Jonathan Lee (Chinese: 李宗盛; pinyin: Lǐ Zōngshèng; born July 19, 1958 in Taipei, Taiwan) is a Taiwanese record producer, singer, and songwriter. Throughout the mid-1980s through the 1990s, he composed song lyrics and melodies for numerous musical artists in the Rock Records label, including Angus Tung, Sarah Chen, Sandy Lam, Sylvia Chang, Winnie Hsin, Tarcy Su, Jeff Chang, Jackie Chan, Chief Chao, and Wakin Chau.[1]

Lee is hailed as one of the godfathers of Taiwanese Mandopop. He was one of the most successful producers of the 1990s and 2000s and has been credited with building Rock Records into the foremost independent label in Asia. Many songs he wrote for Sarah Chen, Chao Chuan, Sandy Lam, Winnie Hsin, Jeff Chang and Wa Wa Jin Zhijuan became No 1 hits. Lee also produces the occasional solo album for himself and have recorded duets with many of his artistes.

In 1998, Jonathan Lee divorced his first wife and married Sandy Lam, one of his artistes at Rock Records. They have a daughter Li Xi'er (李喜兒). The couple eventually divorced in 2004.

In 2009, Lee formed "Super Band" with three other popular Taiwanese artistes at Rock Records: Wakin Chau, Luo Dayou and Chang Chen-yue.[1]
