In November 1999 Bobby releases his first CD Desire,Strength & Ambitions. The album was first featured by Sharon Jaye on KAZI(The Voice of Austin) in Austin Tx and The Phoenix Jazz network website along with several other online stations. The song Ocean Love was the first song featured.
Bobby has been composing music since his early teens. Throughout his childhood his musical influence came from many areas. Coming from a family of music seems to be the reason music has been apart of his life. Bobby's father and siblings all grew up playing music in their parents church in Tyler and Fort Worth Texas. Bobby was born Robert D. Lee on January 2 1976 in Brownwood, a small city in the heart of Texas. At 16 Bobby brought his first keyboard and recorder and started composing his own style of instrumental jazz. He grew up in church listening to the bass,organ and piano players so Gospel was his first introduction to music. Around the age of 10 he took lessons in guitar for a short time. As Bobby recalls "I don't think my mother had fun sitting outside in the car as 30 minute lessons would turn into an hour or so just from jamming to old 60's tunes, my teacher called me "Chuck Berry"!
At 18 he started playing the bass guitar at his church filling in for the main player who was no longer able due to illness but not knowing that this would be his main role.
