By maintaining an aggressive path of musical study and professional

achievement, W. Lee Hogans has fashioned a distinct musical style. He

formed his own band Pursuance in 2004. His songs, featuring strong

grooves with catchy melodies, encompass the worlds of Jazz, Hip-Hop,

and Soul. Stylistic influences range from Lee Morgan and Freddie

Hubbard to James Brown and Run DMC. Lee recently signed to the

Japanese record label P-Vine and released his second album with

Pursuance entitled What We Play is Life. WWPIL hit the market in 2015,

reaching 2nd place on the Japanese iTunes charts just behind Tony

Bennett and Lady Gaga. Lee Hogans and Pursuance has also dazzled

audiences at many destination venues throughout New York and New

Jersey, including the famous Blue Note jazz club, where the band is in

residency backing up Hip Hop legends like Prodigy, Masta Ace, and

Grand Puba.

Lee’s performance career gained notoriety by working with giants in the

entertainment industry. He is currently the trumpeter for comedian Dave

Chapelle as a member of the group Fred Yonnet and The Band With No

Name. Their performances include Radio City Music Hall and the SNL

After Party. Lee recently toured with Grammy-winning bassist Marcus

Miller on his Renaissance Tour in the US, Europe and Africa. He’s also

toured with Funk legend Maceo Parker – where school is always in

session! In 2009 he was the trumpeter for Jay-Z’s Blueprint III tour,

which included playing at President Barak Obama’s Inaugural Ball. He

was a member of legendary pop icon Prince and The NPG from

2007-2009. Other tours include Jill Scott, Sean “Diddy” Combs and The

Jonas Brothers. TV performances include Jimmy Fallon, David

Letterman, The Today Show, Ellen DeGeneres, Kelly and Michael, and

HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.

Lee has made influential moves in his career as a trumpeter-in-demand

and producer, diligently making a name for himself in New York City

and the tri-state area. When not touring with prominent musicians and

performance acts, Lee is in the studio recording, producing and mixing

songs with such artists as SoNuVo, Felix Peikli, Mark Ronson, Jadakiss,

Fantasia, Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes, Sheila E, and Prince.
