The Tim Lee Band was, "The Tim Lee Trio" at it's inception. The Tim Lee Band as it is known now, was formed during late 2020.
Tim met Will James through Monday night jam sessions at Posdersville Pub. He met Doug Henry also at the Pub during a performance. Tim wanted to do a side band gig to offset his solo performances so he asked if they would like to play with him and they both said yes.
The TLB plays once or twice a month. Be sure to check the calendar for upcoming dates.
Vocals & Guitar
Tim was born and raised in Greenville, SC and began playing guitar at the age of 12. Some of his earliest musical memories are of his dad putting a stack of records on the stereo every night before bed.
His early influences were Buck Owens and the Buckaroos, Hank Williams, Sr., Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Connie Smith, and countless others. His earliest guitar influences were Don Rich, Steve Morse, Duane Allman, Gary Rossington, and Ace Frehely.
He formed his first band at the age of 14, finding it a passion, he continued to play in several area bands throughout the next two decades. After a short hiatus to start a family, he returned to playing at local clubs and regional venues during the 1990s. With a desire to learn more still, he attended Southern Wesleyan University at the age of 40 receiving his bachelors degree in music with a concentration in classical guitar in 2006.
He began performing musical theater in 2010 at Centrestage Theatre, The Historic Pelzer Auditorium, The Warehouse, and The Greenville Little Theater.
These days you can find Tim performing an eclectic mix of acoustic driven Americana, Southern Rock, and Blues, with the occasional fiery guitar solo both as a solo artist and with the Tim Lee Band all over South Carolina and southeastern US.
