We discuss this odd moment in Ben Lee’s career, in which he has released his least commercially-minded record to date, while being drafted in as a mentor for the top rating television series The Voice, as well as looking back over his varied and storied career.

Hey friends – check out this new web series I’ve started “DEEP TALK IN THE SHALLOW END: POP CULTURE FROM A CONSCIOUSNESS PERSPECTIVE”. Share if you are inspired!
“Who wants to watch their lives retold to them on a regular basis?”
It’s hard to say that a phone conversation with Ben Lee is like chatting with a friend of yours, because your friends are never that honest. You can never ask your buds about the pain of seeing an ex-girlfriend or their deepest beliefs about religion, spirituality and family, but with Lee, these are the only topics that he wants to talk about.
The 90’s indie-pop Aussie has had a lot of practice airing these issues thanks to the new film documenting his life over the last decade. Starting out as just a small art-house film by a couple of friends, Amiel Courtin-Wilson’s latest documentary, Ben Lee: Catch My Disease, is an incredibly straightforward and honest portrayal of the pressures of fame on young visionaries and the steadfast relationships they build.
Beginning his career at age 14 in the critically acclaimed punk band Noise Addict, yearning for the acceptance and love as a pop star, and ultimately learning about inner peace and the power of spirituality, the film shows Lee in a very raw, yet endearing form. Catch My Disease “stars” Lee and his group of close personal friends who just happen to be some of today’s most popular people: Jason Schwartzman, Michelle Williams, Zooey Deschanel, Thurston Moore andMike D, as well as Lee’s ex-girlfriend Clare Danes.
Lee caught up with FILTER to discuss what it was like to have a film made about his life, the reception of his friends and family and to make sure that his twitter handle was mentioned. Don’t worry @benleemusic, we’ve got you covered. Read The Q&A at Filter Magazine.
