Nashville Recording Artist Singer/Songwriter Lee Newton, came from humble beginnings. Having seen her share of hard times growing up in Canton, North Carolina, she started singing in church when she was five years old when her Mother would take her. Lee’s love of music grew as a child when her Daddy played country classics like Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and Patsy Cline around the house.
Lee’s father, a cab driver, taught her to play the guitar at age seven and they would sing together while she rode around town with him in his taxi going on calls. “My Daddy, who named me Brenda Lee after the amazing country singer, would always tell me one day you will be playing at the Grand Ole Opry and from that point on I knew I wanted to be a performer.”
Heavily influenced by legendary musicians like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, The Judds Lorrie Morgan Susan Tedischi and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lee’s personal sound is a mix between traditional Country and raspy Blues with an added Southern Rock flare.
Lee has opened or performed with legends Ronnie Milsap, Ronnie McDowell, T Graham Brown, Diamond Rio, The Gatlin Brothers, TG Sheppard, Edwin McCain, Leona Williams, & more.
Lee recently appeared on WSM Circle Access TV Coffee, Country & Cody with Bill Cody, Fox Rock Review with Eric Dahl, NBC Today in Nashville, and a host of radio interviews promoting her music.
Lee has recorded four albums in two years 2021 JMA Album of the Year, “UNDAMAGED”, 2022 JMA Album of the year, “UNLEESHED”, her cover album of love songs “FROM THE HEART” and her newest and first first Gospel album called, CROSSROADS featuring Rhonda Vincent, T.
