Lee Wallace

Lee Wallace was born in Toronto and began playing guitar at the age of six, learning from his father, Steve Wallace, a Toronto based jazz bassist. As a teenager he studied improvisation and harmony with Mark Eisenman and guitar with David Occhipinti. He later continued his jazz studies at Humber college and Barry Harris workshops. Professionally he has performed in major cities throughout North America and abroad, and has appeared with many top Canadian and international musicians, including Mike Murley, George Evans, Mark Eisenman, Pat Labarbera and Scott Hamilton. He can be heard regularly in Toronto, both in an accompanying role, and as the leader of his trio.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
