Babybrutha is a 4 piece funk/rock/soul band founded by Lead vocalist and bass player Tim Lee. The band has carved out a reputation in the Chicago music scene for being exciting and electrifying. The band had recent success with "Fallen" being featured in the Netflix show Terrace House: opening new Doors. The song "Tired" was also featured in the short film "The Grind".
Major influences are Curtis, Prince, James brown (of course), George Clinton (and almost anyone associated with P-Funk) and Sly Stone. “Larry Graham James Jamerson and Bootsy are probably the only bass players that matter, but there are some other great ones.” Raphael Saadiq along with Tony Toni Tone are major influences. You can throw the Roots, Citizen Cope, Dangelo, Sade, Lenny kravitz, The Beatles and Outkast in there.
Tlee and his bass have opened for many local and established acts like Erykah Badu, Nina Sky, Kimo Williams and Bash. He has also performed with hip-hop groups such as Beat Monstas and Phashara and the list goes on. “I just want to make music and hopefully get a few people to bob their heads to it.”
