Lee Lumley is a recording artist from Wrightsville, Georgia who began his musical journey in a small church in Central Georgia at the age of fourteen. It was during this time he began crafting his abilities and gravitating toward the music industry. After high school with only three and a half years of music experience, he began touring professionally throughout the southeastern United States. During this time Lee appeared on many television shows, radio shows and in churches and venues large and small. After his time on the road, Lee went into the local church ministry as a minister of music, serving in several churches throughout central Georgia.
It was during this time that Lee's passion for songwriting began while listening to artists like Stephen Curtis Chapman, Chris Rice, as well as, secular artists like John Mayer and Jack Johnson. These singer-songwriters had an ability to craft their lyrics in ways that were intriguing and met the listener where they lived. Lee desired to have this ability to touch lives through, as Chris Rice once wrote, "The Other Side of The Radio".
Despite his heartfelt desire to serve God in holiness, Lee struggled with overcoming sin in his life. After years of fighting and failing Lee came to his darkest point in life in 2011 when suffered through a divorce, job loss, financial collapse and the loss of his sister to cancer, Lee was at the point of decision. He knew that he had to decide between giving up or continuing to fight. That is when Lee decided to give up. For twenty-four years he had fought sin with no success and so, at the end of himself, he decided that His only hope was to get out of God's way and trust Him for his righteousness.
Over the last two years, God has shown himself faithful even when Lee was experiencing the pain of grief and loneliness. Through this time of healing, Lee has experienced an intimacy which can only be found in brokenness and is now living the life of an overcomer and proclaiming the simplicity of righteousness wherever he has an open ear.
In addition to his many musical talents which include, vocalist, pianist, drummer, acoustic guitarist and songwriter, Lee is also a preacher and author. His blog, Square Watermelons is written to help men struggling with failure learn how to let God do what they cannot.
Writing songs for over ten years Lee's songs have become increasingly more heartfelt and hopeful. His descriptive lyrics and vocal styling captures the listener painting vivid images which proclaim the loving nature of God. Always hopeful, always pointing toward heaven, Lee's songs are a call to worship and chronicle the many different revelations of God's character Lee has discovered over the past few years.
