Lee Gray
Since moving to New Zealand in August 2011, Lee has become one of the most sought after performers on the Auckland music scene. Playing an average of three to four shows every week, his live performances are well polished and never fail to impress. Lee’s career began 10 years ago in the UK, fronting the band Clarion for three years before forming the duo Woodface. As part of Woodface, he toured much of Europe before settling in Nice, in the South of France, in 2007. The duo played throughout the French Riviera for 3 years, opening one of the main stages for the annual music festival ‘Fete de la Musique’ in 2010.
At the beginning of 2012 Lee was asked to become new lead singer with one of New Zealand’s most well regarded corporate bands, The Kingpins. This has seen him play some of the top events at the most established venues Auckland has to offer. Aside from this he has been involved with several charities and fundraising events including, Starship Children’s Hospital, The Child Cancer Foundation and The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
At the moment Lee’s main focus is working on his new original material with the help of Pete Warren (ex Lip Service and DD- Smash). The pair have been playing as a ‘guitar/drums’ duo since November 2011, with
their energetic performances and well-crafted repertoire making them a favourite
amongst pub-goers. At the end of August Lee was asked to perform two new tracks
on TVNZ’s Good Morning show, receiving great feedback and a follow up slot to promote the new CD once available. With two albums to his name; Less is More (2006) and Flashes to Ashes (2011), he is in the process of writing his third album Smokescreens & Pipedreams.
Lee can be seen playing solo, duo and band gigs at various venues around New Zealand; from chilled out Sunday afternoon pub sessions, to private and corporate parties.
