Ben Lee dedicates his seventh studio recording to Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty. A bold move for a man, but Ben recognizes that the strongest feminine qualities "such as compassion, nurturing, creativity, spontaneity, intuition, playfulness, tenderness and warmth…are qualities that we all, men and women, need to cultivate." The Rebirth of Venus (February 10th, 2009) was produced by Brad Wood, who also produced Ben’s breakout Awake Is The New Sleep (as well as his critically acclaimed debut Grandpaw Would and sophomore album Something To Remember Me By). A portion of proceeds from albums sold will be donated to FINCA’s Village Banking program. FINCA offers financial services, not charity, to the world’s lowest-income women entrepreneurs.

 

"The Rebirth of Venus’ first single, "What’s So Bad (About Feeling Good)," showcases Ben’s trademark pop craftsmanship and sense of humor. Complete with catchy hooks and sing-along chorus, the song features Ben’s future stepdaughter on pots and pans as well as backing vocals. 

 

Ben’s songs have been used in over 30 film, TV and commercial syncs off his last two albums. In the last year he’s had syncs on "Grey’s Anatomy," "One Tree Hill," and Kohl’s Department Stores in the US and Coca Cola internationally. His music was also recently used in the trailer for "He’s Just Not That Into You," starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Anniston, Drew Barrymore and Scarlett Johansson.
