History & Biography
Lee Aaron (born Karen Greening) was a travelling musician crisscrossing Canada by the time her first album was released in 1982. Lee had begun her musician life as a keyboardist.

She had been behind the keyboard at first. This band would begin to tour and the newly named person Lee Aaron would be pulled from behind the keyboard to front the act now.

Fresh off her Lee Aaron & The Swingin' Barflies jazz album/tour in 1999, the Canadian singer was working on a new 'rock' album for release in 2000. Some previously recorded tracks would be omitted.
