tyles. These genres include; R&B, jazz, and pop with hints of rock and country. To Lee, it’s all about being positive and adhering to his motto, “Never tell me what I can’t do, unless you want me to tell you what to do with that statement!” Stowe is now making a strong statement with the release ofMusings Of The Quiet One.

The vast array of genres displayed on Musings Of The Quiet One is the direct result of Stowe’s artistic upbringing and education. He comes from a very musical family who molded him into a talented multi-instrumentalist. He learned piano as well as an assortment of wind and brass instruments while also evolving into an exceptional vocalist. Lee earned his bachelor's degree in Music Education in 1988 at Ithaca College, where he would eventually take a Master's Degree in the subject. While at Ithaca, he studied with many renowned instrumental instructors, includingRamon SalvatoreMary Ann CovertEdward Gobrecht. He took vocal lessons from Marion Hanson and studied jazz with Steve BrownDave Riley, and Dana Wilson.
In Musings Of The Quiet OneLee Stowe displays his artistic evolution as he harnesses his muses and pushes his music to the next level. However, bringing the album to fruition was a team effort, as he had the help of co-producer Bobby Farris and engineer Matt Vigna. In this project, Lee shows an uncanny ability to meld a myriad of influences such as of Earth, Wind,and FireChicago, and Stevie Wonder, just to name a few. Stowe’s crafty songwriting appears throughout each of the eight tracks, such as the funky R&B song “Queen Of Babble On.” Other key tracks include “We Groove It Simply,” with its mid-tempo jazz vibe and positive, poignant lyrics. “So In Love With You” is a doo-wop, acapella tune composed by Lee’s talented brother,Lane Stowe. Lee displays a jazz spin on a creative cover of Alice Cooper’s “You And Me.” OnApril 17th, 2016, Lee has been selected to attend the Direct 2 Exec Artist Experience NYC Edition to meet with A&R representatives from Atlantic Records. Lee Stowe is practicing what he teaches, taking his music from the classroom to the stage. With compositions that are always thoughtful, he proves there is wisdom within Musings Of The Quiet One

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
