They have been booked for eight shows in India so far, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. "Our musical influence would be Crowded House and bands similar to that," explained Lee. "Mick is the lead singer and has a great voice. I do the back-up vocals and play the bass." Lee and Vawdon will also release an album of their songs after the live performances.
"Jimmy Barnes is a friend and we told him about what we were doing, and straight away, he said that we could use his recording studio," Lee said. "That itself was a thrill. We are happy with the way the tracks are sounding," he added. Lee is also a part of an Australian band Six And Out and he insists he hasn’t ditched them.
“I’d love for music to be my future — who doesn’t want to be a rock star,” Lee said. “It is my passion. I've always joked that I was a musician who used his sport to prop himself up, but this could be a real chance to make things happen," he added.
