Roni Lee

Roni Lee

For Los-Angeles based artist Roni Lee, music has always been the perfect vessel of true, unadulterated expression. With a life journal full of memories and experiences that span a highly-decorated 40-year career in music, Lee is a prime example of a self made woman in rock and roll who has managed to transcend boundaries, subvert expectations, and always live life to the fullest.

This year Roni is gearing up to release her long-awaited EP Doll Face this spring, as well as a vinyl release scheduled for later this year - both on her own imprint Play Like a Girl Records. To get a preview of what you'll hear on Doll Face, check out Roni's YouTube Channel @RoniLee to see videos for "Black Valentine," a spirited rocker about the International Day of Love and "Prisoner," a sober song on addiction from a parent / family's perspective. Roni co-wrote Prisoner with Lynn Sorensen (former bassist for Paul Rodgers and Bad Company) who also duets with Roni on the song.

Known for her scorching guitar skills, Roni will support her new musical offerings via a U.S. tour coming in the fall. Tickets for her live shows will be announced soon. Check her website for the latest news and tour updates.

Roni began her career without hesitation, as she relocated to Hollywood, CA at the age of 17. It wasn't long before she snapped up a position as lead guitarist in the rock band Venus and the Razorblades, a project produced by Kim Fowley. Los Angeles was the epicenter of rock and roll, and Roni Lee found herself sharing stages with the likes of Van Halen, the Ramones, Steppenwolf, The Motels, and Blondie in the late '70s.

"We were Kim's little group of teenage musicians. He was always trying to evoke that teen angst and rebellion in us". Unsurprisingly, Fowley didn't have to try that hard.

1977 saw Lee and Fowley co-write the Runaways' track "I Want to Be Where the Boys Are". The song appeared on the band's "Live in Japan" album, which went on to reach certified Gold. Over the years, she has been signed to labels Island Records, L.A., Mushroom Records, and Canada (Heart Label), has been nominated 5 years in a row for the Best San Diego Rock Band at the San Diego Music Awards, and not to mention -- has rocked the stage with countless talented musicians. Additionally, she has been featured on the sci-fi TV show Defiance as a vocalist.

Roni loves to play and is a sought after guitarist. When not performing with her own band, you can find her jamming with other musicians or performing with supergroup Keneally/Grano/Nash/Lee. With plenty more musical moments to create, Roni Lee invites you to join her. Head to for bookings, social links, and more.


Sarah Parson (of Rum River Cult)

Sarah Parson (of Rum River Cult)

Rum River Cult est. circa 2018, is a Portland based three piece band, with all of its members originally hailing from east of the Rockies. Lou Lanning from Kentucky, Sarah Parson of Minnesota, and newest to the PNW, Colin Ringkamp from Pennsylvania are the cult, here to recruit you into this bizarre new world of Covid-limbo with reminiscent tones of the 60's and 70's and an irreverent flair. With no rules to song format, lyrics both pessimistically whimsical yet heartfelt, these three implore you to join Rum River Cult in 2022 for their new lineup and content to come.
