Ben Lee began his career as a musician at the age of 14 with the Sydney band Noise Addict, but focused on his solo career when the band broke up in 1995. He has released eleven solo studio albums.
From his first solo album “Grandpaw Would” in 1995, 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. But 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 was awarded the “Song of the Year” ARIA award as well as going Double Platinum in Australia. This album saw Ben tour all over the world. 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, quoted from everyone from politicians, to newspapers, to school children.
But all of this hefty subject matter has never dampened Ben’s playful experimentation collaborating with Sarah Silverman, Lena Dunham, Ben Folds, Ben Kweller, Zooey Deschanel, Neil Finn, to name only a few.
We are beyond excited and honoured to have Ben Lee as part of Small Fry Rock!
