Friends, here we are in December 2016. All together now....."Hey, wha happen?"
I'm shocked just like you. It's been a funny year right? In any case, we shall carry on.
Looking forward to Christmas and of course The Rex on NYE.
Also, you bet there is a new Christmas song coming. It's recorded! In the meantime you can still download all my Christmas Music on iTunes



Thanks and blessings,

Lester McLean Continues his Holiday Tradition with ‘This Damn Christmas Song’

2016 will undoubtedly be seen by many as a year of tragedies and loss particularly in the Arts and Entertainment World. The past 11 months seem to have been filled with much adversity, outrage, grief, and anxiety. With these things in mind, Lester penned the thoughtful and reflective yet hopeful "This Damn Christmas Song". "It was much harder to find the creative juices to write the song this year but I ended up going with that feeling as an inspiration", says Lester. As a multi-instrumentalist, Lester performed the track on guitar, soprano sax, percussion and, of course, vocals.

The song was recorded, edited, and mixed by Robin "The Boy Wonder" Eccleston for Lyrics and Beats Productions. Ron Camilleri mastered the song for RDC Music.

We hope that you will enjoy it.

10 things you need to know about me:

  • 1) I’m heart –centered
  • 2) I sing, play the sax (Tenor, Alto, and Soprano), guitar, and conga/djembe percussion
  • 3) I love performing and entertaining
  • 4) I have grown to love recording and the record-making process
  • 5) I write music and have released 7 CD’s to date
  • 6) Honesty and Integrity are very important to me
  • 7) I love all kinds of music and do anything from Rock to Reggae and Funk to Jazz. (It all swings to some degree.)
  • 8) If I had to pick one artist that influenced my drive to entertain it would be Michael Jackson. As a young black kid, he was everything. His legacy is forever but I miss him.
  • 9) I love hockey and the Montreal Canadiens are my team. (I’m Toronto born and raised but I got off the Leaf bandwagon in 1982. Still a good call!)
  • 10) I mainly perform with The Lester McLean Band, Grooveyard, and Elton Rohn but I am currently freelancing a little more. Bring on the music!
  • 11) Bonus thing – My favourite artists include: MJ, Living Colour, Van Halen, Phil Collins, Sammy Hagar, Bob Marley, The Police/Sting, Marvin Gaye, Chick Corea Elektric Band, Brantford Marsalis, Dave Mathews Band, Anita Baker, Hall and Oates, INXS, and many more! Read More
