The Conversation Hub: Worship Artist Mike Lee
APRIL 16, 2014 BY MARC VAILLANCOURT
As a musician myself, I always enjoy the opportunity to be in conversation with other artists. This week, worship artist Mike Lee joins the conversation. Mike’s new project, Awakening Hearts, is scheduled for release on May 1, 2014. It was a pleasure to have him share some thoughts on his latest projects.
About Mike Lee
Born and raised in Fort Wayne, IN, Lee comes from a musical family and started his own music journey at the age of fourteen, when he picked up his dad’s guitar and started playing. At the same time, Lee started jotting down his spiritual thoughts that became the early stages of his songwriting career. Shortly after that, Lee began leading small group worship with his twin brother, which led to leading prayers meetings and early morning worship throughout northeastern Indiana. Lee became a youth worship leader while attending college, and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in 2010. A year later, Lee became the worship leader at Liquid Church in Fort Wayne and in 2012, he formed a band and started performing his own songs regionally with great success. After sharing the stage with such artists as, Sidewalk Prophets, Audrey Assad, Love and the Outcome, and Hyland, Lee collaborated with Ed and Scott Cash for two years before recording his first national release, Awakening Hearts, in Nashville, TN. Lee is married and his wife, Michelle, performs with Lee’s band and manages his career. They have one son, Preston, who is two-years-old.
