Ben Lee began his career as a young teenager in the early 90’s, in the Australian lo-fi punk band Noise Addict, which was discovered by taste-making artists Sonic Youth and the Beastie Boys.
From his first acoustic-driven solo album “Grandpaw Would” in 1995 (featuring Liz Phair), Ben’s songs have always attempted to take his most complex and existential romantic yearnings, and compress them into sublimely catchy and melodic pop songs.
This seemingly paradoxical quest has yielded some wonderful results over the years: It was 2005’s “Awake is the New Sleep” that saw Ben get the worldwide recognition his songs deserved spawning the alterna-hit “Catch My Disease” that went Top 10 in Spain and the Netherlands and was awarded the “Song of theYear” ARIA award as well as going Double Platinum in Australia. But it was the song “We’re All in this Together” that surely is Ben’s greatest legacy so far as a songwriter, a song that has become an anthem of sorts for a troubled world over the past year.
This year is shaping up to be another wild ride as Ben preps for the release of his forthcoming album featuring collaborations with Shamir, ChrisAan Lee Hudson, Money Mark, Sadie Dupuis and Zooey Deschanel.
