Biography

Lee was a backing vocalist for the pop group Wham! in the early 1980s, but she left the group to work as a solo artist and also to join Paul Weller’s band, The Style Council. She was later married to Weller for 10 years (but now divorced), they have two children, Leah and Natt, who is also a working musician and appeared on stage with his father at Hammersmith Apollo aged 12.

Following her departure from Wham!, Lee released her first solo single, “Selina Wow Wow”, in 1983. Despite considerable airplay, the single failed to reach the top 40. In 1984, she then worked with The Style Council and appeared on their debut album Café Bleu (released as My Ever Changing Moods in North America). Lee can be heard on the tracks “Headstart for Happiness,” “It Didn’t Matter,” “The Lodgers,” “Walls Come Tumbling Down,” and “Shout to the Top.” Lee continued to record solo material during this time, but singles “Yippee Yi Yay!” and “Don’t Do It Baby” failed to chart.

In 1985, after the release of the second Style Council album Our Favourite Shop (which reached no.1) and a stint working with the band Animal Nightlife, Lee released another solo single; the self-penned ballad “See the Day”. The single became a UK hit and peaked at no.2 in December 1985, selling a quarter of a million copies in the UK alone, and earning Lee a silver disc. Twenty years later, the song was covered by Girls Aloud, their version peaking at no.9 on the UK Singles Chart in December 2005.
