Lee's solo career started at the age of 16, while he was still in Noise Addict. He began recording his first solo album, Grandpaw Would, in both Sydney and Chicago with producer Brad Wood. This was followed by the 1997 album, Something to Remember Me By, also produced by Wood. Lee was then featured in 1998's Theres Something About Mary soundtrack, with the song How To Survive A Broken Heart. 1999's Breathing Tornados, released on Pavlovic's new label Modular, marked a new direction for Lee as he introduced synthesizers and increased instrumentation into his sound. The album was a success in Australia, earning Lee ARIA Award nominations for Best Male Artist and Album Of The Year. The album's first single, "Cigarettes Will Kill You", was also nominated for Single Of The Year and finished second in that year's Triple J Hottest 100.
