Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee makes his second appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live in Charleston, W.V. Lee first gained America's attention as a teenager in the late '90s, at a time when alternative rock was dominant on radio and television. His personal, mostly acoustic style stood out against the music of its day, and if you happened to see one of his videos on television at the time, chances are you still remember it.

Known for his earnest sense of humor, Lee was prominently featured as a commentator in VH1's inescapable I Love the '90s series of pop-culture retrospectives. For many years now, Lee has made his home in America, where he's found a sizable audience for his music. His latest album, Deeper Into Dream, was recorded in his home studio in Laurel Canyon, Calif., and is widely viewed as his most intimate record yet.

This Mountain Stage performance was originally published on May 3, 2012.
