Atlas Signs Pub Deal with LA Pop Producer, Nick Lee

We are delighted to announce the signing of Los Angeles based, pop producer and classically trained jazz trombonist, Nick Lee to join the Atlas Music Publishing family this past month.

Since learning to play the trombone at 12 years old, trombone has afforded Nick remarkable opportunities most notably to perform as the 1st trombonist in the GRAMMY Band, playing at numerous GRAMMY week events and recording an album at Capital Records, and to perform with renowned jazz musicians Wynton Marsalis, Jon Faddis, Christian McBride, Eric Harland, John Calyton, Hubert Laws, Jimmy Greene, Eric Reed, Ndugu Chancler, and Bill Charlap. While this has lead him to attend the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts and earned him an acceptance into The Julliard School of Music, he quickly gained interest in producing and decided to leave school to pursue a career as a pop producer.

In 2018, Nick kicked off his career by releasing, “Hotspice” with artist Halima under RCA Records UK which, landed them a premiere spot on Spotify’s New Music Friday UK playlist and since then, has been producing for distinguished independent and major label artists including Cody Simposon, CupcakKe, Ezinma, BabyJake, and Sage Charmaine to name a few. Also having worked for film and TV, Nick produced the theme song to “The 212” on Fuse TV and played trombone on the soundtrack for the Netflix Original film, “Like Father”.

Nick is currently in the studio working with co-writers such as Poo Bear, Bonnie McKee, PJ Bianco, Ian Thomas, Emlyn, and Michelle Buzz. He is also collaborating with 3RACHA from Stray Kids (JYP) on their forthcoming album, slated for release in October.
