2nd Phaze (The New CD 2007)
Bobby Lee - Bass,synth/keyboard,composer and producer Following the release of his first CD (Desire,Strength & Ambitions), Bobby is releasing his second musical CD titled '2nd Phaze'. Bobby has been composing music since his early teens. Throughout his childhood his musical influence came from many areas. Coming from a family of music seems to be the reason music has been apart of his life. Bobby's father and siblings all grew up playing music in their parents church in Tyler and Fort Worth Texas. Bobby was born on January 2 1976 in Brownwood, a small city in the heart of Texas. He 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 took lessons in guitar for a short time. As Bobby recalls '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 brought his first keyboard and recorder and started composing his own style of instrumental jazz. He also shared a love of music with a close friend Kenneth Byers whom he nicknamed 'Million Dollor Hands' for his musical talents. To this day they still share the same love of music and musical ideas. At 18 he 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 be his main role. It was at this time,while visiting his Aunt in Killeen Texas, that Bobby meet a gentleman named Terry Smith who owned a recording studio and was also a composer of instrumental melodies. Through his correspondence with Mr. Smith, Bobby also put together his own studio that he named Power of Music Studio and started Power of Music Records. In late 1999 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. The album is still availible in many online downloading site (amazon,itunes, etc...) With his new release Bobby states 'I always want to touch people and music lovers alike with my music. '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'!
