, vulnerable, and courageous. To capture the poverty, brokenness, and pain was as equally important to Lee, as in capturing the beauty and hope within her songs....or else Lee felt like a fraud to her listeners. This soul searching and wrestling birthed songs that Lee started performing in coffee houses and open mics around the tri-state area. Soon after, she caught the attention of independent singer-songwriter and producer Koo Chung, who immediately asked her to open for his CD release concert after hearing her perform.
Lee was then invited to join Koo’s music label, BrokenforGood Records, where she went on two national tours and opening for musicians such as David Barnes and Monk & Neagle. Lee has recorded and released two albums, ((In)significance (6/5/03) and Without Wax (1/25/05). When her label disbanded, Lee took a hiatus from recording and touring to focus on school and her other passions. Lee then returned on July 4th of 2009, revealing to the world different side to her sound, by releasing a self-produced and self-titled EP - "Neah Lee, the EP." Lee currently works and lives in Orange County, CA. Read more on Last.fm.
