Producer Kick Lee Forges A Career In Music From Big Brands To Blockbusters

Kick Lee, center, with student from the Cincinnati Music Accelerator

Music producer Kick Lee has an ambitious goal; to put an end to starving artists. As a composer he's worked on the sound design team for X-Men: Apocalypse and he's created music for brands including Lexus but he also knows what it's like to struggle just to get paid for your work.

That's why Lee launched the Cincinnati Music Accelerator to train local artists in the music industry. He earned a $10,000 grant from the People's Liberty Haile Foundation in 2017 to start the accelerator. 

Kick Lee @ProducerKickLee  joins Cincinnati Edition to discuss his career and founding the Cincinnati Music Accelerator to help local musicians earn a living.
