Talk with Mr. Carr will interview R&B recording artist Lee Carr. Lee is my 2nd cousin from my dad's side of the family. Lee will talk about his life.Singer/songwriter, Lee Carr, is ready to make his mark. After several years of growing as an artist and perfecting his writing and producing skills.Armed with his nascent talent and tireless spirit the native New Yorker is gearing up to hit the scene running with his eponymous debut. Writing and producing the majority of the album himself, as well as serving as co-executive producer on the project.Born and raised in New York, 21-year-old Lee Carr has leapt many personal and professional hurdles before finally landing safely. Beginning with a rocky childhood that found him in foster care from the age of two to more recent battles with labels that didn't quite believe in his vision, Lee hasn't exactly had it easy. "I've had all kinds of bad experiences in my younger days," Lee honestly admits. "I was in the foster care system and various group homes for years. I got into fights with other kids, but I truthfully believe that those troubled times helped make me a stronger person." Lee remembers, "Back in the day, there was a spot on 42nd Street called Soul Cafe, and they had a singing contest every week where the winner got $300. I thought I would go in and win on the first night, but it wasn't that easy." Afterward, Lee's talents also secured him a slot on Showtime at the Apollo, where he performed the Stevie Wonder hit 'That Girl.Now, Lee is more determined to be a breakout R&B man; and without a doubt, that "shooting for the stars" resolve can be heard in his records. From the player swagger of the surefire club hit "What's It Gonna Be," the synth seduction of "She's A Keeper" and the sexy, slow dance groove that is "Breathe," Lee Carr has only just begun winning our hearts.
