Jim Lee’s story began in a small Inuit village just outside of Nome, Alaska. Born to a prominent spiritual chief and a Korean mother, Jim recalls his first experience with live performance. “Dad used to bless the elders when they would go out to sea to harvest walrus blubber during the winter ice freeze. To pass time I used to bang on our families six hundred year old ceremonial drum, in this case a caribou skin. I was just six years old at the time, but i knew I was hooked on sound and ever since then I’ve been on a never-ending quest to recreate the authentic sound of those ancient indigenous instruments. This has been my driving force and it’s brought me to where I am today, trying to find the best audio products conceivable and connect with the great Inuit ancestors of my past. I love you, Dad!”
