Spotlight On: Zee

I was sent an email on an artist named Zolorale {za-lora-lee} a.k.a Zee and she's from St. Louis, Missouri. She is currently signed to U-C-Me Ent., a label started by St. Louis rapper Potzee and Murphy Lee (St. Lunatics). She's worked with Murphy Lee previously, singing hooks on his album "Murphy's Law". According to her MySpace page, while pursuing her music career she is also in Law School.
Aside from school, Zee stays busy with her most important venture, her young son. Zee's love of music stems from the St.Louis jazz days when her father played around the house and grandma and older sister singing. With inspiration coming from all genre's of music, Zee sights the late Marvin Gaye along with artists of today such as Mary J. Blige and Amel Larrieux for influencing her sweet style of portraying a young woman discovering not only love and relationships, but herself.
