Ben Lee

Honing an oeuvre of alt-pop eclecticism since he exploded onto the scene as a precocious 14-year-old with band Noise Addict in 1992, the 45-year-old is certain he’s stepping into his prime years – much like his musical heroes. With 450k monthly Spotify listeners and 73M global streams, Lee’s brutal honesty and authenticity as a singer-songwriter, etches his place as a singular voice in the pop canon.

Across his 30-year music career, the 4x ARIA award winning artist’s boasts an enviable catalogue which is presently represented by Warner Music Australia, including ‘Grandpaw Would’ [1995], ‘Something To Remember Me By’ [1997], ‘Breathing Tornados’ [1998] , 2x ARIA Platinum album ‘Awake Is The New Sleep’ [2005], ‘Ripe’ [2007], ‘The Rebirth of Venus’ [2009], ‘Deeper Into Dream ’ [2011] which have collectively spawned a multitude of chart hits, including ‘Cigarettes Will Kill You’, ‘Gamble Everything For Love’, ‘We’re All in This Together’ and ‘Catch My Disease’.

Now, collaborating with his wife, actress Ione Skye, on their company Weirder Together, Lee is supporting other artists to create bizarre and beautiful content spanning everything from podcasts to music to fanzines to film projects. The company has spawned an A.I. single from DeepFaith, a hit podcast in “Subtle Urban Sex Appeal”, taste-maker house concerts from Amyl & the Sniffers and Joanna Sternberg, and most recently Australian comedian Cameron James’ debut comedy/music single “Medium Dick” which has garnered Triple J airplay and 4 mil Instagram views. Suffice to say, Ben and Ione have a keen eye for eclectic talent. The company is a natural extension of Ben’s playful experimental attitude towards a career that has spawned iconic moments such as his short-lived side project with Ben Folds and Ben Kweller “The Bens”, his production of the Grammy-nominated Cho Dependent by Margaret Cho, his job as a band leader for the Tom Hanks produced ‘3 Minute Talk Show’ web series, or his Mixtape from Ben Lee album, where he invited guest singers such as Zooey Deschanel, Neil Finn, Luke Steele and Nina Person to sing songs he wrote especially for their voices. He has also collaborated with artists like Sarah Silverman and Lena Dunham and co-created a ‘psychedelic children’s musical about alcohol’ called B is for Beer  with legendary US author Tom Robbins.
