Greg Lee 

Piano | Vocals

Most know me as a professional musician, piano player and singer (DJ, too)  but that is only a part of who I am. 

 

When I'm not on stage entertaining I love spending time with my family, which includes my 10 year old son, Boe. Working mostly evenings allows me to spend time at home, so we play, a LOT. We love playing with LEGOS, watching Star Wars movies, and listening to records on vinyl.

My wife and I have traveled to southern India many times, providing aid to those in need.

 

I'm an avid songwriter, have dozens of songs published, with sales at the 1 million mark. 

 

I love making lifetime connections with the people for whom I've worked and I love getting to know people. I love to be challenged professionally, and push myself to be the best human I can be.

 

Lastly, I love being a part of The Chuck Taylors.
