From Rancho Cucamonga California, The Lee Sisters – Lise and Emi Lee!
Sisters in real life and self-taught, The Lee Sisters have been performing throughout California and Hawaii since 2015.
Their ukulele adventure took off in earnest in January 2015 when they were invited by Kanile’a Ukulele to play at the NAMM show in Anaheim California, the world’s largest music convention. Since then, they’ve been invited to perform at dozens of festivals and events throughout California and Hawaii, including the Aloha Concert Series, E Hula Mau, and the Heritage of Aloha Festival in Santa Fe Springs California (where Lise was the winner of their 2015 ukulele competition). In Hawaii, they have performed as guests of Bryan Tolentino and Herb Ohta Jr. at the Kani Ka Pila Grille, the Moana Terrace at Marriott Waikiki as guests of Alan Akaka and the Keawe Ohana Show, and most recently at Disney’s Aulani Resort as guests of The Makaha Sons.
They are very proud to be supported by Ohana Ukuleles, and the Sandwich Islands Network (SIN) Radio.
Lise is completing her final year at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), majoring in business administration. Emi recently graduated from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), where she majored in mechanical engineering and was also president and hula choreographer for the UCSD Hawaii Club. After graduation, Emi was hired at Walt Disney Imagineering in Orlando Florida, to pursue a career designing future Disney attractions. And now, she is now a full-time Disney Imagineer!
The Lee Sisters have recently completed their debut EP album, “Uke Shoes”, available on Apple Music, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, and www.ukulise.com
