Lee Miltimore


Oral History Information

Lee Miltimore is the founder of Lee’s Music, a music retail store and repair shop established in 1974 in British Columbia, Canada. After years of offering repairs on instruments and audio gear, the shop expanded into a retail business. While running the store, Lee also ran audio for several live sound events and front of house (FOH) for local music festivals. He has always been proud of the role he played in bringing families and friends together at these special events and seeing the enjoyment people gained from listening to music. Lee teamed with his son Mike, who grew up in the business, to create their own brand, Riversong Guitars, in 2006. Providing lessons for customers and handing instruments to young musicians for the first time are among Lee’s most rewarding career moments.
