Composing music since his early teens and throughout his childhood Bobby's musical influence came from many areas. Born into a family of music seems to be the reason music has been part of his life.
Bobby’s Father (along with his siblings) grew up playing music in their parent’s church in Tyler and Fort Worth Texas. Bobby was born in a small city in the heart of Texas. Bobby grew up in church listening to the bass, organ and piano players so Gospel was his first introduction to music. Around the age of 10 he began lessons in guitar for a short time. As he can recall "I don't think my mother had fun sitting outside in the car as 30 minute lessons would turn into an hour or so just from jamming to old 60's tunes, my teacher called me "Chuck Berry"! At 16 Bobby had a desire to start composing his own style of Jazz so he purchased his first keyboard and recorder and started composing. At 18 Bobby started playing the bass guitar at his church filling in for the main player who was no longer able due to illness but not knowing that this would become his main role. It was at this time, while visiting his Aunt in Killeen Texas that he met a gentleman named Terry Smith who owned a recording studio and was also a composer of instrumental melodies. Through their correspondence with Mr. Smith Bobby also put together his own studio (Power of Music Studio) and started Power of Music Records in late 1999. That same year Bobby released his first CD (Desire, Strength & Ambitions). The album was first featured by Sharon Jaye on KAZI(The Voice of Austin) in Austin Tx and The Phoenix Jazz network website along with several other online stations. The song Ocean Love was the first song featured from that album which is still available in many online downloading site (cdbaby,amazon,itunes, etc...) With the release of 2nd Phaze, Bobby was featured on smoothjazz.com receiving a great review from Sandy Shore. In 2010 Bobby followed up with yet another album titled Indeed Soulful..

From Sandy Shore
From the heart of Texas comes some very deep instrumental jazz from multi-instrumentalist, Bobby Lee. Just two hours northwest of the creative music scene in Austin, Brownwood is home to this talented musician who is celebrating the release of his new sophomore album 2ND PHAZE. His first, DESIRE, STRENGTH & AMBITION was released in late 1999 and featured by Sharon Jaye on KAZI (“The Voice of Austin”) and on The Phoenix Jazz Network as well as several other on-line radio stations. Bobby has been composing music since his teens and attributes his passion for the craft to growing up in a musical family and taking it all in at church. On 2nd PHAZE, Bobby plays bass, synth/keyboards, drums and all programming. This meaty collection offers up 15 tracks ranging from smooth jazz to “rural suburban” rhythms and “inner city” jams. It’s eclectic, involved and carefree… Bobby Lee says, "I love making music because it puts you in a variety of moods and good feelings and that's what each and every song on this project does!” We agree! 2nd Phaze was recorded at Lee’s own Power of Music Studios in Brownwood and released on his own label of the same name. Songs that stand out to our ears include the sweet and smooth, “Cherished Memories,” the delicate trance-like vibe of “Golden Summer,” the Lounge-bound, “Red Eye Flight,” and my favorite, the ‘up-in-your-grill,’ spicy “This Groove.” This is something from Texas that you’ll want to keep around way beyond 2008! ~SANDY SHORE
