Journey of a lifetime

TALKING toBen Lee is a cerebral workout. He is intelligent and articulate and pleasantly, even soothingly, verbose. He makes you think.

Lee is a far cry from the 14-year-old punk rocker in Noise Addict and the solo artist who becamea household name with the release of his single Cigarettes Will Kill You.The married father-of-onespeaks quietly, with a slight American accent, about the bigger picture.

I ask him what he thinks the universe will throw at him in 2016:“I see a lotof expansion, of opening up to more possibilities.Reminding myself thatthis is never just about the music or success in some kind of limited form, it is about making some form of contribution to a revolution of consciousness –getting really grounded in that, and trying to inspire myself and others.”

Lee describes his music as a soundtrack to an ongoing journey of discovery where he is still at “the tip of the iceberg”.

“For me,everything is an experiment.There is a wonderful experience in constantly challenging yourself andstepping into the new –because that’s where the juice is, that’s where the action is.”

Lee has experimented, musically, but returned to pop on last year’sLove Is The Great Rebellion.

“You kind of think why fight it? Imake these catchy songs that people like.This isa framework that I canwork in and it’s nice.”

And there’s always the added bonus of reaching a broader audience with a catchy hook. Of connecting with people without them realising.

“Yes.By working with an accessible medium, like a pop song, you can kind of Trojan horse some interesting material into people’s minds,” he said.

“The hook is important. Itcan’t replace the content but the hook has to be there in order for people to listen.”

Life is busy for Lee, who will be presenting keynote addresses and“breathwork” programs while on tour.

“To tell you the truth my life is so full, it is kind of moment to moment.I am just grateful for still having a dialogue, and being able to share my vision of art and consciousness.”

ON TOUR: Ben Lee plays at Lizotte’s New Lambton on March 17 and 18. Dinner and show $98; show only $45 (newcastle.lizottes苏州美甲美睫培训学校419论坛).
