Montreal-based author and interpreter L.Teez was born in 1995. Nurtured and surrounded in music since an early age, L.Teez‘s formal musical training began in grade school where he learned to play both the trumpet and the trombone. By the age of 16, he began to dabble in rap music.
L. Teez finds his voice and his expression through an eclectic range of musical styles. His words ebb and flow in smooth torrents of hip hop and jazz that combine in a style all his own.
With the rise of New School hip hop in 2012, Lee decides to put his thoughts into words. His writing express both his views of the world and of personal experiences. His words are filled with deep, genuine and thought-provoking emotion. As his expression matures and his writing takes shape, L. Teez turns his words into freestyle performance. From there begins his love for performing before an audience. In 2013 he performs at the Divan Orange and the MEG /Festival. Then, in 2016 he embarks on creative collaborations with Canadian producers such as Hug Signori and Jay Century. In November 2016, L. Teez toured throughout France as a featured artist at the Tartine Festival. The tour took him on stops in Chambery, Bordeaux and Marmande.
L. Teez‘s first EP will be released early 2017.
