Bio

Janice Jo Lee is a Korean-Canadian, folk-roots musician, poet, and theatre artist from Kitchener, Haldimand Treaty territory. Lee is a powerful vocalist who creates soundscapes and songs using her voice, guitar, trumpet and looping pedal. She is a hard femme queer radical known for being disarmingly hilarious, off-the-cuff and fearlessly honest on stage. Lee’s new album Sing Hey is a vocal and acoustic showcase with songs themed on feminism, poverty, and friendship. She has toured across Canada as a solo act and facilitated over one hundred workshops on storytelling, songwriting and activism.

In 2015 Lee was the City of Kitchener’s Artist in Residence, received the Oktoberfest Woman of the Year Award in Arts and Culture, and received an Ontario Women’s Directorate Leading Women, Building Communities Award. Currently she is is recording her third studio album and writing her one-woman spoken word musical comedy called Janice Lee and the White Supremacy Smackdown. A documusical about her journey titled The Legend of Sing Hey, directed by Becca Redden is set to release in Spring 2017
