My name is Monica Lee. I am a Canadian cisgendered queer woman and a sixteenth-generation settler on Coast Salish territories. I discovered 3.5 years ago that I have likely always been living with considerable hearing impairment. I wear hearing aids. I am a mother to two children ages 13 and 11yrs.

All my work as an artist and educator is centred in decolonization and historical honouring of musical traditions around the world. As a singer and writer, authenticity is at the core of all my offerings.

I am the owner, curriculum developer, instructor and video producer for Jump Into Music, a musicology for families early childhood music program in Vancouver BC. I teach 100 families a week world music in community centres and local parks. Jump Into Music has active social sites including a YouTube Channel and Facebook following.

I am in the midst of making my 4th full length album 'For My Love' that is a pivot genre to children' music. My last record titled 'Farewell' was released in July of 2020 with two supporting videos and is representative of my previous body of work as a Singer Songwriter drawing on Roots, Jazz and Country traditions.

I have been a part of the local music community here in Vancouver since 1998 and held a house gig at The Libra Room on Commercial drive for 15years. I have toured Western Canada, played the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Sasquatch Festival and more.
