Ben Lee has put out five albums since his debut on Grand Royal.

Ben Lee was in his early teens when he released his first solo record under the Beastie Boys’ Grand Royal label. Now he’s back with a great new album, Awake Is the New Sleep.

The CD is the sixth from the 26-year-old Australian, who is known for layering thoughtful lyrics on top of catchy tunes. And Awake doesn't break that string, as it brings a light touch to the sometimes heavy world of the singer-songwriter.
