Ben Lee Covers His Indie Roots With Quarter Century Classix

by Paul Cashmere on November 24, 2019

in News

Ben Lee has paid homage to the artist and songs behind his musical fabric with ‘Quarter Century Classix’.

A statement from Ben’s label New West Records reads, Quarter Century Classix started out of boredom and necessity. In January of 2019, he found himself snowed in, trapped by the polar vortex in a lonely Chicago hotel room. Nothing to do, nowhere to go, Lee thought about his first trip to the city twenty-five years earlier when he was recording his solo debut, Grandpaw Would, with the producer Brad Wood. Lee says, “Chicago plays such a key role in my music history, because that’s where I went to make my first solo record. I met incredible artists like Liz Phair and Rebecca Gates and all these people who were so important to me at the time.”

Ben will also perform songs from the album at the City Vineyard in New York City on 1 December, 2019.
