Crissy Lee

Crissy grew up in a family of musicians, and was inspired from early on by jazz big bands. We hear her great enthusiasm for the many genres and fusions she loves to perform and coordinate through a busy and vibrant career. We learn how she's worked with determination and strong individual drive to succeed in a male dominated profession as a self-taught drummer. This is a profile which Crissy hopes to raise further to actively inspire a younger female generation.
