Jazz | Original
In high school, Lee cultivated her gift in singing and playing the trumpet, and she also realized her love for music production. She was a member of both the world-renowned Baltimore City College Choir as well as the Baltimore City College Marching Knights. With the choir and band she was able to travel all over the east coast performing on a weekly basis. During her time at “City,” she was inspired to further her career as a performer at Temple University, where she received her Bachelor’s in Vocal Jazz Performance in May 2014, studying under Philadelphia’s own jazz legend, Joanna Pascale.
During her time at Temple, Lee Mo met trumpeter and Vertical Current bandleader Christopher Stevens and soon became one of the band’s primary featured vocalists. The relationship with Vertical Current has afforded Lee Mo the opportunity to open for artists such as Robert Glasper, Eric Roberson, Frank McComb, Derrick Hodge, and Anita Wilson, to name a few. She has also lent background vocals for gospel artists Jonathan Nelson and Jessica Reedy, and R&B singer Vivian Green. Young in age, but mature in sound, Lee Mo knows what she wants from the music, and her performances provide nothing less than an authentic, free, and spiritual experience.
