INFO: From his early teenage days Lee Everton was fascinated with Black Music. Searching for the right song and the perfect sound he travelled to Jamaica when he was 18 to spend a year at the Jamaican School of Music in Kingston. The sessions with musicians from all over the Caribbean had a lasting impact on him. Working later at the Quad Recording Studios in New York he assisted sessions with Alicia Keys, Kanye West and Celia Cruz. Only recently he attended a workshop for songwriters in Los Angeles where he met the successful songwriter Penny Framstad who offered him to coach him on two of his songs. A chance he took gladly.
