From this release, I was contacted by a Hypnotherapists write, record, and produce music for Hypnotherapy projects. I developed "RELAXOLOGY", music that I could customize the recording to mix the therapist voice onto. Since then I have completed many recording projects for 4 therapists on a regular basis.
I have granted Paul Royter, a Hypnotic Comedian, license to use music clips from "Imagine This" in his world traveling comedy show, and shortly after, I wrote and recorded the theme music for his introduction to the show. This was a 2-year contract, which ended in the year 2003.
Since the year 2003, I have become a member of SOCAN, and worked with several aspiring local musicians to record demo projects. I am involved with a local group called "One Odd Sock" which is a cover band of top 40's, includes Rush, and many other groups. In the past few years I have been involved musically with local charitable events including most recently, the Red Cross for the Tsunami Disaster where the band, One Odd Sock, headlined the event and raised over $1000.00 for the organization.
In my spare time I teach a single mother's daughter basic guitar for free and give lessons to four others for a mere $10.00 per lesson. I have had these students for a minimum of 2 to 4 years and I don't worry too much if they forget to pay. I find a greater sense of accomplishment if I can pass on the knowledge of music to others who are willing to listen and are inspired by me.
How It All Began
I took up the guitar in grade 6 after being inspired by my public school teacher. Then in grade 8, I discovered RUSH: "All The Worlds A Stage" Live recording, this recording drove me to excel (some say) at my playing abilities.
How It Grew
I started out using a stereo tape deck to record songs useing the left channel to record one track of the guitar, and then record the second track on the right channel. Then I found a 4-track tape recorder, and quickly growing out of that I went to an to the 8-track recorder where I began to put complete songs together.
I ideas would recorded and list of original songs were produced, and then re-record the songs that he wanted to put on a CD. The finishing touches were completed around 1996, and finally Lee's first CD "Atmospheric Conditions" was born.
The music that I personally enjoys is RUSH and music that provokes thought. I am inspired by thunderstorms, the beat of thunder, sunsets/sunrise, etc. Recently won a spot with a local Rock station in Barrie ON "Rock 95" where one of his songs my recorded and placed on a compilation CD with other local artists. Go figure!
