For drummer Lee Fish, it all started traveling on the road with his musician parents. He began performing with their band at the age of three, playing drums and singing throughout North America - all the way from Quebec to New York to Florida. His unique life experiences and talent led him to become one of the most highly sought after musicians worldwide. Fish has since performed not only coast to coast in America, but also in Japan, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Russia, Bolivia, China and Korea. After already having acquired his Bachelors degree at Berklee College of Music, he completed his Masters degree in 2017 at the prestigious Berklee Global Jazz Institute on a full scholarship studying under the likes of Danilo Pérez, Terri Lyne Carrington and Joe Lovano.
As a passionate drummer, singer, composer, and dedicated educator, Fish is constantly working with fellow musicians, artists and mentors to challenge boundaries and bring engaging experiences to his audience. His dynamic touch on the drums has been called remarkable, and his melodic compositions never fail to move listeners. At the center of his artistic practice is energy: constantly positive and always soulful.
Lee Fish plays regularly with various musicians and groups including the Jason Palmer Collective, Nadia Washington, Noah Preminger, Mike Tucker, the Evgeny Lebedev “World Trio,” Mike Thomas, the Tucker Antell Group, and Jiri Nedoma. His consistent playing at the historic Wally’s Cafe with Jason Palmer’s Band, has earned him much respect in the Boston Jazz scene. He has played as a sideman on over fifty records and worked with artists including Esperanza Spalding, Danilo Perez, Gary Burton, Charles McPherson, Warren Wolf, George Garzone, Hal Crook, Greg Osby, David Gilmore, Julian Lage, Uri Caine, Ben Street and many more.
