Artists Go Deep On Creative Spirit Radio 

BURBANK, CA – Celebrities such as the hilarious comedian Luenell, actor Ernest Thomas and music executive and recording artist Jay King have been among the guests on the newly launched radio show called “Creative Spirit Radio” hosted by artist and entrepreneur William Hanford Lee Jr.. “Creative Spirit Radio” is being billed as a show where “faith meets function.”

Lee is a singer/songwriter from Sacramento who runs an entertainment management company and has had music in films such as “The Taking Of Pelham 123” and on TV shows such as “Burn Notice”. “On Creative Spirit Radio we talk about the spiritual side of creativity,” Lee says. “I think, that in a lot of ways, being our most creative self is about being our best self. This is one hour for talented and prolific people to talk about their spiritual journey and how it impacts the work that they do.”

So far the show has covered topics such as books that inspire, determination, and fear. Creative Spirit Radio can be heard live on Sundays from 4:00 pm -5:00 pm PST on www.BlogTalkRadio.com/creativespiritradio. The website is www.creativespiritradio.com.

Happy Holidays From PapaLee Music

What a year!

2010 gave me the incredible gift of fatherhood. My gorgeous 6-month-old daughter Lily blows my mind daily. I am constantly being captivated by her laugh and the sweet smiles of my lovely wife Maria. I hope you enjoy some of the photos in the slideshow below, and as always please feel free to repost (using the Share this button) and to leave comments!

2010 also brought the release of my debut album SOULvival – and the response has been AMAZING. I appreciate all of the support that I’ve received and I’ve learned so much in the process of stepping out as an artist. Look for a couple singles and music videos to drop in 2011.

My client and my wonderful friend (who I also manage) – Luenell has been tearing it up in 2010 as well. Her star is steadily rising and I am extremely proud of all the hard work she’s been putting in.

We ALL need one another to make it happen so please continue to support independent artists and entertainers. I have been exceedingly blessed to be able to do what I love for a living – however the NEXT level belongs to those of us who manage to combine our collective talents and resources to make a dramatic impact on the cultural landscape… THAT’s what it’s about for us in 2011.

Have a Merry Christmas and an exceedingly prosperous 2011.
