Ben Lee began his career as a young teenager in the early 90’s, in the Australian lo-fi punk band Noise Addict, who were discovered by taste-making artists Sonic Youth and the Beastie Boys.
But all of this heavy subject matter has never dampened Ben’s playful experimentation 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 is currently in pre-production for an animated “psychedelic children’s musical about alcohol” called 'B is for Beer’ that he co- created with legendary US author Tom Robbins.
