George Douglas Lee

George Douglas Lee has been writing and performing music since 1972. He joined the band "Uncle Jak" that year and found a successful career playing all over Texas. "Uncle Jak" played many of Lee's original songs. Lee assembled a group of musicians to back him in the studio for his first 45 rpm single "Sweet and Brutal", quickly followed by the release of "Elayne", and a later single "Made To Be Played". Following these solo projects with session musicians, he formed the band "White Heat", which became "GEO", culminating in the production of the vinyl LP"Made To Be Played". The band went on the road throughout Texas and New Mexico to promote the album.

GEO disbanded in 1983, but Lee has continued writing songs and recording.

He created a live stage venue in Sugar Land, Texas called "The Electric Theatre" . He produced his original plays and musicals. He has been inducted into the Texas Playwright's Hall of Fame, is a published (Lazy Bee Scripts, U.K.) and produced playwright. Three of his plays are available as thirty minute audiobook versions on his CD "Monster Musicals", which includes the award winning "Frankenstein - The Monster Musical".

Lee wrote the screenplay for the film "Laughing Boy", which is currently available on NetFlix.

Returning to his hometown of Galveston, Texas, he began playing a series of acoustic concerts, and writing new work in earnest.

He is the resident artists at G. Lee Art Gallery displays his paintings, children's books and music. Lee also conducts Galveston history tours on the Island, and is prominently featured in the film "America's Greatest Distaster", an hour long documentary currently on the Smithsonian Channel.

Music is Lee's first love, and he continues to perform with his current band 'Noise Poets".
