One Night with Ben Lee at One Space HQ BondiBen Lee has been writing songs about the inner workings of his mind and heart for almost 25 years. Whether the subject matter was trying to impress girls in his Year 9 class, the existential poetic yearnings of an 18 year old, his wrestling with ambition and fame, or over the past decade and a half – grappling with matters of spiritual and psychological development, you can never accuse Ben of not wearing his heart on his sleeve.
Beginning with his lo-fi punk band Noise Addict, discovered by Sonic Youth & The Beastie Boys in 1992, and throughout his solo career, he has always been transparent as a songwriter, attempting to take his most intimate struggles, observations and yearnings and turn them into accessible, catchy songs that his loyal audience could digest. He has had topped Triple J’s Hottest 100, won ARIA awards, starred in movies, toured all over the world, but one can clearly sense that these have never been the main goal for Ben – rather, it has been his artistic and spiritual journey that has driven his decision making in his personal life and career.
Ben’s last album was “Songs About Islam for the Whole Family” with proceeds going to the ACLU. His folk duo “Radnor & Lee” with Josh Radnor are releasing their debut album Nov 10. He is currently workshopping his debut musical, a collaboration with legendary author Tom Robbins “B is for Beer”, as well as finishing production duties on the new Jill Sobule album.
This event is a one-off event for the love of music.
