Jazz/blues, but better known for previous Hard Rock / Heavy Metal career.
Still known as Canada's Metal Queen. Born: Karen Lynn Greening in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. She adopted the name Lee Aaron when she joined a band with that name as backup singer and keyboardist. In 1984 she signed with Attic Records, who issued the studio album Metal Queen, the video for which was one of the first in heavy rotation on the fledgling MuchMusic channel.
Sometime after 1992's Powerline, a Best Of, she dropped the false name. She has since moved to the west coast, and re-adopted the moniker, now performing jazz and blues oriented music. (At time of writing, you can here the latest albums at her site (external link).)
Lee and her husband John are have two children together, a girl and a boy.

Contemporaries and influences
Cancelled a planned tour opening for Blue Oyster Cult in 1985 to headline her own tour. Pity, she and Buck Dharma are about the same size.
