Music Millennium

2016 album from the singer, songwriter and guitarist. "We all have heroes in our lives," says Play Like a Girl Records founder and recording artist Roni Lee. "Sometimes, it's a moment, or sometimes, it's a person. And we can all look back and find that moment, or we can remember that person." For Lee, it's all of the above - a head full of memories of a specific time and place, and of the people who became her friends and mentors. But in a larger sense, Heroes of Sunset Blvd, Roni's forthcoming release is about a homecoming. Lee began her career in Hollywood, CA, as lead guitarist in a novelty rock band Venus and the Razorblades, created by the legendary Kim Fowley. In the late 1970's, Los Angeles was the epicenter of rock and roll and Lee and her pals, a tight circle that included Joan Jett, Lita Ford and Cherie Currie (the three would eventually become the Runaways prior to Lee playing in Venus and the Razorblades) were making music under the spell of a true legend - the Svengali himself, Kim Fowley. I Want to Be Where the Boys Are, co-written by Lee and Fowley during that same late-1970's time period in Hollywood became a regular feature of the Runaways' live set. The song was included on the 1977 Live in Japan album, which has been certified Gold. I Wanna Be Where the Boys Are was also featured in the 2010 Runaways biopic and covered by the punk band F-13 on a Runaways tribute disc. "This new record was made with people I've always wanted to record with. They're legacy artists, and I love them, and they are still currently performing." Featured are Stryker keyboard artist Rick Randle, renowned drummer Kenny Aronoff, and her touring bassist, Lynn Sorensen, formerly of Bad Company. "This record represents an exciting time in my life - honoring the legacy artist but moving forward in the present. It's the musical answer to the question I get asked all the time," she says, namely, "Why did I get into music?" In a nod to Lee's amazing past, Heroes of Sunset Blvd was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studio. Today, Roni's vocals and guitar techniques span various genres. She has lent her talents to numerous recordings including gospel, funk and rock. Roni Lee's voice is powerful, and her skills as a rock guitarist are beyond compare. In a word, she rocks. Roni Lee truly plays like a girl. - Dave Good
