Lee has performed locally in NYC’s music circuit (CBGB’s, The Bitter End, The Lion’s Den, The Cutting Room, Kavehaz to name a few) as well as colleges, universities, churches, and cafes on both coasts.In live performances she plays a variety of instruments (but primarily acoustic guitar), while singing her own harmony vocals and creating textures by recording and playing back harmony lines and instrumentations in real time (looping). The resulting layered nature of her performances carries the listener through the tensions between art and reality, the intimate and grand, and the sacred and profane. Growing up in Queens, New York, singer-songwriter Neah Lee was shaped by a rich mosaic of experiences, much of which influences her music today. Being born to parents who valued and integrated music and spirituality, Lee had an early thirst for music that would move souls. As early as the age of two, you would find her standing on furniture conducting to the music only heard in her head.

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.
