Jessee Lee is known for her picturesque songwriting ability, unique vocals, and quirky bass line-like guitar playing. Jessee’s biggest musical influences include Amy Winehouse, Waylon Jennings, Guy Clark, Leon Redbone, Dolly Parton, Etta James, Elvis, and the Alabama Shakes.
Along with legendary singers, Jessee was heavily shaped by the Nashville Songwriting scene. Her Father, Grammy nominated Singer-Songwriter, David Lee, was her biggest musical influence. From the early age of 6, her father taught her how to play guitar and he emphasized the importance of good story telling in a song. There is no doubt she absorbed all of the creativity she grew up around. With over 200 original songs, you will find Jessee’s songwriting ability surpasses the usual mind of a 25 year old. Her repertoire of songs cover the reality of aging, the inner workings of family, the quest of life’s purpose, the hardships and happiness of relationships, and the obscure thoughts we have all had, but never knew we needed a song for. Jessee’s passion for writing songs extends outside of just writing songs for her records and for other artists, but it also extends to working with Veterans. Jessee began working with an organization called “Operation Song” in the beginning of 2022 which allows her to write the stories of active and retired military Veterans with PTSD as a form of music therapy at a rehab center called Warrior’s Heart.
Jessee put out her first single in November of 2022 titled "Dive Bar Superstar" which earned her "Texas Song of the Week" on the TIR charts and another in January of 2023 called "You're Gonna Be Your Mama". Both are original songs that showcase her humor as well as her ability to seamlessly blend Country and Soul music. In 2023, Jessee dropped her first song to Texas Regional Radio called "Where He Ain't" which charted in the top 20's--not bad for a debut. Jessee released her first 7-song EP titled "Dive Bar Superstar", which she co-produced, in August of 2023 and is already planning on getting back in the studio to start the next project by December of 2023. With no plan of slowing down, Jessee Lee is sure to be a name you will be hearing for years to come.
