NEW YORK, NY — To say that Grammy Award-winning Will Lee has done it all in the music business would be quite an understatement. Perhaps best known as bassist for over two decades on The Late Show with David Letterman, he holds the world record for longest-running bassist on late night television. Will has also lent his considerable talents to well over 1,600 pop, jazz and rock albums including those by Mariah Carey, Carly Simon, Steely Dan, James Brown, Cat Stevens, Ringo Starr, D'Angelo, Frankie Valli, Laura Nyro, Michael Bolton, Spyro Gyra, Gloria Estefan & the Miami Sound Machine, Sadao Watanabe, Pat Metheny, Nancy Wilson, Luther Vandross, Cyndi Lauper, Ray Davies, Chaka Khan, Go Hiromi, George Benson, Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Ray Davies, Cher, Michael Franks, Billy Joel, Weather Report, Al Green, the Brecker Brothers, Akiko Yano, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, David Sanborn, Ryuji Sakamoto, SMAP, Ricky Martin, Natalie Cole and Gato Barbieri.
Will has sung and played on an equal number of TV and radio commercials as well as movie soundtracks. He has toured with Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Horace Silver, The Brecker Brothers and Herbie Mann. Will also has the enviable position of having performed or recorded with all of the Beatles, which is thrilling for a guy who is a founding member of the world’s premier Beatles band, The Fab Faux!
He is an inductee in the Musician’s Hall of Fame in Nashville TN, and has a permanent display there (www.musicianshalloffame.com). Will released a CD of his own, Oh!, and a jazz album, BirdHouse, with his father, Bill. Both are available on iTunes and at CDBaby.com.
