Actor

Lee
England Jr.

Lee England Jr. is classically trained but refers to himself as “The Soul Violinist” due to his entrenchment in the heartfelt sounds that evoke emotion and capture the ear. England adds viola, cello, bass, guitar, drums, piano and voice to his production resume, as well as boasting three music degrees (BS in Music Education, BS in Audio Engineering and a BA in Violin Performance) from Southern Illinois University. After graduating, Lee accepted a position as a music teacher in the Chicago Public School System. At the age 25, Lee found himself performing alongside Stevie Wonder; that same year he auditioned on Sean “Diddy” Combs television show Making the Band. Diddy named Lee the band’s secret weapon and with that exposure his fame and acclaim began to soar.

Lee was on tour with an artist, which led to a performance for Michael Jordan’s birthday. After his performance, Michael Jordan offered Lee an endorsement through the Jordan Brand to support his artistic endeavors, a spot reserved for athletes. This made him one of four non-athletes to represent the brand.

Lee now resides in Los Angeles. Making television appearances, performing at the most prestigious events, composing soundtracks, recording with his orchestra, collaborating with top artists, becoming a premiere talent for NBA related events, sharing the stage with A-list celebrities, performing internationally including performances in Africa, making headlines, raising money for his non-profit “Love Notes, LLC” by street performing and charitable partnerships, a commercial for the NFL Superbowl (in which he stared in as well as composed and produced the soundtrack) -- building his brand as an elite musician, composer and artist has become his work.
