Lee Ferris hails from Los Angeles. He is the son of a Cinematographer and a Singer/Painter. Ferris grew up building guitars and playing guitar and piano from an early age. He studied jazz guitar at Berklee College of Music and opera at California State University Northridge respectively.
Performed for audiences across the world in styles ranging from jazz to folk to classical vocal repetoire at venues including Carnegie Hall in New York City and the St. Nikolai Church in Prague, Czech Republic.
Ferris has an amazingly huge and unique singing voice. His songs are whimsical and profound. They play with the english language like a Harlem Globetrotter plays with the ball on a fastbreak. Lee is an acrobat of song. His songs fly us through multiple rings of fire, spin us as we ascend to the trapeze, drop us down to ride upon the elephant’s back, only to ultimately wedge us between the tack strings of the organgrinder. Story songs, gypsy-jazz grooves, hip hop driven blues tunes, and a whole mess of cosmic lyrics to send your head a reelin'.
