BOP STOP at The Music Settlement says
The Jared Lees Band will be kicking off their first show of 2017 at the BOP STOP in Clevleand. This bass heavy modern jazz/ fusion band features Justin Tibbs on sax, Tim Mirth on guitar, Drew PenCook on drums, and Jared Lees on bass.

Jared Lees is a solo instrumentalist from Akron, Ohio with a dynamic and unique approach to the bass guitar. His music comes from a love of jazz blended with cinematic themes and atmospheric styles of music. Live, Jared uses a multitude of techniques, effects, and looping to create a one-of-a-kind sonic experience. Jared’s latest release, Landscapes, features his signature solo sound paired with a string section and full band. “Jared lays out the soundscapes, which create a strong emotional connection for the listener… His use of tone is a compositional tool that is used with sensitivity and creativity… His fretless playing is superb!” says Bass Musician Magazine. The Devil Strip Magazine calls Jared’s album After Thought a “blend of jazz, R&B, funk and soul elements, fused with astral melodies.” Bass Players United writer Stanton Lawrence describes Jared as “effortlessly combining elements of jazz, indie, and finger-style guitar into his bass playing” and says “he pushes the limits of what it means to be a bassist in the modern world of music.” In addition to After Thought, Jared has also released three other solo albums. He has been featured or written about in Bass Musician Magazine, Bass Players United, No Treble, Bass Guitar, The Devil Strip, and The Akron Beacon Journal.

“Solo bass has been gaining a greater level of acceptance over the recent past. Pathfinders like Michael Manring, Darren Michaels, Victor Wooten, and many more, have helped to grow an audience for solo bass. You can now add Jared Lees to this illustrious list of solo bass contributors”– Bass Musician Magazine.
