My journey started years ago in 2005 with fellow guitarist Nina Cohen and our band, Deny. From there, I went my separate way and began writing alone in the attempt to develop my sound. And I did. I began recording under the name Lee Wycked and have also been in some cover bands like Blink 181, Foxtrot Mike Lima and Nasty Dirty Things. As of July 2013, I am currently writing music with my fellow Tremonti enthusiast, Victor. Hopefully we have some new material out soon!
It all started with Korn's Freak on a Leash single back in '98. The thundering sound of that wicked bass caught Lee's attention and sent her on this musicial journey she travels today. Quickly indulging herself with countless hard rock/metal outfits of the late 90's, Lee's interest in the "dark" side of music grew exponently, causing her to pick up the guitar at the age of 14.
At first, Lee began her studies with classical music which eventually led to mexican folk music and then to jazz. Involved in various musical groups, Lee traveled around, not only Austin but parts of Texas as well, playing for large crowds, bringing her love of music to those who would listen. Despite her obvious talent and success in all of these genres, Lee still wasn't satisfied nor would she be until her desire to share her own music and not just cover songs could be fulfilled. Taking a break from the music scene in early 2004 proved to be exactly what Lee needed. Confident and ready to face whatever endeavors lie ahead, Lee created a guitar duo which would eventually come to be called Deny. Sadly, this duo didn't seem to fit Lee's idea or passion to her music, and therefore left the group in late 2005. Bolder than ever, Lee now faces her journey alone.
I do not play live currently.
