About Lee Aaron
Lee Aaron. She is one of Canada’s most iconic vocalists, a songwriter, producer, and fearless re-inventor. She was one of the very first women writing and performing hard rock, releasing her first album (The Lee Aaron Project) at the age of only nineteen. Her sophomore release, 1984’s Metal Queen solidified Aaron as a trailblazer for women in rock in the 80’s with the title track – an anthem of feminine empowerment and shout-out against the sexism toward women in that genre – garnering her respect and legions of rock fans around the globe. Over the years it has become an enduring anthem of empowerment for men and women alike. Aaron went on to work with producers like Bob Ezrin (Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd) Peter Coleman (Blondie, Pat Benatar) and appear on the Scorpions Savage Amusement album singing BGs after producer Dieter Dierks heard her perform live while recording her 1987 concert in Mannheim, Germany with his mobile studio. Later releases, 1989’s Bodyrock and 1991’s Some Girls Do both reached multi-platinum status and included chart-toppers like “Whatcha Do To My Body” and “Hands On.” She’s shared stages with Heart, Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, Suzi Quatro, Sinead O’Connor, Mötley Crüe, Van Morrison, and more. Chart Magazine proclaimed Aaron’s Bodyrock LP (1989) one of the 20 most influential Canadian albums of the 80’s with Alanis Morrisette and Shania Twain both “under Aaron’s influence.”
Seventeen albums into her enduring career, with multiple accolades, including 10 JUNO nominations, CMPA Songwriters, Much Music Video, Music Express, and Toronto Music Awards, she’s still going strong. In 2016 Aaron was honored with a permanent star on the Arts Walk of Fame in her former hometown (Brampton) for her contribution to Canadian Music.
