Lee Pardini


Lee Pardini graduated in 2007 from the Manhattan School of Music with a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Piano. Shortly thereafter, he moved to LA and joined the rock band Dawes. Together, they have traveled the world and recorded 3 studio albums, most recently “Good Luck With Whatever” released on Rounder Records. Pardini has also toured, performed, and recorded with a variety of musical luminaries; most notably Roger Waters, Phil Lesh, Cass McCombs, Jonathan Wilson, Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Paul Bryan, Mandy Moore, The War on Drugs, Theo Katzman and Jeff Parker.

On February 12, 2021, Pardini released his debut jazz album entitled “Homebodies” via GroundUp Music (founded by Snarky Puppy bassist and bandleader Michael League). The album showcases Pardini’s original compositions and marries together a soft spot for solid, tightly arranged grooves with the spontaneity of an improvisational band. “Homebodies” features fellow Dawes bandmate Griffin Goldsmith on drums, along with Paul Bryan on bass, Jeff Parker on guitar, Rich Hinman on pedal steel and electric guitar, Josh Johnson on alto sax and Davey Chegwidden on percussion.
