Ranee Lee

Ranee Lee is now celebrating thirty-five years in Montreal, Canada, where she enjoys a successful, multi-faceted career as one of Canada's most popular jazz vocalists, an award-winning actress, a songwriter, and a proud author of children's books. Ranee has recorded twelve albums for Justin Time, a proud discography of acclaimed recordings that feature some of the finest jazz musicians of our time among its sidemen.

A Dora Mavor Moore Award winning actress, Ranee starred in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, Canada's first production of the musical portrayal of Billie Holiday. Her subsequent recording, Deep Song, featured label mate Oliver Jones and well as Milt Hinton, bassist with Billie Holiday. The recording was met with acclaim, bringing Ranee's voice to the attention of jazz fans and concert producers throughout the world.
