Leee John

“I started thinking about doing my first solo album ten years ago, and even then I really wanted it to be a Jazz record. Over the years, I’ve written certain songs that felt were right for a jazz-flavoured album but I just didn’t feel that I was ready, either vocally or experience-wise...” So speaks Leee John, world-renowned recording artist and performer best known as the lead singer for Imagination, the internationally popular pop, dance and soul team whose sales of CDs, albums, singles, videos and DVDs now exceeds some twenty-million copies, starting with the double gold LPs “Body Talk” and “In The Heat Of The Night” and encompassing the classic hits “Just An Illusion,” “Music And Lights” and “Changes.”
