ZEE is a modern rock band based out of Fort Collins, Colorado. Since the band’s inception, they have been writing music that fits between Alternative Rock (or “New Rock”) and Indie Pop, but with an unconventional variation. In this band, traditional electric guitar leads are replaced with electric violin melodies and solos which are played through effects pedals. This, paired with the band’s wide range of influences gives ZEE a sound that is all their own.
Lead singer, electric violinist and founder of the band, Zee Crain (from where the band gets it’s name), writes music about life experiences and dreams and carries the songs with a voice that has been compared to Christina Aguilera, Brandi Carlile, and Ann Wilson of Heart. ZEE was formerly known as “Zee Irelynn” and has recently rebranded to mirror the sound of their upcoming, full-length album. ZEE is made up of four members: Zee Crain on electric violin and vocals, Kyle Gravitz on guitar, Adam Wright on bass and BGVs and Malek Haltam on drums.
The members of ZEE draw their influences from bands such as Halestorm, Meg Myers, Led Zeppelin, Metallica and Grace Potter. Woven throughout the band’s music, the electric violin brings a new and dynamic edge to the rock n roll sound while occasionally showcasing the softer melodies that the violin is capable of.
