Ben Lee description
One of the best loved acts in Australian rock, this event will be a celebration of Ben’s 25 years as a solo artist and a statement of where he goes next. His work has always been eclectic - from The Bens (his one off collaboration with Bens Folds and Kweller) to a 'children’s psychedelic musical about alcohol' he wrote with legendary author Tom Robbins called B is for Beer. From his 2019 release, Quarter Century Classix featuring acoustic covers of favourite alt-rock songs from his teenaged-prodigy days, to the earliest home recordings he made for his first solo record Grandpaw Would (1995) which Flood magazine described as “lo-fi gems that exude vulnerable, innocent energy.” The fact is Ben has always had the sheer talent and skill to make anything he does worth listening to, and he doesn’t need a band to make his whole eclectic oeuvre shine.
