Rooney is a five-piece rock band hailing from Los Angeles whose music is reminiscent of artists spanning from the '60s to the present day. Although the group has a distinctive style, its sound has been compared to everything from The Beatles to The Cars to Blur. Having toured the nation with acts such as Weezer and The Strokes, Rooney manages to capture elements from the past four decades and make them sound modern today. In a music culture where bands dominate, Ben Lee is the youngest singer/songwriter to make an impression on Australian music. Even before his solo career, in his early teens, Lee came to attention as a member of Sydney band Noise Addict. John Ralston's latest is 'Needle Bed.'
