Conor Lee (he/him), a native to Fergus Falls, Minnesota, is an active performer, composer, and educator. He earned his Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies from Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) in 2015 and has been teaching privately for the past 10 years. Conor served as an adjunct instructor in the commercial music program at MSUM from 2019-2021 where he co-directed the Commercial Music Ensemble and taught guitar for non-majors.
Possessing a diverse fluency in several musical styles has allowed Conor to perform professionally across the Midwest and open for Grammy nominated country artist Deana Carter, Little Texas, Craig Morgan, Lake Street Dive, Anderson East, Your Smith, Reina Del Cid, and Moon Hooch. As a student, he has also been fortunate to share the stage and study with Pete McCann, Denis DiBlasio, Connaitre Miller, Bryon Stripling, and Kenni Holmen. Conor can be heard on recordings by Jessica Vines (pop), Mic Jordan (hip hop), Division of Masters (doom metal/free jazz) and music released under his own name.
Having relocated to the Twin Cities in late 2021, Conor can be found exploring the metro and its rich music and arts community, devouring Korean food, and working on releasing new original music.
