His solo career and vivacious guitar strung tunes embrace a new phase in soulful country rock music. Lee has performed and appeared on many albums as a guitar-gun for hire with some of Australia’s legendary musical talents including Shane Howard, Archie Roach, the late great Rubie Hunter, Jessica Mauboy and Dean Geyer (Australian Idol fame), Jimmy Barnes and Paul Kelly, The Mary G Show and the list goes on. “Sonnyboy” is a childhood nickname given to Lee by his elders that carries the teaching and memories of spending time out on the Framlingham mission as a boy. He continues the storytelling that was inspired by his indigenous grandfather, the great Banjo Clarke (Wisdom Man) that we all share the land we walk on as outlined on his anthemic track, “Reconciliation Song”.
