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.
